Two Ingredient Bliss Balls

2 ingredient lunchbox balls
Packet free options for lunch boxes + snacks are challenging.

Trying to get variety + nutrition in, is not easy, even for the experts.  Our simple, nut + gluten free focused options only use common ingredients you have in your pantry.  These literally take minutes. You will love them + so will your kids.

We originally got these from our gorgeous resource Kidspot Kitchen, full of great parent friendly recipes. We have just added some extra's that are completely optional but add in a boost of nutrition.
