Healthy Lunchbox Ideas for kids. Rubbish free / nude food ideas

Lunch box ideas for kids – five days of healthy lunch box ideas (Week 1).

Finn started school in February which resulted in me being thrown into the world of lunch boxes. I had a little taster of this when he was at preschool, but now I am packing boxes five days a week.

I have been sharing a lot of his lunch boxes and have received a lot of positive feedback and questions on them. Parents are keen to find different, healthy ideas for their kids’ lunch boxes and so I am hoping that I can help in some way.


Each week I plan to share Finn’s lunch boxes and provide links to any recipes that I use.
