Cheese sarmies ARE SO last year. There are so many lunch options to make the long school day more interesting. Salads in a jar are the new sarmies; just put your bits and dressing in first and your lettuce on top. Give it a quick shake before eating at break. That way your lettuce will stay fresh and crisp.
For the carb conscious, a dip with heaps of fresh veggie sticks is the bomb. For those super active boys and girls, the same thing with a bread roll or two will do the trick.
For those who bore easily, how about a lunch buffet. Nuts, dried fruit, fresh fruit, veggie sticks, dip, crackers, biltong, crunchiest – hey; the list is endless. Give your Mom a list of your favourite things and toss them into your lunch box at night. Unless of course you are one of the spoilt ones – who has a Mom who still packs their lunch! And now that summer is here, pop your juice into the freezer at night; it’ll be perfect to drink by first break.
GREEK SALAD IN A JAR.
Bottom layer, baby tomatoes, onion rings, add dressing, next layer, cucumber slices, green pepper, then add feta and olives. Lettuce goes right on top. Give it a shake just before eating.
