Delicious Back to School Lunchboxes

GLAD Hamper Giveaway!

GLAD is constantly looking for ways to make our lives easier, while keeping our food fresh, for longer.

When it comes to children, we know that any and all tips and tricks are vital to help make a parent’s life easier – especially when it comes to school lunches. Below are some great tips from GLAD to give you an extra hand.

For Back to School lunchbox inspiration, look to your leftover ingredients and food to create delicious lunches. A wholesome lunch helps each family member maintain focus and energy levels for the day. When preparing dinner, look at which of the ingredients could be used for lunch the next day – it’s all about a mindset change. Using your leftovers for lunch will save you money and reduce waste.

Below are some suggestions for delicious lunches using your leftovers:

  • Slice leftover meat and make delicious sandwiches.
  • Use last night’s stir-fry with some hummus, tzatziki or guacamole (made from leftover avocado) in pita.
  • Leftovers from a braai are great to fill up a lunchbox. Simply seal each piece separately in GLAD Wrap or even a GLAD Sandwich bag.
  • A tasty lunch can be made with leftover meatballs, chicken breasts or burger patties on a roll. Combine with lettuce, tomato and cheese and seal well.
  • Leftover fruit is a healthy addition to any lunchbox and is ideally stored in GLAD snack Bags.
  • The extra cheese from last night’s dinner has many uses such as on sandwiches, salads, wraps or pitas.
  • Leftover food can also be used for lunch the next day such as chicken nuggets, parcel into GLAD Sandwich Bags once cooled, to eat the next day.
  • Mix leftover tuna or chicken with mayonnaise and some chopped up celery, carrots, gherkins or spring-onion to create a tasty filling for sandwiches.
  • Use leftover salad ingredients, such as cucumbers, lettuce, tomatoes and carrots as accompaniments for the next day – either as a healthy snack or in a sandwich, roll or wrap.

    One of the easiest ways to make sure you have lunch ready to go is meal prep.

    You can make sandwiches the night before, or even the weekend before, and freeze them in a GLAD BAG. In the morning grab one sandwich out of the fridge and toss it in the lunch box. By the time lunch rolls around the sandwich will thaw out.

    Such a life saver with 3 girls who needs lunchboxes.
