25 Bread-Free Lunchbox Ideas


Sandwiches have become a bone of contention in my house. Everyone is sick of Vegemite, my son doesn’t like things that get sweaty (like ham and cheese), and we’re at a nut-free school so peanut butter is out.

So we’ve been putting in the research and coming up with some great lunchbox ideas that are free of bread but still quick, easy and delicious. And with the help of the School Mum Facebook mums, we’ve come up with these ideas.

Your kids might like some of these too.
