Lunchbox Ideas with The Cheeseman

Every lunchbox should include dairy as well as fruit, vegetables, wholegrains and protein. Here are some easy ways to incorporate the five food groups:

  • Sandwich dried apricots together with spreadable cream cheese
  • Cut the crusts off a slice of bread, and top with sliced ham and a cheese stick, roll up firmly to create fun Cheesy Roll Arounds
  • Cook a little extra dinner the night before and save for lunch the next day. Pasta salad, quiche and homemade pizza slices are just a few examples that are delicious cold for lunch
  • Pop a small container of your child’s favourite dairy dip such as cheese & onion, smoked salmon, or tzatziki with vegetable sticks in their lunchbox
  • Sweet dips can also make a delicious treat! Pop cream cheese in a container and sprinkle with cinnamon and honey, delicious for kids to dip crisp apple wedges or fingers of banana into
  • Jumping beans pasta salad: Toss a simple tuna and pasta or potato salad with this simple and delicious dressing: ¼ cup natural yogurt, 2 teaspoons mayonnaise and 2 tablespoons pizza sauce
  • Pop a few cubes of mozzarella or gouda cheese in a container with sticks of your child’s favourite veggies for an energy boosting snack pack
  • Mix up sweet and savoury! Pop some cubes of cheddar in with some grapes and popcorn, sultanas and pretzels.
