Is the whole thing taken outside at recess and then again at lunch?..my 5 year old would probably pick everything apart at recess and then drop half of it and end up with nothing for lunch! She is not quite used to balancing her lunch box on her lap as at preschool she sat at a table for morning tea and lunch. Also, crunch and sip needs to be in a separate container. But its on the cards when/if she becomes more coordinated!!!
    DD is in Prep (first year of school in VIC) and takes her whole lunchbox out at recess and then again at lunch time. Surprisingly she hasn't dropped it everywhere yet as she isn't all that co-ordinated! She knows she is allowed to pick 2 of the smaller sections of her lunchbox for recess and the 2 large ones + one small one for lunch. Crunch and sip is always separate (she usually just takes an apple or banana).

    We use this slice recipe which is really easy. I also freeze it and the kids don't complain! (I don't like bananas so can't vouch for the texture as I haven't tried it).

    We also make alot of lunchbox things from this website (and her ebook is great!)

    Lots of the savoury and sweet recipes can be frozen which I love. The only thing is that some of the ingredients can be a little unusual (for me anyway!). Most can be substituted though (e.g. spelt flour for regular flour) if you'd rather. We love her cheese crackers, seed mixes, muesli bars, scrolls, lemon slice.......the list goes on!

    @melimum they are just silicon cupcake cases. Coles/woolies sell them and also I've seen them in $2 shops.

    You are a genius! I have been trying to find something to put in my yumbox to break up the big sandwich portion while keeping this separate. Never thought of the silicon cups.

    @melimum

    I asked for the picture to be removed as I realized you could see my DD's name!

    I used this recipe for chicken and veg nuggets

    Even my fussy 3.5 year old eats them!

    I got my silicon cupcake thingys from Kmart for $2.

    Any tips on keeping avo from going brown on a,sandwich? Dd loves it but won't eat it brown as it looks rather gross lol. I've tried lemon juice and didn't work?

    I usually mash the avo with lemon juice and olive oil but I've found if you wrap the sandwich or wrap with plastic wrap it doesn't go brown ( I think the air is what turns it brown )

    Pizza day today at school so no lunch box!

    I have some cool stainless steel bento boxes that I got at the health food shop, they stack on top of each other in layers so the food doesn't slide around everywhere!
