The summer is drawing to a close and it will soon be time for school to start once again. Fortunately for us, both of the children will be having free school meals, but if you plan on providing a lunchbox for your little one, I’ve come up with a list of items for inspiration to keep things mixed up throughout the week!
It’s worth noting that some schools have stricter policies than others and won’t allow certain foods, so always check first if you’re unsure. It’s also worth noting that in general, schools will have a no nut policy in place in case of allergies so things like peanut butter shouldn’t be used.
Crudités (chopped cucumber, celery, carrot, peppers)
Dips e.g. Hummus, salsa
Chunks of cheese
Soup in a thermos
Sliced meats such as ham, chicken, beef
Fresh fruit – pears, tangerines, plums, peaches, apricots
Slices of pineapple
Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries
