Our Top School Packed Lunch Ideas

Is your child starting school next week, and will they be taking a packed lunch? We’ve got you covered!

If you’ve never had to put together a packed lunch (I was mostly school dinners so I’m not all that familiar with packed lunches), and you’re unsure what to pack for your little one, the mummies and daddies in our online community are full of helpful suggestions. We did a poll over in our Facebook group to check out what the most popular packed lunch items are.

The poll results – the top scoring packed school lunch food items:

  • Sandwiches
  • Yoghurts
  • Banana
  • Apple
  • Crisps
  • Crackers
  • Cheese
  • Raisins
  • Sausage roll
  • Wraps
  • Pasta pots
  • Grapes
  • Pineapple sticks
  • Strawberries
