Lunch Box Idea No 2


Here's my second lunch box idea. This one contains chapati and omelette rolls . I frequently add finely chopped spinach and finely grated carrots to the omelette mixture along with some cheese,and ofcourse salt and pepper. This fortifies the omelette even more and makes it yummy too. Wrapping it partially in foil makes it easy to handle for little hands.

This time around the accompaniments are diced mango, the usual raisin box and a strawberry yogurt squeezy, which is the star attraction for my son. But it's healthy so I don't worry.

The school encourages the children to eat a lot of fruit, so the fruit variety in the lunch box is important. Fruit which go particularly well in the lunch box are peaches, grapes, pomogranate, pineapples, small oranges, small fun-size bananas , apples(but these I wash in salted water so they don't discolour) and ofcourse mangoes

I normally avoid cherries ,plums and lychees as they are very juicy and tend to drip and stain the uniform T-shirt.
