Lunchbox inspiration for the day.  An easy to put together and yummy lunch idea to pack for your child for school.

Morning Tea

  • Bliss Balls – find my big range of bliss ball recipes here.
  • Cheese and tomato crackers. Use a bento style lunchbox so the items can be sent to school separately. No more soggy crackers!
