Recently my eldest son has been complaining about the lunches I have been giving him. To be honest, I don't blame him. I tend to give him the same things everyday as its quick and easy. I normally give him ham and cheese sandwiches, a yogurt, some grapes/raisins, a bag of crisps and an innocent smoothie. I never really know what is a good lunch box. I have tried asking him what he would like and what other children have in their boxes but he doesn't really give me much information. Of course my next step would be to go to the good old Internet for some help. Pinterest for me is the best place to go. Today I wanted to share some of the amazing ideas I have found and will be using.
These ideas are aimed at ensuring I give my children the most energy and vitamins to get them through their busy school days.
Cheese and Fruit
This idea is super healthy and simple to do. The box contains one serving of whole wheat crackers, mild cheddar cheese (use cookie cutters to make fun shapes), sliced cucumber, grapes, baby carrots and strawberries.

These pizza rolls are not super healthy but I know my son will love these. He is a pizza addict! For me, I love that I can make a huge batch and freeze them for when I need them. The recipe is linked above.
Sausage pasta bake

My children are complete pasta monsters. Whenever I ask them what they would like for tea, their answer is always pasta. This is quick and easy to make and my son does not mind eating cold pasta at all.

This is a super healthy idea which may take some persuading to get my son to eat. If its green, he wont eat. I am still determined to get my children into salad though.
Those a just a couple of little ideas I have come across. What to you pack in your children lunches?
