We hope our guide to packedlunches has given you some ideas to tackle the daily chore with a bit more confidence.
Some final tips to keep you going through the 'what can I give them' moments;
Make lunchboxes at the same time you’re making dinner – without fail!
Print off a menu for each day to put in the lunchbox
Keep a record of each week’s lunches so that you have something to go back to when inspiration is lacking!
Sit down at a weekend with your kids and let them help design some lunches – keeping them involved makes them more likely to eat what you give them and fosters a healthy interest in good food.
Get your kids to rate the food in the lunchbox
Make it interesting – maintain variation across the week/cut food into shapes using cutters/chop up fruit and make a salad etc.
So we hope this has given you some ideas as to what to do over the coming weeks and months of packed lunch making!
