Back to School - Healthy Lunch Box Ideas For Kids

 

Although cooked dinners at school are getting healthier, a packed lunch box gives you more control over what your child is eating.  There are so many options that you can pack that are healthy and nutritious.

Here are a few healthy lunch box ideas if you’re stuck and looking for some inspiration:

Homemade Chocolate And Nut Candy Balls With Chopped Biscuit On Dark Background.  Copy Space.

 

Homemade Snack Balls

Making your own snacks means that you can control what goes into them and they could work out a lot cheaper.  Snack balls, which tend to be a mix of medjool dates, rolled oats, nut butter (optional) and cocoa powder work well.  You can get even more inventive with what you add too and change the flavours up.  Just whiz the ingredients up in a blender and roll the mixture into balls. They store well in both the fridge and freezer.

 

Crustless quiche with vegetables and herbs

 

Crustless Quiches

These are great because they can be made up in advance and you can use them as a vehicle to get more vegetables into your children.  They’re basically just omelettes baked in a muffin tray in the oven. They take little effort and taste so good.

Classic Hummus With Carrot And Cucucmber Sticks

 

Hummus and Crudités

Vegetables make a great snack - carrots, cucumber, mange tout, and baby corn.  They’re full of vitamins and fibre for growing children and are great when dipped in some hummus for a tasty snack.

 

Dried ginger. Dried mango. Dried pineapple. Dried cranberries. Dried fruits

 

Dried Fruits

I’m sure kids would love you forever more, if you popped a packet of sweets in their lunch boxes. However, a healthier alternative could be dried fruits like raisins, dates, and cranberries, which are sweet and have a chewy texture like gummy bears.

 

Bowl Of Pasta Salad In A Red Bowl

 

Pasta Salads

Instead of sandwiches, why not shake things up a bit and try a pasta salad in your little ones lunch box instead.  They’re a great way to squeeze more vegetables in and also can be incredibly versatile.
