Four hacks to add fun (and veggies) to kids' lunchboxes

By Perfection.

Looking for achievable lunchbox ideas that will help you win over the toughest little food critics? Try these four, super quick and easy baby cucumber hacks.

1. Sushi sandwich

If your kids are already complaining about sandwiches, try a sushi-twist! Simply roll up a slice of bread with your kid’s favourite ingredients inside, such as cucumbers, ham and cheese, then slice them into bite sized pieces and pop into the lunchbox for your kids to devour. They’re gorgeous, sushi-looking bites that take no time to make.

2. No bun sliders

If you are looking for a gluten-free lunchbox idea that will fill their tummies too, why not try cute cucumbers sliders. Simply slice the cucumbers lengthways, being careful not to cut all the way through, and then stuff with your kiddies’ favourite fillings. Shredded chicken from the last night’s dinner, cheese or even dips like guacamole, all work well in these fun little sliders.

3. Happy and hydrated

If your kids come home with full water bottles and are too busy having fun to keep sipping during the day, try adding foods to their lunchbox that have a high water content so they can literally “eat their water”. Foods like watermelon, strawberries, cucumbers, and tomatoes are great for extra hydration.

4. No prep, no fuss:

Fun foods are a great way to get your kids to eat more of what’s good for them. Bite-sized veggies like cucumbers and snacking tomatoes are ideal for this. Simply slice and pop in their lunchbox for Crunch ‘n’ Sip or recess.
