School Lunchbox cooking class at Movenpick

In the run-up to World Diabetes Day on 14 November, Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is raising awareness about the importance of healthier eating habits, better lifestyle choices and early screening. Across the Middle East and Asia, 21 properties of Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts will host a cooking class in November, where participants will learn to make two Power Bites school lunchbox recipes.

I attended the Power Bites Cooking class held at Mövenpick Hotel & Spa Bangalore on 13th November. Here's a photo tour...

Chef Gaurav Bathla was all smiles as he dished up a set of healthy and attractive looking school lunch box dishes...

Power Bites is a selection of Mövenpick’s exclusive dishes for children that focuses on nutritional ingredients and healthy cooking methods presented in a surprising, fun way...

So the first dish is freakish Tortilla sleeping bags which are wraps with hummus and vegetable sticks... 

What makes it healthy?
  • The wrap contains raw vegetables
  • Hummus is used as a spread instead of a more unhealthy option like mayonnaise
  • The wraps contain whole-wheat
  • The cheese is low fat
The styling makes the wrap real fun for the kids...

Here's the recipe...

Next up is the Butterfly Sandwich of savory sponge cake, made nutritious with egg, mayonnaise, yogurt and vegetables...

What makes it healthy?
  • Brown bread or granary bread is used
  • Half the mayonnaise has been substituted for natural yogurt
  • Eggs are high in protein
  • It's served with raw vegetables and fruits
  • For seasoning sea salt is used rather than natural and contains less sodium

Here's the recipe...

A simple watermelon pizza made by cutting watermelon in pizza shape and topping with apple slices, blueberry compote and feta cheese...

The idea is to make the packed lunch box so attractive for kids that it is likely to be eaten. And here's the verdict from one of the kids...


  1. This is comprehensively photographed and written up. I've learned so much about our world through blog posts. Thank you so much. World Diabetes Day and healthy nutritional foods for kids is so cool.

  2. Looks like a real healthy one. I must make it a point to switch over to sea salt.
    That GIF says it all.
