What an amazing Summer we’ve had this year – at least we did right up until the kids broke up for six weeks, and then the temperatures seemed to drop quite drastically!

Yet somehow we have made it through the holidays and now it’s that frantic rush to get everything organised for going back to school!

The daily challenge of exciting packed lunch ideas that kids will enjoy is upon us….but don’t worry, help is at hand with some delicious recipe ideas from Juvela to help keep those tummies full during the school day…

Making your own wraps is quick and easy and is a great variation on bread for butties! Fill your wraps with your favourite fillings and roll them or fold them and add them to your lunch box! You can also griddle or pan fry them for a quesadilla style sandwich, which are perfect hot or cold!
