    Wow, some kids have LOTS of food in their lunchbox!

    The system that works with DD's lunchbox is:
    1 lunch item
    1-2 pieces of fruit or veg
    1 snack (can be healthy or not)
    Water

    Some things she'll have as snacks are...

    Tuna and Crackers
    Vege sticks (cucumber and carrot, usually) with hommus or tzatziki
    mini rice cakes with cottage cheese
    Yoghurt
    Various homemade slices/cakes/etc
    Scones (usually 1 unless it's meant to be in place of a sandwich)
    Mini Crustless Quiches
    Fritters
    Cheese and Crackers
    Avocado Dip with Corn Chips
    Roasted Chickpeas
    Boiled Eggs
    Jelly with fruit in it

    Default Lunchboxes

    Same as sassy, my DD eats like a sparrow at school because she's too busy talking to eat!

    DD gets one 'main lunch' item such as a sandwich or wrap, 2 pieces of fruit so ATM she's loving cut up apple and watermelon and then 1 snack which could be something I've baked or today she has a cut up twiggy stick and cheese cubes as well as a water bottle.

    My DS being at daycare and access to a fridge has a sandwich, leftovers (usually a pasta), 2 pieces of fruit (usually apple and banana), cheese cubes and carrot sticks, 2 tubs of petit miam yogurt, a baked item such as muffin or pikelets and another snack such as popcorn or crackers with cottage cheese. It doesn't all get eaten but he usually eats some of everything and I'm happy knowing he has a variety and won't go hungry. He usually finishes anything leftover for afternoon tea when he gets home.

    I know, right. Sassy mummy. I'm with you in amount here.

    Todays lunchbox:
    1 curried egg sandwich
    1 fruit box juice
    Small container banana chips
    2 small pancakes
    A big Ted biscuit

    That will do her for recess, lunch and a snack while waiting for the bus after school. There will probably be leftovers too.

    ETA.. Derrr a drink bottle full of water. Frozen the night before. Cos of all the hot days we have been having.

    Lunch for DS most days is

    either saos, rice cakes or another sort of cracker i cant remember the name of right now(all have vegemite on them)

    Fruit stick

    Packet chips, tiny teddies or shapes

    Apple or banana

    Strawberry bites

    Bottle of water so he always has access to cold water at break times.

    Occassionally i might put a LCM bar or a muffin in there but DS never eats a full lunch as it is anyway so i always give him the minimum amount i believe he should have.

    Default Lunchboxes

    I feel like my kids are underfed!

    They get a piece of fruit for fruit break, a snack for recess (yoghurt, cheese & biscuits, muffin etc), a sandwich for lunch, and water to drink.

    I'm surprised at the number of people who supply juice, I've never encountered a school that allows it.

    Or school only allows it with those in year 1 and up and ONLY for lunch or recess. They can have their drink bottle with water only in class all day.
