TimeOut’s Best Healthy Restaurant, Maple & Co has many delectable easy packed lunch ideas on the Plate Up app. We love their Prawn Roll recipe!  It takes only 20 minutes to make and it’s delicious - perfect, especially if you’re bored of the basic ham and cheese sandwich. The prawn and brioche combo is certain to liven up any lunch box.

Jenny Tschiesche, the famous Lunchbox Doctor, is passionate about educating families and schools to eat delicious healthy and nutritious meals to fuel the body and mind. We have several Lunchbox Doctor recipes on the app, but If you're looking for a quick lunchbox recipe, look no further than Jenny’s Tuna Nachos recipe is a terrific addition to your kids lunch box. 


We are also privileged to have recipes from Veganuary on the Plate Up app. Veganuary promotes a plant based diet with wonderfully, exciting colourful recipes. We highly recommend Veganuary’s Quick Packed Pita Pocket. It is nutritious and delicious - plus it takes less than 10 minutes to make!
