The Packed philosophy
At Packed our food philosophy is delicious, nutritious and sustainable. We place an emphasis on real, seasonal, nutrient dense food. Packed lunches support little bodies to grow and learn with a good balance of complex carbohydrates, protein, calcium, vitamins and minerals. Our lunches are free from preservatives, refined sugar, artificial colours and flavours, and we also have a good range of gluten and dairy free options. So why don’t you take a day off the lunchbox routine?
Packed consciously targets the junior set – pre-school to year 3, where children are establishing their eating patterns and fussy eating can often set in. We know from experience that continuing to offer a broad and healthy diet, even during fussy periods, leads to improved food acceptance down the track, and we love to help parents achieve this.
Packed prepares lunches fresh that morning and delivers direct to school. To make delivery viable, we need approval to deliver to your school and five term subscriptions for each day offered. For example, to deliver to your school on Mondays, we would need five subscriptions for Monday lunch for the term.
Our current delivery area is City of Stonnington, City of Glen Eira, City of Bayside and City of Port Phillip.

Tailored to your individual needs, we can assist you to stock your pantry full of the best ingredients to support a nutritious whole food diet. If you are interested in switching to glass storage, we can supply vessels and make the switch for you at an hourly rate.
We will supply you with a shopping list the week prior. You can supply the items, or request that we shop for you. A Packed superstar will then arrive ready to set you up! Our recommended to do list includes:
- Family sized breakfast option – chia pudding or bircher muesli
- Smoothie bags for the freezer
- 1 kg Bolognaise sauce (or lentil bolognaise)
- Home made icy poles for the kids
- A cake or biscuit of your choice
- A plate of cut up veg for the kids
We recommend a 4 hour block at $35/hour. All our superstars carry a working with children’s check and Food Safety certificate.
