I find a lot of the things I use can easily be found in any of the regular pound and discount stores. Next time you are shopping, look out for the following:
These are fab because they can be used to pop snacks in or separate lunchboxes. You can get the regular paper ones but I love the silicon ones, especially if im putting something like coleslaw or cous cous in b’s lunchbox.
Cocktail sticks/food picks
These are handy for lunches and can entice little b to eat up his veggies. I often find them in the party section and they are sometimes sold as a set with cupcake cases. We keep a whole selection of these to hand 🙂
Ice cube trays
Useful for freezing yogurt for a healthier alternative to ice cream – I find they do not work well for jelly :/
Ideal for cutting sandwiches, fruit and veggies into fun shapes. Fruity flowers anyone?!
You can pick up soooo many food containers in the pound shops. Regular Tupperware style or fun lunchboxes like these ones. I find they are ideal for then using silicon cupcake cases to hold various food items.
So there you go, a few tips and tricks for making fun lunchboxes. And it doesn’t have to take an age either. Trust me, I hate faffing on!
