School Lunch Box Ideas

Lunch Box Collage

It’s nearly that time of year where we get ready to send our kids back to school for another year.

This is my first year sending my daughter off to school. I can’t believe my baby girl is starting Kindergarten. It’s such a big milestone in all our lives. I think we’re all a bit nervous but excited at the same time.

So what am I going to make her for lunch? I’ve been having a look on Pinterest and it seems that a Vegemite sandwich and some fruit doesn’t cut it these days. You can be a lot more creative and healthy these days with insulated lunch boxes and groovy little containers for your yoghurt etc. My daughter’s school even has a fridge in each classroom! There was none of that my day.

Anyway, I have been making lunches for her for preschool last year but I have to get creative now for five days a week of school and they don’t have a canteen either which I think is a bit strange so there’s no choice but to make to healthy homemade lunches. Not such a bad thing at all.

Here’s a few ideas I’ve found which are healthy and easy to make. I don’t think I’m going to have time to get the cookie cutters out and make funny faces and the like. As cute as that is, I’m just not sure it’s feasible.

I love these Pizza Pinwheels from Simple as that Blog. I think I might try these. You can make a batch and freeze them. I like idea of a wrap on this post too. I think my daughter will like them.

I like the idea of these skewers from
What Lisa Cooks. Fruit would be good too.

I love these fruit roll ups by Our Best Bites. They look very easy to make.

My Banana and Blueberry Muffins are always a hit. I make them in mini size sometimes and freeze them.

These recipes from Create Bake Make look great.

These Ham and Corn Muffins from The Organised Housewife would be a good alternative to a sandwich.
