Toddler Packed lunch

I am currently attempting to get my daughter to eat a ‘balanced diet’. This is the reason I bought the Yumbox as it has many compartments; this means that I can provide her with a portion of protein, carbohydrates, dairy, fruit, veg and sometimes a small treat. Whether she eats it all is another matter but this week she did.

Here are some ideas for your toddler packed lunches that I have used so far, choose one from each section:

Protein:

  • boiled egg
  • grilled chicken

Carbohydrates/grains:

  • wholewheat pesto pasta
  • cheese straw made with puff pastry and cheese.
  • cracker and cheese
  • grated carrot and humous wrap
  • tuna sandwich

Fruit:

  • grapefruit pieces
  • strawberries and blueberries
  • satsuma pieces

Veg:

  • grated carrot and olives
  • broccoli and cheese mini muffin
  • greek salad
  • cucumber and tomato

Dairy:

  • Yoghurt coated raisins
  • sour cream dip for the cheese straw.
  • Full fat natural Greek yoghurt and blueberries
  • feta cheese

It’s not always easy to hit every food type but I’m trying to find something she likes from each section.
