5 Ideas for Creative School Lunches

For mums & dads, when inspiration hits, a fantastic lunchbox is only a few minutes away. However, sometimes no matter how hard you try, you just can’t figure out the path to a creative lunch box. We’re here to help with a few tips.

1. Think outside the bread

Not everything needs to be a sandwich. Try wrapping lunch favourites in tortillas, or even go a step further by frying them and making quesadillas with gooey melted cheese.

2. Get creative with favourites

Always think of twists on traditional foods. For example, make pizza with tortillas or mini pita bread slices instead of dough.

3. Go for a DIY lunch

Rather than making lunch, you can pack all components separately and let the kids take control of their meal. Slice up some cheese and fruits, then add a hummus dip on the side along with crackers, for example. All they need to do is mix and match!

4. Use the muffin tray 

Traditional muffins can be boring, so why not use this handy tool to make muffin-shaped treats instead? You can mix up some veggies with eggs and pop them into the oven or even make macaroni and cheese cupcakes.

5. Spice up those beverages

Add colour, flavour, fruits, and fun while keeping beverages cool with infused ice cubes.

Bonus: Write your kids little notes

Aside from old-fashioned, handwritten notes, you can snap a rubber band around bananas and attach small motivational messages. You can also stick some labels on containers.

There you go mums and dads, hopefully we’ve made it a bit easier for you. Share with us your favourite lunch box ideas!
