The Lunchbox menu is full of yummy wholesome choices catering to all children’s tastes and needs.

We've had some lovely feedback from your children about our naan chicken tenders - they are a big hit! Needless to say, that makes all of us here at Lunchbox incredibly happy as we are always striving to make the food we serve as yummy as it is nutritious.

Lunchbox Goodness Me!

Are cheese and tomato toasties a healthy choice for my child's lunch?

 The humble but mighty cheese and tomato toastie is actually a well-balanced meal, providing long-lasting energy, satisfying protein and one serve of veg, along with bone-strengthening calcium and vitamin C to support your child's immune system. Guilt-free deliciousness!

Reminders for the week: 29 April - 3 May 

Grade 5/6 is away on camp all week. We hope they have a fabulous time!

When do you go at red and stop at green?

When you're eating watermelon!

Reminders for the week: 22 - 26 April  

Please remember that this coming Thursday, 25 April is ANZAC Day and therefore there will be no school and no Lunchbox service that day.  


Welcome to Term 2, 2024!

We hope you had fun in the holidays. What did you do? 

We were having fun in the kitchen and are pleased to announce an addition to the menu...Lunchbox Taquitos.


We can't wait to see them being devoured by hungry little students on Taquito Thursdays!

Happy Easter!

Yay it's the Easter holidays and we're excited because that means... chocolate galore!!

We love eggs and bunnies too, but why not try this super easy idea for something different? Melt some chocolate, pour onto some baking paper and add whatever toppings you fancy. Here are some of our favourites!

300g of chocolate will serve approximately 8 people (or maybe fewer if there are any chocolate monsters in your family).

Our Lunchbox top tip - add a tablespoon of coconut oil to your chocolate before melting it to ensure a smooth, silky, shiny finish.

Congratulations to all the preppies!

You've just completed your first term at school!

And a huge thank you to our Lunch Monitors.

Collecting the lunches and returning the baskets is a big responsibility and you did a brilliant job.

We couldn't do it without your help.

We can't wait to see you all next term. Happy Holidays!

Lunchbox Goodness Me!

Goodness me.jpg

It's a beautiful hot and sunny week! Make sure to order one of our very popular Frozen Cups to help your little ones keep cool.


Did you know that our 215ml cups contain only 2 teaspoons of sugar?

Compare that with Zooper Doopers which only contain 70ml and have 2.5 teaspoons of sugar. That’s TWICE as much sugar and the plastic tube is not bio degradable.

Lunchbox Goodness Me!

Goodness me.jpg

Not mentioning any names, but did you know that one popular brand of berry pouch yoghurt contains 2 ½ teaspoons of sugar per 130g serve?


Meanwhile our yummy Lunchbox yoghurt & granola pots contain only 2 teaspoons of sugar per 215g serve.

That’s more food with less sugar-we love teaching kids to eat well! 



Reminders for the week: 19-23 February  

It's smoothie weather this week!!

Our smoothies are healthy & delicious-gluten free, dairy free & served in a biodegradable cup. What's not to love?!

The very popular Jojo features a mash up of fresh strawberries, mangoes, peach & banana. The Jojo will add some fun to your day.

Meanwhile Lucy Liu is a berry explosion with raspberries, blueberries, banana and acai.

Did you know acai (ah-sigh-EE) berries are a grape-like fruit native to the rainforests of South America? They contain antioxidants that help boost your heart's health and improve memory. Perfect for school days!

And the Paisley has mango, banana, passionfruit & pineapple. Close your eyes and this will take you out of the classroom and straight to the beach.

Remember, your straw will be located in the classroom basket. Bring your straw back to the canteen to collect your smoothie.

Enjoy these refreshing drinks this week!
