When it comes to lunchboxes, the best options are the ones that are quick and easy to make and that keep the kids happy. I’ve put together this list of 24 savoury vegetarian lunchbox fillers kids will love.
When it comes to lunchtime, I try to pack in as many veggies as possible, and that’s where these awesome ideas come to help out. Because the more veggies you pack in at lunchtime, the less you have to worry about at dinner. And that’s a bonus. Because tired kids are reluctant to eat things they aren’t keen on.
The other benefit with filling up on vegetarian options at lunch is that they don ‘t need as much refrigeration as their meat-filled counterparts, which is a big bonus when we don’t have fridges in schools.
The peer pressure environment of school lunching also means kids will often (not always) eat what is in their lunchboxes.
