    Question School Lunch Box Ideas!

    My children are going into year 6 and year 4.

    Last year their lunch boxes were so boring! I want to have interesting food for them this year.

    So ideas and recipes please, please....

    Mine are going into years 5, 3 and my youngest is starting kindy.
    My oldest won't eat sandwiches or wraps so I make regular batches of pizza scrolls, puff pastry pizza pinwheels, mini muffin sized quiches and mini hoisin chicken meatballs. I freeze in individual bags, stick them in their lunch box and they're defrosted by lunch time. My middle one likes ham/chicken and salad wraps and sandwiches so he'll get them as well.
    My oldest one will take little tubs of chickpeas or olives and both big ones like to take salad bits and pieces.
    Hope that helps.

    Can I please have the recipe for the hoisin chicken meatballs? My kids would love these.

    Do the quiches freeze okay?

    The quiches freeze and defrost really well - no complaints so far.
    I will definitely give you that meatball recipe but it's in a party food book at home and I'm away atm but 2babyno1onboard might have the same book?

    @Elijahs Mum do you have a recipe for your falafels? My DDs love falafels from the markets but they are expensive!

    You are very organised! The list is great...
