Healthy lunches with Hartley's

I don't know about you but sometimes I find making lunches fun and healthy can be a struggle, especially when trying to do so on a budget and quickly.

With kids in Scotland being back to school for a few weeks not, and English schools due back soon Hartley’s Jelly Pots has launched a new campaign, Hartley’s Your Lunchbox. The campaign motivates parents to turn their hand to brilliant lunch creations and collect an exclusive Hartley’s lunchbox through its collector scheme.

So here are our healthy lunchtime ideas:

Main meals:
  • Wraps - tuna mayonnaise and cucumber is a huge hit in this house, the more cucumber, diced into tiny pieces the better. Both kids love it but you can do it with so many things, cheese and salad, egg mayo, chicken, ham. Fill it with lots of vegetables.
  • Vegetables and dip. We love crisps and dip but we also love vegetables and dip too. You can use healthy dips but since we are swapping the crisps with vegetable fingers I think we can have some tasty dips. You can get the selections of dips in a supermarket and put them in a few containers for variety. Cucumber, carrot and peppers are great ideas.
  • Oatcakes with cheese spread are great and so quick.
  • Leftover pasta dishes are great and means that you have a meal ready before the school day.
  • Picnic lunch with cheese, cocktail sausage, vegetables.
  • Breadsticks
  • Rice cakes
  • Fruit - having fruit salads with a selection of favourites if a great idea.
  • Yoghurts
  • Raisins

Of course every meal deserves a nice treat at the end of it  and as well as a nice piece of fruit, a Hartley's Jelly Pot are great idea for a real treat. They are the perfect size for children’s lunchboxes, providing convenience and a wide range of flavours to keep the youngsters happy.
