Coming up with lunch box ideas for a 5 year old is a challenge, particularly when the 5 year old in question has a host of allergies. We don’t have many options with sandwiches and I was stuck in a groove of honey, ham or jam.
I was reminded of the lovely idea which my sister in law uses, she is a Montessori teacher and has some excellent tricks with children. What she does for my nieces is make lots of little boxes, each containing something different. Fjord loves the surprise of opening the different containers and the variety. Here are some suggestions, raisins, left over meat such as chicken schnitzel cut into squares, sliced cucumber, mini carrots, dry cereal, grapes, mango, pineapple, berries, chocolate buttons, cookies, cold meat folded into little parcels, olives, sunflower seeds, cheese, the list is really endless. Try it and see how much your child loves the change!
