Instead of buying ready-made snacks, try making some fresh mini-feasts for the kids this term - or get them to bake a batch for themselves. You can make enough to last a good few days (if they can stop themselves pinching), so these tasty little school lunch ideas are just the thing for putting a smile on their faces throughout the week. Please always check your school’s packed lunch policy before adding something new to your menu.

Government Packed lunch Advice

Treats are great, but it’s important to keep things balanced in your children’s diet. Here are some key points from the UK Government’s packed lunch guidance:

  • One portion of fruit and one portion of vegetable or salad every day to be included in packed lunches
  • A dairy food, such as semi-skimmed or skimmed milk, cheese, yoghurt, fromage frais or custard should be included every day
  • Include only water, still or sparkling, fruit juice, semi-skimmed or skimmed milk, yoghurt or milk drinks and smoothies
