9 Fun and delicious freeze-ahead snacks for school

9 DELICIOUS FREEZE-AHEAD LUNCHBOX SNACKS

These are the best tried and tested freezable lunchbox snacks from the moms at Stuck on You to help those busy school mornings to run smoothly.

If your kiddies are still on vacation, this’ll be the perfect inspiration to bust the holiday boredom as well as getting them excited about the yummy stuff they will get to eat come school time (and not a moment earlier!)

Muffin Mayhem

Muffins are such a versatile snack and my kids LOVE them! They are healthy, depending on the ingredients you choose and they can be savory or sweet (just swap the sugar for a pinch of salt). Double this Basic Muffin Recipe (or triple or quadruple, depending on your freezer size) and freeze the mixture in separate batches. Add fresh, new ingredients and bake a fresh batch of muffins each week OR bake them and freeze.

Store in Freezer: Up to 3 months
How to Freeze: Place muffins on a baking sheet and into the freezer for about 2 hours. Once they are completely frozen, place them in freezer safe bags or airtight containers.
Sweet: Banana, banana and walnut, pecan and dark chocolate, yoghurt and honey, blueberry, blueberry and ricotta, raspberry and white chocolate, apple and cinnamon, apple and raisin, apricot and pumpkin seeds, orange and poppyseed.
Savoury: Cheese, corn and bacon; goat’s cheese and spinach; zucchini and cheddar.

Frozen Orange

Frozen oranges are a delicious treat to have in the lunchbox and perfect for the still-warm weather.

Store in Freezer: Up to 3 months
How to Freeze: Slice the orange in half, hold together with elastic and freeze in a freezer safe bag. In the morning put them in your kids’ lunchbox with a teaspoon and tea towel (so their hands don’t get too cold). The orange will also keep the rest of their lunch cool.
