Snack in a box, antioxidants!

It’s fruit attack day…and not mangoes! The fruit bowl has simply been overflowing with mangoes this season but the snack in the box today focused on antioxidnats. Perhaps the pollution along the school route has something to do with the frame of mind? Though, I must admit, I don’t know in what forms oxidants do […]

Snack in a box, raw mango, skewered

‘Tis the bitter-sweet season. Heat and rain, bleary-eyed school mornings and fun snack box-packing. Yerrrsssssss! Another school year begins and it’s time to put on those thinking chef hats (they called toques, seriously?!). My older one loves raw mango, so this is a first time attempt to get that into the snack box and make […]

Snack in a box, apple checkers

The weeks are zipping by and it’s almost the end of Feb! Soon the summer hols will kick in and aaaahhhh I don’t have to wake up at an unearthly hour and worry about what to put in the boxes!!! But, while we are still here and the school days skip on – here is […]

Snack in a box, corn, pommegranate, sprouts

What can get healthier than this huh? An incessant drive to get as much health-in-a-box as possible has me reaching… For these bright little cup cake molds. They’re silicone cup cake molds which came in my last batch of serendipitous searching the net for baking accessories. And which I haven’t yet used to make cup […]

Snack in a box, black chickpeas

This should actually be called lunch in a box, but the ‘siab’ phrase is growing on me :). I’d pack just rice and a salad, or just rotis and a salad all these days for Sid’s lunch..without ever thinking a wee bit out of the box (!). But ever since the 3-compart’mentor’ entered the kitchen […]

Snack in a box, orange and red!

Love those tiny little oranges that you just want to slurp down all in one gulp :)? Ok, that may be a little difficult… and they’re even better when you slice them up and can see all the orange glory inside! Sid loves to have them sliced or simply cut in half with a little […]

Snack in a box, bento-like tryouts

Methi rotis (fenugreek leaves in Indian bread) is a staple in Sid’s lunch box. Phew huh? He eats methi! But just the roti is always a bit dry I feel so I used to throw in some raw carrots and cucumbers along with them. And I mean literally throw them in. But now we’re in […]

Snack in a box, sweet and spice

Kuch meetha, kuch namkeen is in our genes by now I guess. For an Indian, it’s an oft heard phrase at just about every occasion! Carrying it into Sid’s snack box with a peda (milk sweet) sliced into a flower shape – you can do this with any sweet of any shape, Just get jittery […]

Snack in a box: Pretty up a salad

Today’s lunch for Sid is spinach and corn pulao – yes, again – he does love it! I usually add some raw veggie along with this, instead of the chips that we are so apt to throw in at times. With the Lunchbots trio, I thought I’d try and make the carrots and cucumbers a […]

Fruit and crunch, snack in a box

Sid looooves guavas but this is the first time I’m putting some in a snack box for him. Just one of those things…when you don’t visualize certain food in boxes? Whatever! Cut in half, and then into wedges, they made a nice enough arrangement in one compartment of his box. What about the other half? […]
