Wondering what lunches to pack your kids their first week back to school? Read this article for 4 easy and exciting lunch ideas.
My littles are back to school next week and I'm packing them special treats in their lunchboxes to celebrate!
I've chosen fun and colourful gummy bears, worms and jelly beans from Surf Sweets Organic Candies as their special treat because they're made with organic natural sweeteners and fruit juice and made without synthetic colours, and flavours.
They're also made in facility free of nuts and the top 10 food allergens which makes them the perfect sweet treat to pack for school!
I love packing chicken nuggets because they're easy to make and always a hit with my kids. I serve them with fresh sweet corn (cut into rounds for easy eating), juicy orange quarters, cucumber slices, and waffle pretzels.
** Note: I pack chicken nuggets cold but you can serve them hot in a thermos. I recommend lining the thermos with a paper towel first to keep the nuggets from getting soggy.
My kids love pizza but because a slice of pizza is difficult to fit in a lunchbox I've started making pizza roll-ups! These can be made with leftover pizza or you can make them from scratch using naan bread (recipe below).
They hardly take up any room in the lunch box which means you can fill the rest of the compartments with fresh colourful fruits & veggies and a Surf Sweets Gummy Worm for a super fun and special treat!
Spread Pizza sauce on naan bread. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Warm in the oven until cheese melts. Let cool slightly then roll tightly into a cylinder shape and cut into bite size pieces.
I love packing food my kids can eat with their hands! Here I've packed jumbo tortellini (no fork, no sauce, no mess) with baby carrots (no washing, no cutting), fresh grapes, berries and these colourful Surf Sweets Organic jelly beans!
These jelly beans are SO YUMMY because they're drenched with fruit flavour, and made with organic cane sugar and organic fruit juice.
Hummus is an easy, healthy food to pack for lunch! I serve it with a variety of veggies and pretzels for dipping, fresh fruit, cubed cheese and one or two tangy and sweet Surf Sweets Sour Worms.
These super fun sour worms are made with organic fruit juice, contain no artificial colours or flavours.
** Tip: Mix fruits & veggies together to create a fun rainbow of colour.
