Mabel's Lunchbox Ideas with Hartley's

I have been looking at sending Mabel to pre-school for a couple of sessions a week, which means she would need to have a lunchbox. We received in the post from Hartley's their Yellow lunchbox along with stickers to stick on it and also 2 tubs of their jelly.

It did not take us long to create our work of art.


I am still getting the hang of putting lunchboxes together, but here are some of my ideas for quick, easy and nutritious lunchbox items that I use for Mabel.

1. Carrot/Pepper/Cucumber/Celery Sticks (Which ever I have in the fridge) I also put a small pot of hummus to dip them into, if I have any.

2. Fruit

3. Small Box of Raisins

4. Chop up some cheese into small cubes (Cheaper than buying the extra individual cheeses)

5. Ham/Cheese/Tuna Salad Sandwich (If she has cubed cheese in her lunchbox then I will opt for a different filling for the sandwich)

6. Couscous (Might sound weird but my toddler loves this. I usually throw many salad items in with some couscous to create more substance)

7. Yoghurt/Hartleys Jelly Pot (As a little treat now and again)

8. Bottle of Water (With all the running around she can never have enough of this)

Meal Plan and Shopping List #33

This week I managed to get a great deal from Waitrose. Not only did I have a £20 gift card to use up but they had an offer of £20 off a £100 shop, for first-time customers. An item was not in stock for delivery so I was still able to get the offer as I initially had over £100 of groceries.


Note: Some things might not be on the list because we already have that item at home.

Meal Plan:

Chicken and Chorizo Paella

Lemon and Herb Cod with Peas

Chicken Fajitas

Cherry Tomato and Basil Quiche

Posh Burger and Chips

Egg, Sausage and Peppers

Walnut and Cheddar Pesto Chicken Couscous

This week's shop I managed to get to Costco in order to get some meat and other household products. With 90 Bin Bags it will be months and months before I will need to buy anymore.

For the menu this week I have added the Homemade Pizza's again as we did not get a chance to do them last week.


Note: Some things might not be on the list because we already have that item at home.

Meal Plan:

Homemade Pizza and Chips

Spinach and Mushroom Carbonara

Sausage and Leek Frittata with Salad

Chilli Con Carne with Rice

Onion, Aubergine and Tomato Bake

Cheese and Leek Tart with Salad

Chicken Couscous
