So far I fill his lil Ninja Turtle Lunch tin with fruit(vary from day-to-day as he chooses),a granola bar, a juice box (flavours varied) and a slice of bread(spreads I change daily)

I have come across a fantastic tip if your child or you like sliced fruit added to your lunch box but can’t stand to open the bag and see all your fruit has browned.

(http://www.mykitchenescapades.com/2012/08/lunchbox-sliced-apples.html)

Keeping your sliced apples from browning

1 Cup of cold water

1 Teaspoon of fine salt

Add water and salt to a bowl – stir.

Slice your apple as you please and place it in the bowl

Let the apple sit for 5 minutes

Drain and rinse the apples a few times

Place them in you lunch box/ ziplock bag or plain old plastic lunch bag and Voila’ no brown fruit snacks.

(FYI – I’ve been doing this with little man’s Granny Smith Apples and yesterday I opened his lunchbox after school and he had left two little pieces and they were still fine….no browning)

Good Luck cant wait to see all the Lunch Box ideas
