    With the 2018 school year underway, here are some healthy school lunch ideas to help get the inspiration flowing.

    Ideally a school lunch will contain a mix of protein and healthy carbohydrates. Think sushi rolls, home-made muesli bars and muffins and veggie sticks.

    Bake Mixes

    Biome stocks a lovely range of vegan and nut free bake mixes. These handy mixes contain all the good stuff, thoughtfully researched and easy to make.

    The Chewy Cacao Chip Muesli Bar Mix is a favourite with healthy vegan ingredients that don’t skimp on the yum factor.

    Containing oats which are high in fibre, essential fatty acids and vitamins that will fire up little bodies and brains for a day of awesome learning and play.

    Natural Cacao packs the chocolaty yum power as well as providing the highest plant-based source of iron. Cacao is also a super provider of antioxidants and magnesium (especially good for brains) as well as calcium. What’s not to love?

    Just add coconut oil and maple syrup and voila – you have muesli bars for a week or more of healthy lunchbox treats. Once made they will keep in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

    The stress-saving range also has muffin and cookie mixes.

    Raw Blend 8 in 1 Raw SlicerHealthy School Lunch Ideas

    This nifty contraption sounds a bit space-age but is actually a super handy way of producing healthy and fun snacks and meals.

    It is a multi-function spiraliser, mandolin slicer and citrus juicer. Perfect for making paleo vegetable and fruit noodles, curvy chips and twists. Made from BPA-free plastic, this device saves time to make healthy food with a ‘twist’ for extra lunchbox fun.

    If you have a fussy eater who thinks green = bad, a handy tip to make a spaghetti dish for an insulated lunch container is to peel a zucchini first so only the white part is visible. Spiralize for spaghetti and mix with a favourite topping for a healthy, filling lunch.
