Five Things Friday: Healthy Packed Lunches

Packed lunches are the bane of my life.  When we’ve finished getting the kids to bed, it’s the last thing I want to do, but I have to get them done in the evenings as we never have enough time in the mornings.  I find myself starting each new term with lovely ideas of exciting things to put in our lunch boxes but, by about the third week, I find myself returning to boring staples.  Here’s some inspiration for creating healthy packed lunches for your family to take to school or work.

  1. @mymunchbox has some great ideas and I love these lunchboxes with the little built in compartments.  I’d be interested to know if these were sealed in some way to stop them mixing.

2. @the_artful_foodie has some beautiful photos on her account, many of which could be adapted to be packed for lunch.

3.  @tracylovescake1_sw has lots of great food ideas which are linked to Slimming World points.

4. @momandmonster  has these creative lunches – I don’t think I’d have the patience to make them though!

5.  At this time of year, my favourite lunch is soup that I can heat up at work.  @the_nutritionistt shares this infographic for the perfect soup.


What’s your favourite lunch to pack to take to work?
