1 LOVE YOUR LUNCHBOX BACK-TO-SCHOOL MEALS
Invest in some new Tupperware with multiple compartments and smaller containers for dips and dressings. Remember most schools have a no-nut policy and some schools don’t allow sesame. If this is the case, in the ideas below, replace tahini with sunflower or pumpkin seed butter and hummus with tzatziki.
• Falafel box Pack a few homemade or shop-bought falafel into a box with hummus for dunking, chopped veg and strips of pitta.
• Sesame noodles Toss egg noodles with soy, tahini, lime juice and thinly sliced veg like red pepper and spring onion. Top with sesame seeds.
• Fruity sundae Layer yogurt, berries and compote in a jar or pot, and top with some crunchy granola, coconut shavings or seeds.
• Oaty bites Make a batch of healthy flapjacks or energy balls using oats and dried fruit to keep them well-fuelled. Try our ‘feelgood flapjacks’ on bbcgoodfood.com.
