Packing a healthy lunchbox is so easy with these easy peasy lunchbox ideas.
Get ready for the week with these healthy and easy kids lunchbox ideas. Packing a healthy lunch is always an overwhelming task, especially for the picky eaters. The following are a few tried and tested lunchboxes I make for my kids. Hope you find them helpful!
Which lunchbox is used for kids lunchbox ideas?
I live in US, so I can only recommend products available here. I used a large lunchbots box here and I love it! Its dishwasher-safe and completely unbreakable, because my kids love throwing their backpack and lunch bag everywhere, we have broken a few plastic and glass boxes this way. So, please get a Lunchbots Large Trio Stainless Steel lunchbox and that will last for years.
These Sooji appe are done instantly in the mornings. I mix the sooji with yogurt and then get the kids ready. The batter is ready in 10 minutes soaking time and I just add whatever vegetables I can get ready in the next 5 minutes. These are so easy, my 10 year old can make them by herself with a little supervision.
If you don't have an appe pan, use a regular tawa and make uthappam(pancake) with the same batter. Animal forks are one more thing I add to the lunchboxes for a fun twist.
My kids love dosas anytime of the day. This steel cut oats dosa stay nice and soft in the lunchbox till lunchtime and they are super quick to pack up. I make the batter over the weekend, so packing dosas for lunch is my favorite thing! My daughter likes pairing the dosa up with a tangy mango pickle.
These lunchbox ideas are just an inspiration, use these ideas and make it your own as per your kids palate. One important thing we always discuss in my group is how the kids wont finish their lunchboxes. I will say its okay, trust me, I was(and still am!) a super worried mom when my kids wont eat their lunch. But, its totally okay!
Another important thing to consider when packing lunch is to include your kids when planning. I found that they eat better when they have a say in what goes in their lunchbox. I am clearly not a expert, this is what works for my kids 🙂
Good luck for the next week 🙂
