What?! Back to school…already?! Healthy School lunchbox ideas for you.

The end of school holidays! I can hear a lot of relieved mums and kids out there itching to get back into routine. For me it’s time off work, no stress, most importantly lots of play time with my boys, trips to the Coast, fun in the sun – I love Summer holidays! But, sadly it’s time to get back into routine and start talking school (and work!) lunches.

HNC Mini fritattas

Love eggs! Wish I had chickens, but I don’t at the moment. Eggs are a great source of protein, have vitamins and minerals and healthy omega 3 fats. I always try and have boiled eggs on hand as a quick and easy snack in the afternoon, or to add to a green salad to take to work. lunchbox

 

Mini fritatta’s are a great way to add some quality protein to your child’s lunchbox, and a way to sneak in some … Continue reading

HNC Blueberry pikelets

This is a recipe from the good ol’ days, my childhood. Mum always used to make us pikelets, and we would often take them to school for morning tea. They are easy to make, much better than store bought alternatives (full of sugar and additives) and you can sneak some fruit into them too!

Simple HNC Hummus

Once you start making your own dips, you’ll never go back! They taste so much better, full of flavour that you get to control, no additives or preservatives, and no nasty canola oil.

HNC Seedy Bliss Ball

I have come to love a good bliss ball. Easy to throw together, great to grab with a cuppa. Am sure the kids will love them too. These are a nut free version, so suitable for school snacks or for those with a nut allergy. They are high in energy and natural sweeteners – so try and stick to just one!

Layered Mango Chia Pudding

Chia puddings are so versatile. You can always come up with different flavour combinations, depending on the fruit in season.

At the moment, it’s mango season, and I’m loving it! One of my favourite fruits. Chia puddings are a nutritious, whole foods breakfast that you can easily prepare the night before, and they last well in the fridge for about three days. Put them in a jar with a lid and you can grab it on the run! But, try … Continue reading
