Reminders for the week: 20 - 25 May  

Grade 6 students are away at camp all week. We hope they are having the best time!

Meanwhile, Grade 3 students are off to the museum this Friday, 25 May so please bear in mind they will not be able to have a Lunchbox order that day. 

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!

When do you go at red and stop at green?

When you're eating watermelon!

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.

Enjoy!

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!

Reminders for the week: 4-8 March  

Friday 8 March - Grade 6 students are off on their swimming program this week. 

Unfortunately the timing of it means they can't access our lunch service that day.

 

 

Lunchbox Goodness Me!

Fruits

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.

Reminders for the week: 26 February - 1 March   

Grades 5C and 5D are off on their M.A.R.S excursion this Thursday, February 29. Unfortunately the timing of it means your little astronauts can't access our lunch service that day.

Lunchbox Goodness Me!

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!

Reminders for the week: 11-15 December  

Prep A, Prep C & Grade 1C are off on their swimming program this week. We can't bear the thought of them missing out on a delicious lunch order, so we will adjust our service time for them to 11.10am. That means they can head to the pool all fuelled up and ready to go!

 Wednesday 13 December - Grades 3/4 A & E are also swimming but unfortunately the timing of it means they can't access our lunch service that day.  The good news is that they can order our lunches on Thursday 14 & Friday 15.  

Thursday 14 December - Grade 6 students will be attending their graduation picnic so they will not be able to access our lunch service that day.

We hope they enjoy the picnic (and the weather is warm and dry!)

 

Friday 15 will be our last day of service for the year so make sure you order then!
