Only three weeks left until we have a break from making lunch boxes here in Victoria (guess who’s counting??). Below are some lunch box ideas for inspiration to keep you going until the end of the term!
Please note, I am not a nutritionist/dietitian. These lunch box ideas are what I actually feed our kids and taken into account with the rest of their diet and their level of physical activity, I am pretty happy with the balance they have. But like most things with parenting, there is always room for improvement so what I feed the kids for lunch is a work in progress.

I am often sent emails asking about the wraps I use for the kids lunches. These are from 4MyEarth and they have just added a whole new range of designs for their wraps and pockets which you can check out here.
For more inspiration, the table below list some fruit and veg which are in season for September. This isn’t a complete list, but just a selection of items that you might like to try including in the kids lunch boxes, either raw or baked into a snack / meal (more comprehensive lists can be found here Seasonal Fruit And Vegetables In Australia):

You can also check out my lunch box ideas board on Pinterest. I have recently re-organised my boards to ensure they are better categorised, so you might like to check out the rest of the boards too!
If you are not familiar with Pinterest it is a image based book marking tool. It is a great way to organise all the sites you like around the web. You can follow me on Pinterest as Planning Queen.
Are you looking forward to school holidays too?
