    Default What's in your child's lunchbox?

    It's day two back to school & already I'm concerned about what to put in the kids lunch boxes. DD will have anything however DS is fussy and making it hard! So as the title says, what does your child's lunchbox consist of? Thanks

    My daughter has asked for the same thing she had yesterday lol. So she's got
    -grapes
    - watermelon flowers
    - a squeezy yogurt
    - a babybel cheese
    - a ham sandwich
    - air popped popcorn.
    She didn't eat it all yesterday so I'm assuming I've packed plenty

    My DD is a huge eater. I give her two wraps (chicken or tuna and salad), two pieces of cut up fruit and then two snacks, such as:
    Hard boiled eggs
    Pikelets (made on the weekend and frozen - defrosts in the lunch box)
    Home made muffins (again, frozen)
    Home made oat slice
    Chicken drumsticks
    Left over meatballs or nuggets
    Yoghurt
    Crackers and slices of cheese
    Carrot and cucumber sticks
    Popcorn

    Today she has some left over chicken pasta, a cheese wrap, some rice crackers and a cheese stick, a berry muffin and some cut up orange with grapes and strawberries. There is also a muesli bar just in case because today she has after school care.

    Pp have already listed most of the stuff in my kids lunchboxes, but they've also got twiggy sticks today. Other things I've done/will do- custard in containers, jelly, salad, homemade cinnamon scrolls, homemade sausage scrolls, occasionally for a treat I'll let my eldest bake cupcakes and they have one of those, goulburn valley fruit snacks, cheese and cabanossi and crackers....

    I also struggle to think of ideas. I have 3, they all like different foods, and they're all quite fussy.

    My son has just started school, but he's a fussy eater who prefers repetition.

    His lunchbox is just a smaller version of his daycare lunchbox, as the day is shorter.

    Morning tea - about 100mL of yoghurt, 2 sesame snaps, apple

    Lunch - sandwich with avocado, marmite, cheese and veggie slice

    He doesn't finish the whole box.

    DS has rice cakes, piece of fruit, fruit stick and packet of chips/biscuits normally. Some days he will eat all that, others he will bring it home.
