The summer holidays are coming to an end and ‘back to school’ is upon us.
If you are looking for ideas for lunchboxes and break time snacks (or even for snacks for the office) take your pick from our ideas below.
Since many schools have a no nut policy, filling snack boxes with whole foods can be a challenge. We have a huge range of dried fruits, seeds and chocolate coated goodies so you can easily create your own snack packs for your kids.
You might also enjoy the sunbutter recipe below, this easy nut-free spread is a great alternative to peanut butter!
Take your pick and build your own snack packs…
Better for you and better for the planet!
We know small supermarket snack packs can be expensive and increase the amount of packaging your household generates. But when you buy our 1kg or Community packs of a few of your favourite snack foods, mix them up yourself and decant them into little containers – you’ll not only make a fantastic saving, you’ll also be reducing your plastic waste too!
SPECIAL DEAL… WHEN IT’S GONE, IT’S GONE!
If you like your snacks to be on the more indulgent side, then you’ll want to be quick and grab a pack of these vegan chocolate drops! We have only a final few packs available and at such an incredibly low price.
Smooth and delightfully creamy and a little too more-ish. These choc drops contain rice powder instead of milk powder to create a creamy, sweet flavour.

Sunflower Seed Butter Ingredients:
Spread the sunflower seeds evenly on a baking tray and roast at 180ºC for approx. 10 minutes, stirring the pan occasionally, until fragrant and light golden brown.
Add roasted sunflower seeds to a food processor or high speed blender and blend until a butter forms, scraping down sides as needed. It should take about 5 minutes. You shouldn’t need to add any additional oil.
Once ‘butter like’, add the remaining ingredients and blend for a few more seconds to fully combine. Taste and add spices such as vanilla or cinnamon or extra sweetness if desired.
You can store the sunbutter at room temperature for a couple of weeks, or in the refrigerator for a month or so.
