The school year has started again. A start that also means that as a parent you switch back to homework and making lunch boxes mode. And it is precisely the latter that often leaves you with your hands in your hair. Because dilemma dilemma... what are you going to put in that lunch box again?
But do not be sad!
Because Vanessa from Nooitgedachtland.be and Festiviti went looking for sandwich box parties for you. Parties consisting of lunch boxes that make you smile and salivate at the same time. The kind of lunch boxes you find on Pinterest and of which you think: 'Merde, how sad are my ham sandwiches!'. Yep, that kind.
And we would like to list them for you below.
1. THE JAPANESE INSPIRED BREAD BOX
Go for lychee/mint water and a bread box filled with sushi, sliced radishes, cucumbers, seaweed leaves and prawn crackers. If you want to stay on theme with your ten/four o'clock meals, it is best to opt for lychees and Pokémon cookies. Is this not necessary? Then you can also supplement this bread box with a square jam with a dried fruit salad and a fruit salad of apples and red berries.
2. THE HALLOWEEN BREAD BOX
Make a fruit salad from grapes and mandarin, go for gingerbread cookies with a pumpkin flavor, a Prince cookie that you transform into a pumpkin with a cutter, a ghost marshmallow, sandwich with jam that you pimp with a cutter in the shape of a witch's cauldron, cucumber in the shaped like a broomstick, tomatoes, a vampire apple and finger sausages.
3. THE BREUGELFESTIJN INSPIRED BREAD BOX
Here you go for mint/grape water, a fruit salad of yellow plum and blueberries, gingerbread nuts with apple pie flavor, some nuts and acorn chocolates, some white sausage with apples and raisins, raisin toast or raisin bread and an Actimel.
4. THE AUTUMN BREAD BOX
This calls for raspberry water, a nut mixture with raisins and a chocolate owl, a fruit salad of apples and blueberries and leaf sandwiches with toppings, radishes and red currants.
5. THE FLOWERS BREAD BOX
Here you mainly need cookie cutters in the shape of flowers. You also provide blackberry water, a fruit salad with grapes and flower apples, a raisin cake with cashew nuts/pistachios, a few slices of sugar-free banana bread, some tomatoes, basil, olives and a cucumber/raisin/carrot salad in flower shape.
