Turn your Ham into a Bow using a Ham Cutter 🙂
Pop your piece of ham on a chopping board.
Push down with the cutter
then fold the top slightly down so you can wrap the long bit around the middle.

Don’t forget to check out our facebook page for up to date lunchbox ideas!
Whether it is your child’s first year at Kindy or last year of High School.
Creating healthy school lunches is the key to sustaining their body to get through the day!
- Write a list of each child’s favourite sandwich topping, fruit,
vegetables and snacks. – Use our free Printables for Fruit, Veges, Dairy, Carbs and Protein ideas.
- Pre-cut fruit and vegetables and pop them in airtight containers in the fridge the night before.
- A small container of cubes of cheese, a container of watermelon cubes, strawberries or slices of carrots would be great to bring to school for crunch and sip, fruit time or morning tea.
- Dip fruit like apples and bananas in citrus juice (lemon or orange juice) or soda water to prevent browning.
- Bake in bulk (when you have some spare time) and freeze savoury and sweet muffins, scrolls, pikelets, scones for quick lunchbox snacks.
- Chill cooked foods (like hard boiled eggs) before packing the lunchbox.
- Pack leftovers straight into the lunchbox the night before. (corn cobs, pasta).
- Cut food into appropriate bite size pieces to encourage maximum food is eaten in limited time.
- Put the lunchbox inside an insulated lunch bag that will hold an ice pack and lunch box, to keep everything cool for several hours.
- Choose an easy to open but leak proof water bottle. In summer months add ice cubes or freeze and wrap in a tea towel.
- Try to avoid sending junk food in packets, these processed foods are not good for growing children and create a lot of rubbish in the school grounds.
