Is it just me or is it hard to keep coming up with new ideas for the lunchbox?

I struggle to keep coming up with new ideas that get eaten during the day so I have assembled a list of a few ideas that my children like that I know I can always include and that they will eat.

Of course I had some fabulous, grand ideas about far more fancy things to bake and put in their lunch boxes, but they often came home.  Hence why this list is not as long as it used to be when I had all my fancy ideas that I thought they would enjoy, it turns out that the fancier I got, the less they ate, so despite my creativity feeling a little disheartened and deflated, we went back to basics!

I have collated a few basic ideas for you to print out and stick to your pantry door to inspire you come lunchbox time and you are feeling a little stuck!

Salad wrap, Banana Bread Muffin (recipe found in Recipes category of this blog), pretzel sticks, mandarin segments (peeled to make life easier and allow more time for play and less mess!), popcorn popped in coconut oil, and a muesli bar.
