Lunchtimes are a bit all over the place for us. Rachel has school dinners during the week at the moment, Jack has packed lunches with the child minder on a number of days and hubby and I are often at work.

We always try to include a bit of variety in terms of the items we include, but we tend to make sure that there is one item from each of 4 different subheadings.
They are sandwich, fruit, dairy and treat.
I tend not to overload the childrens’ lunches as they are not massive eaters and I don’t like to waste food.
