Lunchbox Ideas

Luke takes a packed lunch to school every day and I try to vary the food he takes. This is a typical lunch for Luke, he usually helps prepare it so he knows what he is having for lunch each day and as he has chosen his food it generally all gets eaten. 

We generally include the following items in his lunchbox

A drink

Spreadable cheese and crackers or a sandwich/wrap 



Jelly or yogurt

It is important to have a good water bottle that doesn't leak, Luke has had this bottle from Mountain Warehouse for a couple of years and it is the perfect size for his lunchbox. It has a good seal on the lid and as long as the lid is screwed on properly it doesn't leak.

Luke has no enamel on his front teeth so we try and avoid sugary snacks so the Hartley's No Added Sugar Jelly pots are a perfect treat for him, there are lots of flavours to choose from and his favourite is raspberry.

I always try and include some fruit or sticks of vegetables for Luke. He especially likes cucumber, carrots and peppers which I put in a small lidded pot. Luke likes lots of different fruits and he will take pots of grapes, strawberries or raspberries too.

If we have time we sometimes make our own sausage rolls which he will have instead of a sandwich. 

Hartley's Jelly Pots is championing the back to school period with a new campaign called Hartley's Your Lunchbox. The campaign motivates parents to turn their hand to brilliant lunch creations and from July if you collect 12 special edition green lids from the No Added Sugar Jelly Pots you can claim a free lunchbox and stickers. The lunchbox will be perfect for all the new starters in September.

What do you include in your child's packed lunch?
