I’ve recently learnt that most of the time at school, my kids eat their lunch whilst playing handball!
It explains why some of the more cumbersome foods in their lunch boxes keeps coming back.
So much for teaching them to sit down when they eat and engage in mindful eating!
So I’ve started to focus on filling their lunchbox with bite sized bits and pieces that they can eat with one hand whilst slamming a hand ball with the other : )
These mini-quiches work well and boy do my kids love them! There was a lot of begging for a quiche from other kids too. So they seem to be a popular option for kids.
They are easy to make too, especially if you get your kids involved.
With over 200 lunchboxes to tackle every year per child (!), my Easy Wholefood Lunchboxes recipe ebook was created for the parents dreaming up a constant supply of delicious options to keep their children happy and satisfied, while ensuring they are receiving vital nutrients as they grow physically, emotionally and intellectually.

Many of the ingredients in this recipe can be sourced from my one-stop-favourite, organic wholefoods online store, The Wholefood Collective. They go to great lengths to ensure everything they source is amazing quality, they stock all my favorite products and I don’t even have to leave the house! Oh and the cherry on the cake is they donate profits to improve food security for vulnerable Aussies.

Made this today. Didn’t have spinach so left it out. Chucked everything into Thermomix including onion and mint and mixed on Speed 6 for about 5-10 seconds. Made about 18. Girls ate them as an afternoon snack and loved them and look forward to having them for lunch tomorrow. So quick and easy!
So glad you loved them!
