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 making wrap, using pre-prepared fritters and packing lunchbox.

Lunchbox combination

* See recipes for full list of ingredients and preparation.

  1. Pre-prepare zucchini and corn fritters (can be done the night before, simply keep in the fridge or freezer until ready to serve).
  2. Prepare pesto chicken wrap and place in sandwich container or baking paper.
  3. Pack lunchbox with fritters, wrap and banana.

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

  • This recipe is for 1 wrap. Consider making 2 if you have an older child or teenager.
  • Change the taste by using a different type of wrap (e.g. pita, mountain or lavash bread).
  • Add more fresh seasonal vegetables such as corn kernels (drained), avocado slices.
  • Replace chicken with another meat or omit for a vegetarian option.
  • Add 2 tablespoons grated reduced-fat cheese and toast in a sandwich maker until crisp and brown.
  • Optional: sprouts have been included but omit if not to taste (also note Food Safety considerations when using**).

**Food Safety Australia New Zealand considers that high risk foods include ready-to-eat, minimally-processed fruits and vegetables; fresh leafy green vegetables; melons; berries; and sprouts.
