Trying to come up with healthy and varied school lunches is a bit of pain, don’t you find? We are nearly half way through the school year and I am already bored with our usual ones (like this one and this one),and I am not even the one eating them!!
I don’t mind making the school lunches. It is trying to make them interesting while keeping them balanced and healthy that I find challenging. The brain has to work and, most of the time, the brain does not like that!!!
I have recently introduced this new lunch into our school lunch menu and it is working out a treat.
I have to say that I have never been a big fan of sausage rolls, mainly because usually the sausages were very poor quality and the pastry was too heavy and fatty. However, I recently found small sausage rolls made with 80% meat sausages (when it comes to sausages, always try to buy the ones with the highest percentage of meat in them for minimum fat and maximum flavor) so I gave them a go – lovely!
You could also try to make your own sausage rolls. I have made them before using this recipe and they are surprisingly easy to make and so much juicier! You can make a big batch, freeze and take them out as needed.
HEALTHY SCHOOL LUNCHES : Sausage Rolls & Salad on a Stick
I tend to vary the ingredients on the salad.
Some of our favorite ingredients are : tomatoes, avocado, peppers, cucumber, olives, carrots, spinach leaves, cheese
I sometimes include a tiny little container with some tomato ketchup or relish to dip the sausage rolls into. They love it!
Do you find school lunches challenging? What is your favorite school lunch?
