Halloween was the ideal excuse to create a spooky themed lunch. Coffin shaped sandwiches, white chocolate coated strawberry ghosts and a few extras thrown in too.
If you don't have the time to decorate sandwiches with smiley faces or slice things into animal shapes varying the contents of their lunchbox will keep them interested. Instead of a ham roll daily offer tubs of salad, pasta, cous cous or rice, change the fillings and instead of bread use rolls, tortillas and pittas.
I give the Mini Mes two fruit each day in their lunchboxes but that varies from an apple and box of raisins to strawberries, grapes, pear, satsumas etc. The same goes with the rest, different flavour yogurts, different cakes and bakes will all make meal time more fun and help to prevent them bringing it all home uneaten.
Do you make food fun for your kids?
