So to relieve any worries around lunchtime we’ve worked with a food and nutrition writer, Phil Mundy, to develop 5 tasty recipes that you can prep, serve and even store for later for less than a fiver!

In fact, the total for all five meals comes in at £4.61*. And, for savvy parents who want to bulk prep for the days ahead of for hungry siblings, our reusable Zipper Bags are the perfect tool!
