Here are some easy, healthy packed lunches for both you and the kids, which AREN’T sandwiches!
A wrap without a wrap? It’s possible! Use some sliced turkey, ham, or roast beef as the wrap, and fill it with some cheese, cream cheese, lettuce… anything you fancy!
Pasta salad is so versatile – you can add anything you like and make it a healthy lunch option. You should over boil the pasta a little when eating the next day to keep it nice and soft. Options such as tuna, peppers, tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, pine nuts, pesto and spinach are all healthy, tasty pasta salad options!
Cut bread (or bagel, pita or croissant) into eight square pieces. Spread with butter, cream cheese or pesto for some flavour. Get a long skewer and fill with the piece of bread and then choose from the following options to make a sandwich kebab: meat, cheese, pepper, tomato, cucumber, lettuce, repeating ingredients and then end with a piece of bread!
