Four Quick and Easy Hacks to Add Fun (and Veggies) To Kids' Lunchboxes

Looking for achievable lunchbox ideas that will help you win over the toughest little food critics? Try these four, super quick and easy Qukes® baby cucumber hacks for Crunch 'N' Sip, recess or lunch:

1. Sushi sandwich
If your kids are already complaining about sandwiches, try a sushi-twist! Simply roll up a slice of bread with your kid's favourite ingredients inside, such as Qukes®, ham and cheese, then slice them into bite sized pieces and pop into the lunchbox for your kids to devour. They're gorgeous, sushi-looking bites that take no time to make.

2. No bun sliders
If you are looking for a gluten-free lunchbox idea that will fill their tummies too, why not try cute Qukes® sliders. Simply slice the Qukes® lengthways, being careful not to cut all the way through, and then stuff with your kiddies' favourite fillings. Shredded chicken from the last night's dinner, cheese or even dips like guacamole, all work well in these fun little sliders.

3. Happy and hydrated
If your kids come home with full water bottles and are too busy having fun to keep sipping during the day, try adding foods to their lunchbox that have a high water content so they can literally "eat their water". Foods like watermelon, strawberries, Qukes®, and tomatoes are great for extra hydration.

4. No prep, no fuss:
Fun foods are a great way to get your kids to eat more of what's good for them. Bite-sized veggies like Qukes® and snacking tomatoes are ideal for this. Simply slice and pop in their lunchbox for Crunch 'n' Sip or recess.
