Healthy Packed Lunch Ideas from Saucepan Kids - Back to School lunch ideas

So you’ve spent a small fortune on the new schoolbooks, uniforms, shoes and now it’s time to start thinking about those dreaded daily packed lunches. If you’re looking for some lunchbox inspo, check out our list below.

Always try to plan ahead and get those lunches ready the night before where possible. It’ll save so much hassle (and arguments) in the morning. Don’t forget to get the kids involved in prepping those lunchboxes. They’re more likely to eat what’s in them if they’ve been part of the process.

1) Sandwich fillings (using bread, crackers, bagels or pitta bread)

or cold leftovers

or hot leftovers

  • Homemade soup in a Thermos flask is a great lunch for older primary school children and the secondary school teenagers – just don’t forget the spoon!

2) Fruit or Veg

  • Kids eat their lunch very quickly so make sure that it’s an apple, banana or plum that they can run out to the playground with, of if it’s an orange, try to have it peeled already.
  • Chopped up veggies like carrot, pepper, cucumber or cherry tomatoes could be eaten at their desk at ‘little break’.

3) Healthy ‘treats’

4) Drink

  • Preferably water or milk in a BPA free reusable bottle (don’t forget a small frozen ice block just to keep everything cool!)

Please be careful of sending any nut related products into school in case any of your children’s classmates suffer from allergies.

What do you like to put in your child’s lunchbox?
