With the school holidays coming to a close, it’s time to start thinking about filling up those lunch boxes again! And to take the stress out of planning your little ones snacks and lunches, we’ve put together a list of easy back to school recipes!
If you’re looking for a recipe that is perfect for school and work lunches, then this Easy Egg & Bacon Pie should be at the top of your list. Make it the night before while you’re cooking dinner for a fuss-free option. You can also make this ahead of time and freeze in individual portions. It tastes just as yummy served cold, which makes it the perfect lunch box addition.
Make a big batch of this Peanut Butter Dip and send it along in a small sealable container in your child’s lunchbox (if your school allows nuts – otherwise keep it for an afternoon snack). Kids will love dipping fruit slices into this creamy, nutty dip!
For an easy and healthy snack, send along a few homemade pita bread chips. These make a much better alternative to packet chips! Oh and why not make a healthy hummus or roast capsicum dip to go with the pita chips.
For a savoury treat that’s sure to please even the fussiest of eaters, whip up a batch of Zucchini & Corn Muffins. Make them on the weekend and store in an airtight container for a quick and easy lunchbox snack. Or why not make a double batch and freeze in individual portions – just grab them out the night before and they’ll be defrosted by the morning!
ANZAC Biscuits would have to be one of the most popular (and simple) lunchbox snacks. Perfect for a midmorning treat – your little one is going to LOVE these biscuits. Best of all, they’ll take you no time at all to prepare. This recipe can easily be doubled or even tripled… depending on how many hungry kiddies you’re feeding!
Pikelets don’t just make for a very yummy breakfast… they’re also a great thing to pop into your child’s lunchbox. Add a smear of jam or butter, or leave as is. These are also perfect for an after school energy boost (without spoiling your child’s appetite for dinner!).
For a treat that will take you no time at all to whip up, these 3 Ingredient Rice Bubble and Marshmallow Bars are perfect (and far cheaper than buying LCM Bars too!).
