Looking for some school lunch box ideas? Here are some great freezer friendly lunchbox snack recipes for the busy mum!
The school year is fast approaching, which means school lunches everyday! To stay on top of the high demand your kids put on you with school lunches, dedicate a big baking day of sweet and savoury lunch box snacks at the end of the school holidays so you’re ready for the new school term. I then put all my freshly baked goodies into the freezer so that I can add them to the kid’s lunch boxes. A freezer stockpile will help you so much on those busy mornings! I find it very convenient and handy having food ready made for lunch boxes.
To help inspire you, I’ve collated some of my family’s favourite recipes from my recipe collection that will make great school snacks for your children’s lunch boxes.
Some of these recipes and loads more can be found in my Lunch Box Recipe Cookbook. There are 50 nut-free and freezable recipes inside that are perfect for school lunches.
Lunchbox Snack Recipes for the Busy Mum
These 100+ cookies from 1 mix have to be one of my absolute favourite recipes for so many different reasons. To make the basic batter, it only requires 4 ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry and is super budget friendly. I like to divide the batter into four and have four different flavourings.
Nothing beats a good muffin and my friend’s Energy Muffins go down well with everyone in the household. They will power up your kid’s brains for the school day and can be frozen as well. I must admit that I pinch some of these for my work lunch too, because they are delish!!!

Another fabulous lunchbox snack that’s healthy for your kids, and will also give them an energy boost when they start to feel flat, are my Easy and Yummy Energy Balls. They taste like peanut butter and honey on toast, so the kids should be impressed.
