Yes I hear the groan. You need something nice for your darlings lunch box as you can’t give them sandwiches every day. Social media shows you these beautiful presented and packed lunch boxes and I always think, really? What a waste of food.
Some realistic ideas are:
I use this Quick and Easy Muffin Recipe for the boys lunches, freeze them and then just pop them in the lunch box. They defrost on the way. You can even freeze them cut in half and then add butter/cheese/ham etc. in the morning.
This particular recipe I use to use to make tiny snack muffins when the boys where small for snacks during the day.
My 3 year said ‘I don’t like that’ when I was mixing them, but his hand was the first to grab them sneakily when they were sitting on the counter cooling.
Easy and not too time consuming. Majority of people have these ingredients at home. And it is easy to make while you are doing dinner. Maybe even the old children can make them while you are cooking dinner. Let me know how they turn out.
