It’s great when you can follow a healthy eating meal plan like that on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and it can easily fit in with your family’s lifestyle too.
With the school holidays ending soon for many families now is a great time to spend a bit of prep making some healthy lunch box snacks that you and the kids will love.
healthy snack recipes
Avoid that mad lunch box making rush every morning and get organised by having a few of these great Challenge recipes prepared and in the pantry or freezer. Then you won’t have to reach out for the pre-packaged, often unhealthy snacks again.
Try these to make a healthy lunch box the whole family will love. Click on the links and type the recipe names into the search bar to find them in the Hub :

  • Cheesy Broccoli & Egg Muffins – not only are these a great snack but add in some extra veggies or some ham and you can use a couple of these muffins in the lunch box to replace the boring old vegemite sandwich.
  • Muesli Cookies – get the kids (and yourself) reaching for these when they need a snack rather than a sugary processed biscuit.
  • Almond & Cacao Fudge – a good one to have in the fridge for after school if you have a “nut free” policy at your school. This is a decadent and delicious healthy snack to enjoy.
  • Blueberry & Cream Cheese Muffins – great for lunch boxes as well as morning tea if you’re having friends over for a catch up.
  • Coconut & Cinnamon Popcorn – make a large batch of this and then pack in lunch boxes in smaller portions for a healthy alternative to things like packaged chips.
  • Zucchini, Pea & Feta Slice – another great alternative to a sandwich is packing a slice like this into a lunch box. Add other “hidden” veggies if you like to make it even more nutritious.
  • Homemade Berry Popsicles – most kids love an ice cream on a stick even in the coldest weather. Not ideal for lunch boxes but great to have in the freezer for a healthy after school snack.
  • How can you go past a good “bliss ball” recipe for an easy and healthy lunch box snack. Make a number of combinations to have on hand so that lunch box creation is easy. Try the Strawberry Nut Balls, Quick & Easy Date Balls or for a savoury option the Spinach Balls.

Of course you can also add these tasty snack ideas into your weekly meal plan too, to enjoy in between meals.
Spend some time looking through the 100s of Challenge Recipes to find some healthy lunch box ideas that will suit your family.
