Lunches from the last couple of days…

Well school went back today and Marlee was excited to go back which was great. I must say I do operate better having routine of the daily school drop off and pick ups and having to get things done between those times. I really did enjoy the time off with the kids and at the same time found it challenging being out of routine.  

As you can see with the kids lunchboxes below, I have packed quite similar lunches for the kids the past couple of days and ready for tomorrow as well. I am all about using up leftovers and sticking with things that work as well. Marlee’s lunchbox came back empty today and I’m not sure if it’s because she loves her new design Yumbox or if she was just hungry. It does seem to fit a lot more food then the last design of the original which is great and the fact it is leakproof is awesome! I highly recommend them along with the other lunchboxes I use as well. They all have varying qualities and have different benefits of using each one. 


Inside the above Panino Yumbox lunchbox is: grated carrot, capsicum, sugar free pikelet with butter, plain homemade popcorn, grated cheese and homemade zucchini slice. 


In the above Lunchbots lunchbox is capsicum, two slices of homemade zucchini slice, tomato sauce for dipping in the kids konserve pot,  cheese and Vegemite on mountain bread wraps and a sugar free pikelet with butter. 

In the two Yumbox lunchboxes are cheese and Vegemite on mountain bread wraps, plain homemade popcorn, capsicum and grated cheese. The two easy lunchboxes are packed with sugar free pikelets with butter, grated carrot, cheese and Vegemite on mountain bread wraps, plain home cooked popcorn and grated cheese. 

For my family and I, I am all about keeping the food simple, fresh and mainly whole foods. I am aiming to cut out processed food from my kids and my diet as the more whole foods they eat without preservatives and additives the better! I also believe fresh is best and I still give them ‘treats’ along the way as well. 

Lunch for today 10.02.2015

Marlee is so excited about her brand new lunchbox we got sent in the mail by Little Linky to use. At my daughters school they put their lunchboxes in their bags after second lunch and any leftover food needs to be thrown out. Well I won’t need to worry anymore as we have a fridge to go insulated lunch bag, a new lunchbots lunchbox to fit inside with a small metal container to go inside as well. How awesome!!! Oh and we also got a ecococoon water bottle.

Packed inside is- leftover Panko crumbed lamb chop, capsicum sticks, processed sugar free banana bread with butter, pork crackling in her little container inside as a treat, a cheese and Vegemite wrap cut up and an apple cored using cookie cutters after thinly slicing them and soaking them in salty water to stop browning. Marlee is so excited to take her new bag, she gave me the biggest hug when I showed her the goodies and said thank you mum you’re the best mum ever! How sweet, and I am not the one to thank at all. Little Linky is the one to thank for these!

Oh and I checked too that Marlee’s easy lunchboxes fit as well so now I can rotate them! Yay!


I am feeling very blessed at the moment that businesses are sending me products for free to use and try for my kids. I appreciate it so much and it is definitely making it hard to choose which one I like the best as they are all great for different reasons. So thank you to Little Linky and all of the other businesses who send me products to review or just as a gift, you all rock!!
