Lunch Box Ideas October

Thankfully we are on school holidays and I don’t actually have to think about lunch boxes, but when the kids go back to school it wil be October and here are some lunch box ideas for the month of October.

{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.}

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.

Lots of nice fruit and veg coming into season at the moment – what are you cooking with?
