I hope all your kiddies have enjoyed this first week back at school or are excited to be starting next week! I have been asked if I could put all my lunchbox tips within one blog post for easy reference, so here it is:
The Organised Housewife Lunchbox Post Summary
I put together a Guide to choosing the best lunch box for your child – with so many different varieties and styles to choose from you will find this list really helpful.
Healthy School Lunch Ideas – It’s hard to decide what to put in the lunchbox each day. In this post Healthy School lunch ideas I share my strategy and guidelines to help create a variety of choices so they don’t get bored with the ‘everyday’ food, as we don’t want it returned and our little treasures going hungry.
50+ Freezer friendly Lunch Box Ideas – I do a big bake up every 2-3 weeks filling up the freezer with baked muffins, biscuits, scrolls and more for the kids lunchboxes. See the full list of recipe ideas here + my tips on how to prepare for a big baking session.
More School Lunch box Recipes – here I shared loads more recipes to fill the kids lunch boxes, homemade rollups, snack balls, sweet scrolls, slices and more. View full list here.
Allergy Friendly School/Kindy Lunchbox Options – a list of no dairy, no egg, no nut, no sugar, no salt lunchbox ideas, view post here.
Muffins – I freeze just about everything I make, including all my muffins, see all muffin recipes here, this is my favourite at the moment, Peaches n Cream Muffin, with a yummy cream cheese centre. My kids are loving the Cinnamon Crumb Muffin at the moment too.
Plus you can organise a weekly lunchbox food plan using my Lunch Box Planner printable, available here. Includes 4 different lunch box planner pages in one file.
Lunch box ideas – Plus see all my blog posts with images of my kids lunch boxes, where I detail what I packed in them here.
Hope these ideas above help you to create some fun and healthy lunch boxes for your kids
