Johannesburg – What's the best part about having a chef for a mother? You get the best school lunches, of course. 

Celebrity chef Siba Mtongana has taken the time to share lunch ideas with parents by showing them what she packs for her own kid for school. And can we be the first to say, those meals look delicious! The minion lunch box is pretty cute too. 

The star makes sure her little one enjoys a healthy lunch, which includes fruit, snacks, something to drink and of course the main meal. 

Some of the yummy foods she has showcased so far include spaghetti and meatballs, a cheese and ham wrap as well as a tasty tuna sandwich. 

Hmm... wonder if we can convince her to start packing our lunch too.

#lunchboxes ...It's Monday!! This is as close as possible to a meat free Monday for a fussy eating 6 year old ??... We've gone pescaterian on this one with tuna mayo. I usually buy the tuna in brine (not oil) so that when I add the mayo - it doesn't become too fatty/rich... Preferably use low fat mayo. The great thing about tuna is that it has Omega 3 fatty acids which are great for brain development and also it's high in protein. We also need to eat fish (or seafood) at least twice a week. So ??. We added a bit more veggies than usual. It's my quest to getting him back on all veggies again as he used to enjoy when he was younger. The multi seeded mini bun is one of the better bread options and I've convinced him that the seeds taste like nuts as he loves those ...which they kinda do! ?? I’ve toasted the inside of the bun on a pan so it becomes crispy. This prevents it from becoming soggy by the time it’s lunch...we also have sweetcorn, carrots, blueberries, grapes then fruit & veg yoghurt and sparkling's treat is a savoury...rice and multiseed pop chips ...they enjoy munching on these as they are tasty and as a mom I'm always in search of healthier alternatives. . . By the way moms, please do take note that I’ll only post daily until end of Jan...?????????????? . . . #Sibalicious #lunchbox #momlife #FoodieLife #food #instafood #foodgram #kids #parenting #ideas #inspiration #foodinspo #SibasTipsAndTricks
