    Default School lunchbox and tips

    With my eldest starting "big school" it's got me thinking about what to send her lunch in, and what to eat. She has previously had food provided or a fridge for lunch I've sent.
    Hit me with boxes you recommend and food that can stand hours of room temperature apart from the good ol Vegemite sandwich

    Following!! My little miss is also starting this year. I sent her to her transition days with an apple, carrot, cucumber & celery sticks, ham salad sandwich, yoghurt & carrot muffin. All in an insulated lunch box and bag

    The Tupperware lunchbox range is great. Love a lifetime guarantee!
    I use the sandwich keeper plus and put some crackers, cut up fruit or raisins, veggie sticks, sandwich or wrap, and yoghurt pouch in it. Then in the insulated carry bag with ice block.

    I love these lunch boxes

    Keeps everything nice and cool with the frozen water bottle in the top. I also put it in a cooler bag.
    I make sausage rolls and mini pizza and freeze them (uncooked). I throw them in the oven first thing in the morn and 15-20 mins they are done. In the lunch box, nice and fresh. Pizza scrolls too...puff pastry rolled up with pizza fillings. Again frozen raw and cooked fresh in the morn.
    Wraps are always a winner here too, ham and cheese usually. Cut up fruit, veg sticks as well.

    I freeze squeezy yogurt packs to act as an ice pack. According to DD1 they are thawed but still nice & cold at lunchtime.

    If you send peeled/cut apple or pear leave it to soak in a bowl of cold (not icy) water for 10mins before scooping out shake off excess water and pop in a sealed container. Keeps it crisp and stops it going brown for a couple hours.
