How to: pack the bright colours and crispness of Canberra’s flora and fauna into a lunchbox

Ah, autumn in Canberra – freezing cold one day, perfect the next. 

As we start getting into the cooler months, it’s so easy to bring the colours and the fresh, crisp feeling of fun floral into your little one’s lunchbox. The idea is to make fresh healthy eating fun right?
