Quick & Easy Lunchbox Mini Quiches

JUMP TO RECIPE

I recently learnt that most of the time at school, my kids eat their lunch whilst playing handball!

It explains why some of the more cumbersome foods in their lunch boxes keep coming back. So much for teaching them to sit down when they eat and engage in mindful eating!

In light of this information I’ve started to focus on filling their lunchbox with bite sized bits and pieces that they can eat with one hand whilst slamming a hand ball with the other.

These mini-quiches work well and boy do my kids love them! There was even a lot of begging for a quiche from other kids at school. They seem to be a popular option for kids in general, not just mind.

In addition to being practical, healthy, and delicious, they’re so easy to make too. Try getting your kids involved in helping with and learning this recipe with you.
