Top Lunchbox tips! -#HartleysYourLunch Challenge

The new school term starts in under 4 weeks and its time I start planning. With Oliver starting school and having free meals, Jack having pack lunches and Arthur going playschool. The start of September is going to be really busy and I need to become more organised. I recently received some samples of Hartley’s Jelly and a fab lunchbox in exchange for sharing some lunchbox tips, so  I have come up with a few ideas and I think it may help us all!

Top 5 tips!

  • If you can prepare the lunch box the evening before. Sounds simple, but it can give you an extra 10 minutes at least in the morning.
  • Sandwiches do not have to be boring! Cookie cutters will liven up any sandwich, your little one will love to see their favourite shapes!
  • If you are packing anything in packets, open them before hand. Little ones may struggle to open packets/lids, once opened pop them into a small container with 1 easy open lid to keep freshness.
  • Wraps/Muffins and pasta make great alternatives to sandwiches!
  • Don’t forget your spoon! How else can you eat your yummy Hartley’s Jelly!13939396_10157203276175104_8836736069086046272_n
