2016 Finalist Gold Coast Bulletin Best of the Gold Coast Personal Trainer Award + Fit Mum of 3.

Here is my go-to list which should provide you with variety and easy ideas for you to choose from of what our family enjoy in their lunchboxes. Trust me, our lunchboxes don’t always look as good as these pictures, nor are they always filled with just healthy foods, however we try our best which is all you need to do! Use these photos to motivate and inspire you to be creative and choose the foods that suit your kids tastes and make up your personalized “winning” combinations!

I am so happy to share these ideas with you and truly hope that even if I have helped each person that reads this with just one fresh idea each, then I have made an impact on spreading health and color into the world which makes me happy!  Maybe you could share this post to help out someone you know with kids heading to school too.

I truly hope this post has inspired YOU to feel confident and maybe you will even make YOUR lunchbox brighter and healthier too as this blog is not just for kids

We will be focusing on healthy lunchbox inspiration on our Facebook and Instagram Pages so be sure not to miss out on our upcoming posts and healthy recipes! I would love to see your creations so please TAG us or hashtag #getrawlunchbox on your instagram lunchbox posts!
