This sponsored discussion is now closed.

The way parents and schools think about the contents of children’s lunchboxes has changed over the years, but the excitement of realising mum or dad has given you a favourite treat remains the same. With that in mind, Soreen would like to hear about the school packed lunch inclusions you fondly remember from your childhood.

Here’s what Soreen has to say: “We all want our children to enjoy their school packed lunch and feel full and energised for the afternoon of learning ahead.

But we know it can be tricky finding that sweet spot– those healthier lunchbox items that you’re happy to give your children but which won’t come home in the lunchbox untouched! Then there are the school food guidelines to think about too!

That’s why we’re introducing Soreen Lunchbox Loaves, the healthier snack that is squidgy and delicious. Each individually wrapped mini loaf contains a source of fibre and is low in saturated fat. They also contain over 50% less sugar and 70% less fat than the average cake bar and are available in 4 deliciously fruity flavours – banana, apple, malt and strawberry. Not forgetting that they’re nut free and suitable for vegetarian diets.

Plus Soreen Lunchbox Loaves are school compliant so will keep the teachers happy too!“

Perhaps you remember homemade treats making you smile? Maybe a slice of malt loaf brightened up your lunchtime? Is there anything you had for school packed lunch that you give to your children today?

Whatever the school lunchbox items you remember being your favourites when you were a child, share them on the thread below to be entered into a prize draw where one MNer will win a £100 voucher for the store of their choice (from a list).

Thanks and good luck!

My mum used to make a lot of flapjack which I hated. I tend to give my girls the same old thing in their lunch boxes although they have better snacks than I did - Kitcats and twixes! We had boring old blue riband biscuits. I always put a little post it note in my daughters lunchbox saying hello - I know she is finding school a bit tricky and thought it would make her laugh. They have nutella sandwches as a treat - definitely not something my mum would approve of.

Dairylea triangles were an occasional but very exciting treat.

Also, (again once in a blue moon) a Mr Kipling French Fancy. I don't think I could eat one now as it would be too sickly.

Nibblies - this was a lunch consisting of tiny boxes of whatever was left in the fridge. Cubes of cheese, a few grapes, a cracker, some cooked meat... I later found out it was when my parents were actually running out of food, but my sister and I thought we were getting a real treat!

DC2 top treat is a babybel, DS1 likes a little pot if seaweed. Both salty and good for protein I suppose.
