Back to School – Packed Lunch Ideas

School lunches. They might bring a smile or a frown to your face. Some people may go out to shops for lunch. Others might stay and eat in the school canteen. The way to win the lunch game, you ask? Packed lunches. Try these three healthy lunch ideas which you can make the night before.


Salmon, Quark, and Cucumber Sandwich

Greek Salad

Slay the salad game at lunch with this tasty Greek salad. Again, this lunch does not have any added sugar and is mostly made up of vegetables. Tasty tasty!


  • Handful Lettuce
  • 1/3 of a Cucumber
  • 1 Large Tomato
  • 75g Feta Cheese
  • Handful Olives


  1. Cut up the feta, cucumber, and tomato
  2. Place lettuce in a bowl/Tupperware and put in all other ingredients


Pitta, Hummus, & Veggies

A pitta and veggies would not be complete without some hummus. You can also tailor this lunch to your own preferences. You may want to change which vegetables you take with you!
