School lunches: they're no picnic.
Not when you consider that every lunchbox needs to be packed full of healthy, nutritious food with enough energy to provide fuel for a whole action-filled day of learning and playing. There's a jungle of fabulous food options out there but when time's short how do you keep coming up with tasty, new ideas to tempt young tastebuds?
At 1Seven we know that packing school lunches is no easy task so we sent out three young adventurers, Netta, Marko and Flash, on a Stupendous Lunchbox Safari to search out fresh new ideas to make packing lunchboxes easier for parents and kids.
Follow them as they criss-cross the globe discovering the secrets of the world's great cuisines to bring back fantastic, easy-to-make recipes for every day of the week and you could be:
… munching Magnificent Mexican food on Mondays. Just think of it, brilliant burritos, tasty tacos, sublime sals.
… topping up your tanks on Tuesdays with Marvellous Middle Eastern food. Couscous makes for a great lunch, just don't forget the water bottle, okay, it can get hot out there.
… wildly wolfing down rice paper rolls on Wednesdays. Any one for Vibrant Vietnamese ?
…packing in the pasta on Thursdays. There's nothing like Inspiring Italian food to get you excited about lunch.
…and not to forget the Awesome Aussie sandwich for Fridays. There's nothing like fresh fruit and great produce to get those taste buds singing.
It's a round-the-world eating adventure in a lunchbox!
And just to make sure you don't lose your way, we've included our Indispensable Lunchbox Guide so you know what to put in, what to leave out, and how to pack it all perfectly.
