Are you on a lookout for new, tasty, fun and interesting lunch box ideas for your kid, but ones that won’t cost you a lot of money to make? You’re on the right place. We are offering you some ideas for great recipes that you can make and not spend a lot of money.

1. Rainbow Wraps

What you’ll need:

  • Halved chargrilled capsicum, 90g
  • Herb and spinach wraps, 4
  • Drained, sliced beetroot, 225g
  • Baby spinach, 50g
  • Sliced fetta, 60g
  • Grated carrot, 1

Dry the beetroot with a paper towel to remove moisture. Put one wrap on a flat top. Put ¼ spinach, beetroot, capsicum, feta and carrot on it. Season it with pepper and salt. Then roll the wrap and fold the ends so that the filling doesn’t fall out. Cut the wrap in half and wrap it in a plastic wrap. Do the same with the rest of the ingredients. You can store the wraps in an airtight container and take them out as you need.

2. Rolls with chicken sausage

What you’ll need:

  • Whisked egg
  • Grated lemon rind, 1 tablespoon
  • Grated zucchini, 1
  • Chopped fresh parsley, ¼ cup
  • Torn wholemeal bread, 2 slices
  • Chopped garlic clove, 1
  • Olive oil, 2 tablespoons
  • Partially thawed and halved pastry, 3 sheets
  • Fresh chives, chopped, 2 tablespoons
  • Chopped brown onion, 1
  • Sesame seeds, 1 tablespoon
  • Lemon juice, 1 tablespoon

For the herb sauce:

  • Fresh mint, chopped, 2 tablespoons,
  • Lemon juice, 1 tablespoon
  • Peeled garlic  clove, 1
  • Fresh chives, chopped, 2 tablespoons
  • Fresh, chopped parsley, 2 tablespoons
  • Natural yoghurt, 200g

For the sauce, put all of the ingredients into a food processor and mix them together to combine them.

Over low heat, heat the oil in a pan. Cook the garlic and the onion for 10 minutes stirring them from time to time. Once they get soft, leave them to cool. Process the bread to turn it into bread crumbs. Put them into a bowl. Then process the chicken. Add the zucchini, rind, lemon juice, onion mixture, herbs and chic ken to the bread crumbs, season them and mix them together until combined. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Put 1/6 of the mixture with chicken onto each piece of pastry. Brush their edges with water and then fold over the fill in, pressing it so that it gets sealed. Turn them over and brush with egg and add sesame seeds. Cut every pastry into 6 pieces and place on trays. Bake them for around 25 minutes and then you can put them in your kid’s lunch box, together with the sauce you made previously.
