Healthy Lunch Box Meals.

When preparing your children’s lunch box, I know how easy it can be to just chuck in food and get on with other stuff that needs doing but I promise you, you’ll find that if you spend those extra minutes being creative, you’ll see a difference in your child’s eating.

Sandwich cutters- Whenever I make Rosie a packed lunch, I always cut the sandwich into a shape. I got Rosie a cookie cutter in the shape of a butterfly and she loves the fact that her food is a fun shape. You can buy lots of different shapes and surprise your little ones at lunch times.

Creating your own – Get your little ones involved and let them help you make their food, for example, letting them pick their sandwich fillings and help you safely cut them into what shape they want.

Imagination! – With Halloween coming up, why don’t you get some edible pens and draw a spooky face on their oranges or apples? You could do anything to make your little one laugh!

Mix it up! – Easier said than done, I know, but don’t just use the same foods day in day out. They will get bored and lose interest – spice it up a bit. One day make a sandwich & the next do a nice pot of pasta!

Growing your own! – If you have the time, it could always be worth growing your own fruit and veg with help from your little ones. It can be both educational and exciting for them and they may try new and different food if they have grown it themselves. I’m currently growing carrots with Rosie, and she is very excited to try them!

Do you have any tips on how to make lunch fun and healthy for your children?

Until next time,
