It’s taken us a while but we’ve finally been able to move away from the kids wanting the same things every day for lunch but with this means we get the “Oh no not sandwiches again” and then my youngest going “But I HATE sliced bread” so we’ve partnered with Flora to give you some fantastic ideas I’ve been sending the kids off to school with this term so far as an alternative to sandwich.

Using simple ingredients that I know will fill them up for the day our build your own lunch is ideal for kids that like to have a little freedom and the nice thing is that you can add what ever you want to make it suitable for your kids. The best thing about this build your own lunch – we make it together the night before it takes a few extra minutes but it’s time spent one on one with each child and then they have had input into their lunch, improved on some of the food preparation skills and if they put anything in it they don’t like – well silly them!

  1. My son would love all the colours and variety of ingredients you’ve used, but mostly being in charge. Thanks for sharinng this idea 🙂

  2. What an absolutely brilliant idea. This will make the kids feel really ‘grownup’ too. Just what my two are looking for these days.

  3. What a great idea, I should get my so involved in his packed lunches as I think he’d like choosing what to take. I love your lunchbox with the little pot in the middle, I’m thinking my son would love one like that with a dip for veggie sticks.
