These lunchboxes are made for primary-aged children. For other ages and appetites simply increase or decrease servings of the main lunchbox item and add in a few more snacks to help silence rumbly tummies!

Please note: Prep time is for filling the lunchbox combo (using pre-prepared food)

Lunchbox combination

* See recipe for full list of ingredients and preparation.

  1. Prepare tropical pizza the night before or use last night’s left overs and place in container.
  2. Pre-prepare pear and banana muffin (can be done the night before, simply keep in the fridge or freezer until ready to serve).
  3. Cut apple into slices (squeeze juice from ¼ lemon over cut up fruit to keep fresh and stop it from browning during the day) or leave whole
  4. Pack lunchbox with pizza slices, muffin and apple.

Hints:

Team lunches with a drink that can easily freeze or keep cold. Some ideas include:

  • A bottle of water.
  • A bottle of water with ice cubes or frozen fruit ice cubes for flavour.
  • Occasionally, add a small flavoured milk or 100% fruit juice.

Some fruit and vegetables are not available all year – check out the seasonal calendar to see what fruit is in season right now and substitute as needed!

Alternatives

Food safety note: After removing from the oven, cool the pizzas from 60°C to 21°C within 2 hours and from 21°C to 5°C within a further 4 hours.

  • Quick chicken pizza.
  • Top with sliced onion, cooked red kidney beans, mushrooms, olives, cooked sliced potato and rosemary and top with cubes of reduced-salt feta cheese.
