Earlier, George shared his genius trick of turning leftover sandwich crusts into cinnamon rolls, and parents across Australia have called it ‘genius’.
To make the cinnamon rolls, all you have to do is cut the crusts off a piece of bread and gently join them together with your knife.
Once you did this, George told you to do a ‘little twist’ by folding the crusts into a circle.
Secure the circle or ‘scroll’ with a skewer to keep it tight and together.
“Put some butter in a pan, add some cinnamon and then put your rolls in the hot pan,” George said.
Let them soak up the butter and cinnamon for a few minutes, then enjoy the hot scrolls.

What are George’s best lunch tips?
* Do your shopping on Sundays and plan ahead
* Try to change the lunch box daily to get variety and different vitamins
* Don’t just make sandwiches – you can use wraps, pasta, rice, and eggs if school allows
* Use the colors of the rainbow to make it exciting for your kids
* Avoid sweet treats and opt for exotic fruits like dragon fruit or passion fruit instead
* Chop your food with fire and color different sections
George shared how to make the school lunch box more exciting for your kids:
‘Bright colors in the form of fresh products [are key], use the rainbow as a form of inspiration, ”George told Daily Mail Australia.
The dad of two also recommends making your sandwiches less boring by putting twists on it.
George regularly makes a ‘ravwich’, which is his take on the Italian ravioli, or the ‘spring wich’, which is his take on a Chinese spring roll – for his two girls, and he said that both are a nice alternative to a regular sandwich.
“A bento box is also a cool and easier way to pack school lunches,” he said.
‘There is no cross-contamination – which is often a problem for children – and it is also leak-proof, which means the food looks good.’
While you might think it takes hours to prepare a lunch box that looks just as good as George’s, the 45-year-old said it actually only takes between five and 10 minutes.
“I’m usually prepared, which helps,” he said.
‘I spend an afternoon peeling, cutting and washing all the fruits and vegetables. Then I can simply store them in airtight containers in the refrigerator, ready to use. ‘
Lunches are typically filled with ‘bite-sized vegetables’.
Mini cucumbers, mini tomatoes and mini carrots are big hits in his household, while using a red bell pepper as a cup for other foods has also proven popular.
“Anything small is less daunting to kids,” he said.
‘They’re more likely to pick it up and try. Smaller pieces of fruit are also fun to use because of their bright colors. Strawberries and grapes are my favorites. ‘
