Here at Bacofoil we know the start of the new term can be a stressful and emotional time.

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!

See Wednesday’s recipe below for more details.

*based on unbranded produce


2 slices wholemeal bread

1 egg, hardboiled and sliced

1 rounded tsp pesto

1tbsp soft cheese


1 tbsp sunflower seeds

2tbsp raisins or sultanas

1 carrot, cut into sticks

1/2 apple cut into wedges (tossed in lemon juice)


Spread each slice of bread with the soft cheese and top with the cucumber, sliced egg and lettuce. Sandwich together and cut into triangles or squares.

For the celery, mix the pesto and cream cheese until marbled, then spread into the groove of the celery chunks.
