Packing healthy and tempting lunchboxes can be a daily challenge. We know we’ve done it right when they come back empty with smiling faces.
Our #FloraLunchbox Challenge, sponsored by Flora, is all about packing delicious and healthy lunchboxes. Flora has created a meal planner to help you put together tasty and nutritious lunchbox combinations, and they want to hear about your lunchbox ideas and challenges! A Flora-commissioned University of Leeds study recently revealed that only 1.6% of children in England receive a packed lunch that meets the nutritional standards set for school meals, with just 17% of lunches containing any kind of vegetables or salad. Flora wants to change that!
For our #FloraLunchbox Challenge, we’re looking for bloggers to:
- Receive a Flora lunchbox package, including a kids lunchbox, a £5 voucher to purchase Flora and a lunchbox meal planner
- Tell us about your challenges in putting together your child’s lunchboxes and your thoughts about the Flora planner as well as their online recipes and tips for picky eaters. (See our list of prompts to get you started, below.)
- We have £1,000 worth of shopping vouchers to give away!
Be one of the first 100 to sign up and you’ll receive the Flora lunchbox package. Take part and you could win 1 of 6 £100 shopping vouchers or a grand prize of a £400 shopping voucher!
How to take part in the #FloraLunchbox Challenge:
- Sign up to get your Flora lunchbox and voucher (hurry, only the first 100 to sign up will receive them!)
- Try some of the suggestions in the Flora planner, explore lunch ideas on the Flora site and take pictures or videos of what you come up with.
- Tell us in a post on your blog what you think about the results of Flora’s study, the meal planner and recipes, and about your lunchbox challenges (see below for suggested topics). Every Flora tub contains plant oils, such as sunflower, rapeseed and linseed oils. Flora is lower in saturated fats than butter* and provides a source of healthy Omega 3 and 6. These essential fats contribute to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels and are also needed for normal growth and to support the development of children. Flora also recently launched Flora Freedom. This is a 100% dairy free product, which is free of preservatives, artificial colours and flavours, and like the rest of the Flora range is approved by The Vegetarian Society.
