Yummy homemade school lunch snack ideas that are healthy to eat, quick to prepare, and free of waste and plastic packaging.

Making quick, easy and nutritious lunches for your children to enjoy whilst at school is simple, it just takes a little forethought… and that’s where I come in! In a bid to take the guesswork, stress and strain out of making school lunches (that the kids actually eat!), I am sharing another kids lunch box idea to inspire you. This easy peasy lunch idea comes packed with variety, can be thrown together in minutes, and is 100% waste free!

School lunchboxes available here

I love when my kids’ school lunches are colourful – it’s the sign of a healthy well-balanced lunch that’s packed with fresh food.

This bento style lunchbox is available online here, and the silicone cups are available here. Both these products make it easy to pack a no-waste school lunchbox that is full of variety.

I like to prepare these muffins in a silicone muffin pan (available online here) because it makes them so easy to pop out, and as this muffin has cheese, the silicone is especially easy to clean up.

These muffins are freezer friendly, so I put them straight into an airtight container and then the freezer, so that they’re ready to be popped frozen straight into the school lunch boxes.
