TRTLMT Back To School & Lunchbox Guide 2015

Thank you for downloading our back to school guide!

Lunchboxes are something I get quite excited about. I don’t know why but it is something I get a kick out of. Crazy I know. Maybe I’ll change my mind when I have two at full time school in February 2015. I can appreciate that lunchbox ideas are often hard. We end up repeating the same thing day in and day out, not that children mind all that much I’ve found. It’s always good to add some variety though. I’ve created this little booklet for you to make lunchbox filling just that little bit more easy but also fun and to encourage children being involved in the process. This booklet has a broad selection of ideas. They will not suit everyone, allergies and eating styles. These are just popular ideas and recipes in my home and on the blog. Included are a variety of printables that make lunchbox planning easy and organised as well as a few extra goodies to make it fun also. We also showcase some great businesses that sell fantastic items for back to school. Some you will have seen before as Im big supporters of their products but also some newly discovered gems. I hope you find this useful and it makes life that little bit easier.

Happy lunching!

TRTLMT Back To School & Lunchbox Guide 2015

Peta’s tips for easier lunchbox prep! 1.

A lot of schools now have exclusions on some food items such as eggs or nuts. Check with your school to ensure you pack a safe lunchbox for all (we all know how kiddies love to share their food).

2.

Involve the children in planning their lunchboxes. They will be much more likely to eat what is in it if they have had ownership over it (and no I don’t mean letting them pick lollies and chips only). Use our lunchbox planners to help with this process.

3.

Ensure the lunchbox and drink bottle are age appropriate and easy to use. Nobody wants to battle a hard to open clip when hungry (or hangry in my case!).

4.

Pack lunchboxes the night ahead if possible. This saves time in the morning if you know you will be in a rush. I often will pack the night before and then in the morning just add the last minute pantry items that would go soggy if placed into the fridge.

5.

Prepare ahead wherever possible. Sandwiches with fillings such as cheese and ham, jam, nut butters, vegemite and cheese freeze very well. If space allows, make up enough sandwiches at the beginning of the week and freeze in freezer safe sandwich containers or zip lock bags. Simply pull out of the freezer and pop into the lunchbox to thaw. Frozen fruit such as orange quarters, grapes and bananas also keep the lunchbox cool and are great prepare ahead snacks.

6.

Lunch doesn’t always mean sandwiches. Leftover chicken drumsticks, sausages, sausage rolls, meatballs, quiches and wraps all make great lunchbox additions. My kiddies enjoy these cold but if your school has a microwave even better!

Peta’s tips for easier lunchbox prep! cont... 7.

I say this all the time but bake in bulk and freeze. There are a variety of muffins, cakes and biscuits on the blog that are great for the freezer. I store them in ziplock bags or wrap in aluminium foil and cling film and place into a freezer safe container. You want to avoid freezer burn.

8.

Most vegetables and fruit do really well stored, cut up in containers for up to a week, particularly if you have a specific fridge container system. At the beginning of the week, chop up your fruit and vegetables in to bite size pieces and keep in individual containers that you can grab in the morning or in a large container and portion out as needed.

9.

Ensure you use ice bricks especially in warmer months to keep food fresh. A wet sponge frozen and placed in to a ziplock bag makes a great DIY ice brick. I love making frozen yoghurts and slushies, freeze them in reusuable pouches and pop into the lunch box. Even frozen muffins or slices of cake make great mini ice bricks and thaw in time for morning tea.

prevent apple or pears from browning once cut, cover with a little lemon juice. 10. To Or soak in little water that has a teaspoon of citric acid added to it. Drain and

pop into the lunchbox. Another great tip is cut the apple into quarters and remove the core. Place the apple together again so it looks whole and place a food safe rubber band around it.

11.

Make it fun! No one said lunch had to be boring. Include lots of colour, tastes and textures. There are some great businesses featured in this guide that sell amazing lunchbox goodies to make lunch that little bit more enjoyable.

Lunchbox Suggestions Utilise your freezer! Most Sundays I do a big cook up and prepare enough snacks for the weeks worth of lunchboxes or more. Things like cookie dough, cookies, muffins, pikelets, cakes, quiches, sausage rolls and meatballs to name a few can be easily frozen. You need to prevent freezer burn so make sure what you are storing is wrapped correctly. I will either use zip lock bags or wrap in a layer of cling wrap then aluminium foil. I then store them in a freezer safe container.

10g desiccated coconut

1 teaspoon honey

Instructions Place your first batch of ingredients (apple or pineapple) into the bowl. Blitz on speed 7 for approximately 30-60 seconds. Each batch will differ slightly in time due to texture and moisture in the fruit. The longer you blitz the better it mixes and combines. Stop and test the batch by rolling some in your hand. If it is too wet add a little extra coconut. If its too dry add a little extra honey or an extra date.I didn’t find I needed to with the amounts listed in the ingredients section but each dried fruit brand will differ slightly in texture and moisture. Roll into small balls and coat in desiccated coconut. Store in the fridge for up to a week or freeze.

Soft Fluffy Bread Rolls

Serves 7

Prep Time: 2 hr | Cook Time: 30 min | Total Time: 2 hr 30 min

Ingredients Dough 220g lukewarm water 375g bakers flour 1.5 teaspoons yeast 1 teaspoon of salt 1.5 teaspoons of bread improver

Optional Milk or egg, lightly beaten Sesame seeds

Instructions Add the ingredients in this order: water, yeast, flour, improver, salt. Blitz on speed 7 for 10 seconds to roughly combine. Knead for 6 mins. Remove dough and place into a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with cling film and place into a warm spot. I use the front seat of my car or a warmed oven.

Place them onto a lined tin in a flower formation (one roll in the middle and 6 around it) ensuring they slightly touch. Brush with a little milk or egg wash and sesame seeds. Allow to rise until almost doubled in size. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Bake for approx 30-40 minutes.

Remove dough and place into a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with cling film and place into a warm spot. I use the front seat of my car or a warmed oven. Leave this to rise for approximately an hour or until doubled. Remove dough from bowl, knock out the air by shaping your dough into a loaf shape. Combine coating seeds on a plate and roll your dough in them. Place the dough in to a bread tin and sprinkle over any remaining seeds from the plate. Allow to rise for another 30-45 minutes in the tin. Due to the seeds, the second rise needs to be a little longer than a traditional white loaf. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Bake for approximately 30-45 mins.
