George previously shared how you can make the school lunchbox more exciting for your children:
‘Bright colours in the form of fresh produce [are key], use the rainbow as a form of inspiration,’ George told Daily Mail Australia.
The father of two also recommends making your sandwiches less boring by putting twists on them.
George regularly makes a ‘ravwich’, which is his take on the Italian ravioli, or the ‘spring-wich’, which is his take on a Chinese spring roll – for his two girls, and he said both make a fun alternative to a regular sandwich.
‘A bento box is also a cool and easier way to pack school lunches,’ he said.
‘There is no cross contamination – which is often an issue for kids – and it’s also leak proof, which means the food looks good.’
While you might think that preparing a lunchbox (pictured) that is as good looking as George’s takes hours, the 45-year-old said that in fact, it only takes him between five and ten minutes
While you might think that preparing a lunchbox that is as good looking as George’s takes hours, the 45-year-old said that in fact, it only takes him between five and ten minutes.
‘I’m usually prepared, which helps,’ he said.
‘I spend one afternoon peeling, cutting and washing all the fruit and veggies. Then I can just keep them in airtight containers in the fridge ready to go.’
Typically his lunches are stuffed full of ‘bite-sized vegetables’.
Mini cucumbers, mini tomatoes and mini carrots are big hits in his household, while using a red capsicum as a cup for other food has also proven popular.
‘Anything bite-sized is less daunting for children,’ he said.
‘They’re more likely to pick it up and try it. Smaller pieces of fruit are fun to use for their bright colours also. Strawberries and grapes are my favourites.’
