20 Sandwichless School Lunchbox Recipes


The school holidays are winding up fast which means if you are the parent of a school aged child your mind will soon be completely and utterly preoccupied with solving the ancient mystery of what to put in your childrens’ school lunchboxes that they will actually eat and won’t come home mildly decomposed and a lot smelly and very gag inducing.  God help you if you forget it at the end of the day and it remains in the back of a hot, sweaty car for a day or two.  God help you indeed….

Sandwiches have long been a staple of school lunchboxes but it would seem the humble (and easy!) sandwich has had its day lately.  

As parents of school aged kids ourselves here at MamaBake HQ, needless to say, we are huge fans of a school lunchbox that does not contain leftover sweaty, mashed up sandwiches and we reckon you are too!  So, here, have this: our latest compilation of sandwichless school lunchbox recipes ideas for the new term coming up.

Have we missed anything?  Got any good ideas you’d care to share?  Send us your recipe and if it gets published you will receive a FREE membership to our Once-A-Week Cooking Club!
