Which lunch would your child choose? Let me know in the comments below??
Here are my top four favourite lunches to pack Abi because they're easy to make and... delicious! Just add some colourful sides to each and Voila! Lunch is served :)
Check out my time-saving prep tips for each lunch below:
?? Pasta Salad
I always have cooked pasta noodles in my fridge. When I want to send them to school for lunch, I add my kids favourite veggies and toss in olive oil, grated parmesan, salt & pepper.
?? Lentil Soup
This is a lunchtime favourite especially during the cooler months. It's also the one meal I can make for dinner AND serve as leftovers for lunch the next day.
Because the lentils will continue to absorb the liquids overnight, I suggest separating them from the broth before storing. Simply combine them back together the next day, reheat and pack in a thermos for lunch!
?? Fried Egg Croissant
I store croissants in the freezer to keep them fresh. When I’m ready to use one I remove it from the freezer and make the sandwich on the frozen croissant. It will defrost by lunch AND keep lunch cool throughout the day.
?? French Toast
I love packing French toast for lunch because I can make it the night before and send it to school cold the next day. I cut the toast into sticks so the kids can eat with their hands and easily dip the toast into their honey or maple syrup (a must).
