The team at Flora have asked us to find out about Mumsnetters' top tips for packed lunches.

Here's what Flora have to say, "We know a fair bit about sarnies at Flora but we understand that making them perfect for healthy lunches can be a challenge. We're keen to help you keep the peace at lunchtime, so whether youre tussling with fussy eaters or just trying to broaden their taste buds we would love to hear your thoughts!"

So what are your top tips for making packed lunches for your DCs? Do you try to get some variety with different types of sandwiches and wraps? Or maybe you keep it simple? What about snacks? Do you try to keep them healthy with a portion of fruit? Or perhaps you add a chocolate bar as a treat?

Whatever your top tips for packed lunches are, Flora would love to hear them.

If you're looking for ways to make packed lunches a bit more fun, why not enter Flora's Facebook competition for a chance to win a sandwich cutter in the shape of your DC's best piece of art!

Everyone who posts on this thread will be entered into a prize draw where one winner will receive a £200 John Lewis voucher.

Please note your comments may be included on Flora's social media channels, and possibly elsewhere, so please only post if you're comfortable with this.

Thanks and good luck,

Get some great Tupperware with little compartments inside. That way you can include veggies and dips and lots of little nibbly bits. Very popular in out house!

I put the usual stuff into my girls lunch boxes, including fruit, sandwiches of wraps, cake of some kind and cheese strings or frubes. I also sometimes include a little note or a joke to surprise them when they open a lunch box. You remember those lollies with jokes on the sticks? Well, I just sneak a corny joke on a slip of paper into their lunch box hidden between the chocolate crispy cake and the wrap smile
