The lovely people at Innocent Drinks sent us a lunchbox filled with innocent goodies, which my girls loved, and some stickers to customise the lunchbox. and fill with a typical lunch that my daughters take to school. My youngest daughter immediately claimed it as hers and loves it.
She decorated it all by herself, including writing her name on it. Here is her finished masterpiece:
As you can see, she is very proud of it:
Here she is talking about her new lunchbox, please excuse the poor quality sound - it was filmed on my cheap mobile phone:
Here's what was in her lunchbox the next day:
There was an Innocent Squeezie and also some Innocent Juicy Water, a cheese and ham spiral, cucumber, carrots, tomato and a small piece of banana cake.
I've written a post with pearls of wisdom from our household about packed lunches, have a read and feel free to comment with more suggestions and tips.
Here's the recipe for the Cheese and Ham Spirals, you can vary the filling, cheese and vegemite also works rather well:
Cheese and Ham Spirals
chopped or shredded ham
300g (2 cups) self-raising flour, and extra for dusting
50g butter, finely chopped
180ml (3/4 cup) milk
80ml (1/3 cup) tomato chutney or pasta sauce
3/4 cup (90g) grated cheddar
Preheat oven to 180°C. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
Cool on a rack then wrap how you like and pack into lunchboxes or freeze for later.
