Preparing new and exciting lunches every day can be hard. Without a doubt, what the kids loved last week they hate this week and they are always complaining that their friends have better lunches. That’s why we are excited to help you become a Lunchbox Legend as we join the IGA campaign!
IGA conducted some research into lunchboxes and parents came back saying the following:
80% of you felt time pressure when preparing lunches
87% struggle to keep their kids excited by their lunch box
two thirds of you are telling IGA that they feel pressure from schools, teachers and parents when preparing lunches.
With all this in mind we have created some lunchbox ideas below to help take the stress out of preparing your lunches:
Here are some of our easy tips for a great lunchbox:
Make your lunchbox colourful! Use fruit and veggies to make lunch look delicious and exciting
Small portions are less overwhelming for littler children. Create a box with a large variety of small sample food like grapes, sandwiches cut with small cookie cutters, carrot sticks, berries, tomatoes and cheese.
Batch bake on the weekend for quick lunches. Make muffins and scrolls then pop in the freezer for quick lunch food.
Get the kids to help you make their lunches. Research has proven that kids get more excited about food they help prepare.
