Pasta Salad

Pasta salad is a solid choice that’s totally lunch box approved! It can be made ahead, holds up well in transport, and enjoyed chilled!

You can easily make a big batch of this classic pasta salad on Sunday and add it to both you and your kids’ lunch box throughout the week. 

Method: 

Start by preparing your vegetables:

-Chop up red bell pepper

-Chop up yellow bell pepper

-Defrost Emborg Garden Peas

-Cut tomatoes

In a large mixing bowl, add your vegetables, pasta, Emborg Greek Style Cheese, and mix gently. 

Divide the portion into four lunch boxes. 

 

Blueberry Muffins 

You only need one bowl to make these easy and delicious blueberry muffins with 3 simple steps! They are perfect as the sweet element in your kids’ lunch box or perhaps as a little afternoon treat? 

Method:

Step 1: Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, and a little salt in a large bowl

Step 2: Add oil, an egg, and vanilla extract then stir with a fork until blended evenly

Step 3: Mix in the blueberries, divide the batter between muffin cups and bake for 15-20 minutes until the tops are no longer wet and a toothpick inserted into the middle of a muffin comes out with crumbs, not wet batter.

 

Snacks

An easy rule of thumb for a satisfying lunchbox snack is to pair protein-rich food, carb-rich food, and nutritious berries
