Recently I shared my recipe for Quinoa Tabbouleh as part of a “get out of your lunch rut” recipe round-up. I created the recipe as an alternative to the sandwiches I normally take to work and after I shared the recipe I was asked if I had any options for kids lunchboxes. So I turned to some of my favourite kids bloggers and recipe sites and have curated a list of 10 recipes for sandwich free lunches.
There’s plenty of variety that I hope will suit lots of little taste buds and none of the recipes are that complicated that you can’t add in more vegetables if you like, or swap out ingredients for ones your kids prefer. Many of the recipes are also perfect for getting your kids in the kitchen to help – which is a great motivator for getting kids excited about eating the food they have prepared.
But just between you and me, I actually like a lot of these recipes for MY lunchbox, so there’s no judgement here if you pack some of these lunches in your work lunchbox too 😉
