Healthy Lunchbox Recipies

According to NHS choices a balanced lunchbox should contain:

  • Starchy foods like bread, rice, potatoes or pasta

  • Protein foods like meat, fish, eggs or beans

  • A dairy item, like cheese or yoghurt

  • Vegetables or salad and a portion of fruit

But what if your child isn't a fan of 'boring' sandwiches?

Why not cut them into fun unique shapes, like a star or a heart? Simply uses shaped cutters on the bread, and freeze the offcuts of bread to save and make into breadcrumbs in future!

And if that isn't enough to get them excited, why not try introducing wraps in their lunch boxes instead?

These wraps are super easy to make - simply add your usual fillings from a sandwich into the wrap, roll it up, and cut it in half!

What can you do if your child hates bread? Make them delicious cold pasta salads! Pasta salads can be customised constantly with different sauces, vegetables, and proteins, depending on dietary preferences.

Now we've got the basics down, let's look through some recipes to help inspire your future lunch boxes!
