More planetbox lunches

These are packed ready for tomorrow.

Mine ...

Orange segments (in big dipper), more of that yummy chicken pasta salad, strawberries and blueberries, vegie sticks (with hommus in the little dipper), almonds, dried apricots and peanuts

Miss E's school provides lunch. But she will be home tomorrow

These are the magnets she picked ...

And her lunch

Caterpillars (celery with peanut butter and sultanas), dried apricots, cherry roma tomatoes, chicken drumstick with brown rice, strawberries and blueberries and a few choc dots in the teeny tiny middle tray for fun. And oranges in the big dipper for a vitamin c boost to chase her cold away ...


  1. Hi Kath I am new to comment but have been reading along for awhile, these look like great containers. Wo wyour food looks so healthy, Really got me thinking about my food, I have lost 30kgs with about 40 to go this has really inspried me to look at more natural foods. Thanks. Now can we get the reciepe for the chicken pasta looks amazing. Jill

  2. Hi Jill! Welcome ! Thanks for the comment! Sure can post the recipe ... it is EASY PEASY!!!!! Congrats on the weight loss. I struggle with this myself. We do eat pretty well (hubby is a dietitian) but the treats are my downfall. I'm hoping preplanning my food like this will help.

    I'll post the recipe this afternoon

  3. What do you mean the school provides E's lunch? I have never heard of that in Australia! What do they eat?

  4. Sandi - it's a private school. For morning tea they get sandwiches and fruit platters. For lunch they get things like chicken drumsticks, taco bar, pasta bar, lasagne, cottage pies, beef and vege pie. Whatever the lunch dish is they also have a salad bar to choose from. The school has borders so I guess it is easier to cater for everyone. Plus they put a high emphasis on learning how to eat politely, make conversation etc.

    Parents then pack a snack for afternoon tea.

    Most times I love it, but sometimes I wish we packed our own lunches - then you know exactly what goes into it.

  5. I knew she went private, but wow! That's impressive! Mine are going to Christian private, but they wont even have a canteen (which is usually a good thing, but in emergencies it is nice to have something to fall back on)
