  • My daughter was fussy too. I have a small ice-brick in my children’s lunchboxes and find the Smash insulated range are great with little containers that I bought separately.

    -A favourite sandwich or roll (a favourite here is ham and cheese)
    -Fruit – a small apple, banana, mandarin or grapes (cherry tomatoes if he’ll eat them!)
    -Cheese pieces (cut from a family sized block) and crackers in separate tubs so the crackers don’t get soggy
    -home made mini muffins or banana cake (I also sometimes buy the $3 Coles brand banana cake – it’s one all the kids like, slices easily, and can be frozen)
    – sultanas or other dried fruits for variation.

    Most schools will outline the types of things they prefer you to send too, and often have some great ideas. There are lots of great recipes here on MoM too and I make something with the kids most weekends that they then take to school all week (like the muffins, banana cake etc)
