To stock your freezer full of grab-and-go school snacks that your kids (and adults!) will actually look forward to eating, try these
healthy lunchbox recipes below. These healthy lunchbox ideas are nut free and can be made ahead and stored in the freezer, saving you SO much time and stress in the kitchen!



I am a huge fan of simple and affordable lunchbox snacks. Handy snacks and lunches that can be made ahead and added to lunchboxes alongside fruit and veggies. And being nutritious and able to be stored in the freezer is also a bonus!

Freezer friendly lunchbox fillers save so much time and mean that you can have a store of healthy, convenient snacks to add to your lunchboxes in no time!

Usually, schools require lunches to be packed nut free. If your school is a nut-free zone, don’t worry! All of these recipes are free from nuts and a variety offer other allergen free options.

All of these recipes can be easily and safely stored in an airtight container and frozen for up to 3 months. Some snacks may need wrapping or separating with baking/parchment paper first.

So let’s get started, your freezer will be organised in no time!
