Alfie only started school a few weeks ago, but already I totally understand why mum’s groan at the mention of school lunches. Sure, I’ve been feeding him lunch since the day he was born, but suddenly this seems like a much different task now that’s he’s flown the nest and is a big school boy!
Finding healthy kid’s lunchbox recipe ideas that are nut free (to fit with his school’s policy) and sugar free (to fit with my health perspective) is a bit of a challenge. Plus, I’d like to be marginally creative and not simply serve up a cheese sambo every day of the week. So after a bit of hunting around, here’s 10 recipes that I’m adding to my lunchbox repertoire.
