3 kids’ sports day recipes

Pack a nutritious lunch box to keep your mini athletes' energy levels high.

The perfect event snack box

A healthy wrap (for example on top of mountain bread, spread some avocado and layer on some turkey or shredded chicken, grated cheese and grated carrot)

  • Muesli slice
  • Banana bread
  • Trail mix
  • Wholegrain crackers
  • Cheese sticks
  • Yogurt/creamed rice
  • A honey or peanut butter sandwich
  • A tetra pack of flavoured milk (longlife)
  • Water and cordial

Remember to keep any meat products cold, and on warm days, taking frozen drinks and yoghurts not only helps chill the lunchbox, it provides a refreshing snack to help cool down hot and bothered kids.
