Pack the kids off with a tasty, balanced lunch every day of the week. Here's some inspo to get you started...
mini meatballs in pitta breads
Mini koftes are a great way of spicing up lunchboxes. Fill a pitta with salad, koftes and a little mayo and you're onto a winner. You can use this meatball mixture to make mini meatloaves in a muffin tin too. Batch-cook and freeze!
kidney bean burgers
These veggie burgers are just as good cold as they are hot - making them perfect for lunchboxes! Serve with a dollop of guacamole or mashed avocado - just make sure to mix in a little melon or lime juice to stop the avocado going brown over time.
Tzatziki dip with carrot batons
Colourful and crunchy, this tasty snack will give them something to look forward to come lunchtime. Taking just 5 minutes to make from scratch, this creamy dip is a fantastic, lower-fat alternative to houmous.
Coronation chicken dippers with mango sauce
This flavour-packed baked chicken lunchbox is bursting with colour and fruity flavour thanks to the mango ad sweet chilli drip. For older kids, use this to make a burrito using a wrap - add salad leaves, cherry tomatoes and salsa to make it more substantial.
