    As for lunches Ds takes carrot and cucumber sticks with coleslaw or thousand island dressing, tinned corn, corn crackers with Vegemite, mandarins, grapes, apple pieces, a tub with yogurt in it, an orange cut and peeled, if its a warmer day freeze the orange and by lunch it should be defrosted but nice and cold

    He loves any veggies and fruit. Will give the cherry tomatoes and cucumber a go. I do give him carrot and cheese already. Thanks

    Yes frustrating! They may be high in sugar but if ds has a packet of those they are the only thing containing sugar he will get that day so it shouldn't be such a big deal! They also won't allow it because of the possible nut contamination

    Mmm interesting. Thank goodness my son's kindy don't care about all this stuff! Nuts are a no no hut everything else is allowed :-) they do encourage healthy eating but nothing gets sent home etc etc

    We have no egg or nuts or traces of egg or nut at ds's preschool, EVERYTHING has traces of egg or
    Nut. So frustrating to find products that comply. so ds gets nothing packaged

    For morning tea I send ds a nudie tube thing with watermelon in one cheese and Crackers in another and grapes(always cut in half) or saltanas in another

    Sometimes I replace the Crackers with cherry tomatoes and twiggy sticks.

    For lunch he gets either salad or pasta sometimes tuna or salmon patties and watermelon

    Can I ask about kids who need a high fat content and sugar in thier diet. Dd1 starts school next yr and I am now conserned about what I will be able to send with her. She needs a high fat and a decent amount of sugar ( simple and complex carbs)each day due to having an extremely fast metabolism. At the moment we feed her up on dairy, avocado and nuts to get her fats and tend to make home made cakes and biscuits. I understand she won't be able to take nuts next yr but by the sounds of alot of places they can only have veg salad and meat she will have hypos and be very lethargic if that's all she is allowed. This has only just occurred to me as her preschool feeds her and knows to feed her up.

    carrot sticks/cucumber sticks/toasted pita bread cut into triangles with homemade dip
    salad/chicken wrap
    boiled eggs (if eggs allowed)
    pasta salad
    rice cakes
    natural yoghurt with berries
    fritters
    savoury muffins
    plain popcorn if allowed


    I find the no nut policy extremely easy to get around. It's easy enough to not pack a prepackaged muesli bar and I just give him almonds/cashews for afternoon tea if I feel he could use the good fats.

    Another thing with the nuts is sometimes their allergy can be so severe that its an airborne allergy. Or like a little boy we met that used to go to a playgroup with DD1 when she was little. He was so severe that they asked that all people attending not to have nuts that morning even if they brush their teeth and wash their hands well. Poor thing had had an anaphylactic reaction in the past in those circumstances.

    With snacks my girls take different things. Sometimes a tin of tuna will get added to their lunch box with some littel slices of a french bread stick. They also like mountain bread wraps. BBQ chicken or other leftover meat in their sandwiches or wrap. DD3 especially loves a container of cucumber sticks or those mini cucumbers and some snow peas. DD2 prefers baby carrots or carrot sticks and some slices of capsicum.
