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 includes cutting of veggies, packing of lunchbox and using pre-prepared slice and frittata.

Pre-preparing can be done the night before, simply keep in the fridge or freezer until ready to serve.
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!
- Leftover frittatas can be frozen for up to 3 months.
The Australian Dietary Guidelines recommend 200g per serve of yoghurt. Yoghurt tubs vary in size between 160 to 200g, so choose the size to suit your child.
Additional food safety note: After removing from the oven, cool the frittatas from 60°C to 21°C within 2 hours and from 21°C to 5°C within a further 4 hours.
