Back to school is here. It's that time of year when Pinterest's search tool gets a hammering by mums desperately seeking new lunchbox inspiration. It's gotta be nut-free, vegan, gluten-free yet still tasty enough for your child to not use it as a makeshift ball in a game of 4-square. With a few mums in the Remedy office – we know the panic stations of back to school are REAL. So, we threw it over to Remedy nutritionist, super mum and all-around legend, Jacqueline Alwill to share one of her favourite lunchbox snacks and BOY did she deliver with this Nut-free Lamington Slice!
