    Love the banana monster and the crocodile lunch bag!

    Shapes have always been a hit here - my nearly nine year old is far too mature now but my 6.5 year old still gets a kick out of sandwiches cut into stars or cars or whatever cutter we find in the drawer.

    I'll also cut out shapes with watermelon and rockmelon for funky fruit salad.

    Pinwheel sandwiches are always popular here too.

    And anything on a stick - I don't know why but meatball = boring, meatball with a toothpick shoved in it = cool.

    I do bento style lunches here. So the sandwich is cut into shapes (we have heaps of cutters) we have little food picks and I do like little star pieces of cheese on the stick with cut up bits of ham/sausage/chicken. I give a little fruit salad with a little fork for her to eat it with.

    I'm the same as you I just can't send packet food despite how much she'd like it. So I just make the stuff I do send fun and usually all the other kids are jealous of what she's got instead of her being jealous of packets of chips and biscuits.

    This is a pic of their lunch boxes from last year. We don't use the same lunchbox for school but you get the idea.

    I draw on Miss 5's bananas and also make up little 'Bento' box style lunches with some japanese bento cutters etc that I have (I don't do this everyday) but when they're getting a bit sick of the same ol, same ol to jazz it up a bit.

    Another thing I found recently are these Hallmark lunchbox notes, they are so lovely, heaps of different messages that you can pop into their lunch box to surprise them, and parts when you can write your own message etc, they're really sweet, especially the encouragement ones.
