School Lunch Ideas – Cheese and Sweetcorn Muffins

It is no secret that I love making packed lunches for my kids, I think I must be in a minority! I’m able to make fun and healthy lunches by being organised and preparing a few things in advance. These cheese and sweetcorn muffins are great for their lunch boxes and can be frozen. I prepare the lunch before I go to bed so I’m not rushing around in the morning, the muffins defrost over night in the fridge so they will ready to eat by lunch time the next day.

Flower Lunch Box Ideas

I have been posting pictures of my 3 year old daughter’s packed lunches on my Facebook page for quite a while but I have never put them on my blog so here is one!

When she first started nursery, she had their cooked meals but after a few weeks it came apparent that she wasn’t enjoying them. So she has been having packed lunches ever since!

I don’t have any fancy equipment, just a few cookie cutters, eye picks and plastic pots. All of the lunches take under 10 minute and just me a bit of creativity and imagination! I also try and make them cheap and keep waste to a minimum. They include stuff she likes (she changes her mind everyday!) and at least one thing she either hasn’t tried or isn’t that keen on.

This lunch was inspired by the biscuits she made the day before and insisted to have it for lunch at school to show all her friends.

  • Ham and cheese sandwich
  • Pepperoni
  • Kiwi fruit
  • Homemade jam biscuit
