I mentioned in one of my earliest posts that I was working on a list of foods to keep me inspired when thinking about what to put into Small Child’s lunchbox on a day to day basis. Today I finally got round to typing it up and I’m happy to say I’ve even worked out how to put it into PDF form so that you can print off a copy of it for yourself.
The idea is to have the list handy when you’re planning or preparing lunches (I’ve stuck mine on the fridge), so that when you are stuck for ideas you can refer to the list for inspiration, or just to jog your memory.
I’ve listed the foods in the four main categories recommended by the ‘Eatwell Plate’ (see my earlier post about this here), in order to help create a more balanced lunch. I will be aiming to get something from each food group into each lunchbox, most of the time!
To view the list, click this link or the image below to open the PDF file. It should open in a new window so you can download and print it.
This is by no means an exhaustive list; I expect to update it as new food ideas occur to me. If you see anything really obvious missing, or have suggestions for foods that could be added to the list, do please comment!
