21 savoury kids’ lunch box recipes

As I have been creating new lunch box recipes for the 2015 Family Planner Lunch Box Calendar, I have been delving into the stats of the blog to see which recipes have been the most popular on the blog over the last six and a half years, in terms of the number of times the posts have been seen.

I have come up with two lists to share on the blog; the 21 most popular savoury kids’ lunch box recipes which you can find below and the 21 most popular savoury kids’ lunch box recipes which I will share later this week.

Our current lunch box set up for the primary school kids

Kids Konserve lunch box review
I am often asked what do I use for a lunch box for my kids. The photo above shows the lunch box set up we are currently using for the primary school kids. We use:

This works well for us as we can:

  • add whole pieces of fruit if needed
  • the kids can have cut up fruit and veg for brain food
  • items can be made the night before and stay fresh
  • items can be easily kept separate
  • kids know what is for lunch and what is for recess
  • they can take single items out as needed
  • it can keep food cold
  • items don’t get crushed
  • and it is waste free
