Hello there! My son has started kindergarten this year. Late last year I realised that instead of spending heaps of time with my plant babies, I need to focus more on my real baby. I have then been researching, checking out ideas and focusing on my son’s Kindy and school readiness.

Last year we stopped childcare as we knew he was socially prepared. At home we focused more on enhancing his reading skills, writing, some basic maths, we started sports and most importantly, paid attention to his diet.

He used to be sooooo picky! Recently he has been eating a reasonable variety of food (still has a long way to go with veggies though 😆). Still a slow eater, but has been trying really hard and I have seen great progress.

The key? Eliminate or at least lessen distractions (oh yeah he gets out of the chair, talks and do other kids' stuff but he's heaps better than before), provide balanced food options (even if they don’t touch them, keep offering), be creative, make it fun and be consistent! You will be surprised with how much their eating habits can improve. But remember, at the end of the day, children have different needs. You got this!!!

Lunchbox making for both my son and hubby has been a form of therapy. It drew my inner creativity and I’m loving it. As a shift worker, I need to make sure I allot time to prep their lunches. I am not a great cook, not a baker either, just an average woman who offers edible food 🤣. Hearing great feedbacks from friends and the teacher were just icing on the cake; the best reward - hapiness on their faces, and lunchboxes coming home empty most of the time.

I created my FB page

and IG page

to share awareness as to what goes inside the lunchbox? For real? Modern times have called for instagrammable lunchboxes, some of which aren’t realistic. I want to share ideas, positivities, to motivate and remind everyone that lunchbox making need not to be stressful. We gotta enjoy the food we prep for our loved ones. It is not a competition…yes we can make it look pretty and enjoyable, but it does not have to be gourmet or smogasboard all the time, basic still does the trick! Do whatever suits you and your family…better eaten than fancy 😛

As part of this new hobby and passion, I created this shop to provide the best quality lunchboxes, accessories and feeding essentials at affordable prices. We are located in SA but offer shipping within Australia. Pick up available; we can also drop off within Adelaide Metro.

Happy packing and eating 🍇
