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 packing of lunchbox, using pre-prepared foods.

Lunchbox combination

* See recipe for full list of ingredients and preparation. 

  1. When serving up dinner, place 500g of the salad into a sealed container and keep in the fridge until the next day (increase serve for older children).
  2. Pre-prepare the Fruity muffin and place into container.
  3. Cut honeydew melon and place in container.


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!


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.

Please refer to food safety information to be aware of when handling and storing melon and the other high risk foods.
