I really don't have a specific and planned meal everyday for my kids lunchbox. As long as it is nutritious, it's okay for me. These usually includes veggies, fruits, milk, rich in carbs and protein foods.
Will she eat wraps? DS has just switched to them instead of sandwiches.
Instead of sandwiches I do wraps, Pinwheels, salads, pasta or rice salad, cheese crackers and some cut up kabana, cheese and tomatoes on saladas/premium cracker type thing, vegmite worms saladas, a tin of tuna and crackers, cold snags or chicken legs
Last night I made a rice mix that seemed to work well. It was basically 1 cup brown rice, one tin flavored tuna and some steamed veggies, all mixed up.
I portion it into those 4 piece decor sets and my DD has one for lunch or dinner and seems to go well.
Not sure if I count as a lunchbox mummy yet as DD is only 14 months old.
Well I did up tomorrow lunch box- a small container of Jalna strawberry yoghurt, 7 or 8 strawberries, an Apple, three of those little banana bikkies and a ham and cream cheese sandwich on soy and linseed bread
DS' kindy is nut and egg free so I have been making little apricot bliss balls using ground oats instead of almond meal.
Half a cup of dried apricots
A cup of rolled oats, blitzed in the blender till dusty.
A few tbs of fresh orange juice.
Put apricots and oats into the processor, whizz until fruit is finely chopped. Add juice a tblsp at a time and whizz until it all clumps together. Roll into balls and roll through coconut.
Everyone probably has their own zucchini slice recipe but I just made some and here is mine!
5 eggs ( I use organic but try free range at least)
Glug olive oil
2 zucchini grated
1 carrot grated
1/2 onion grated
1 cup grated tasty cheese
Corn from 1 corn cob (cooked)
1 Tablespoon chopped chives ( or any herb)
1 Tablespoon chia seeds
1 cup wholemeal self raising flour ( sifted)
Mix eggs in big bowl, sift over flour, mix well and mix in the rest of the ingredients and pour into lined square cake tin or slice tin ( or muffin tins) and bake in pre heated 175 oven for 30 mins
I've also added salmon or tin tuna for an added protein/omega 3 kick!
