    Revolt with me and pack the vegemite. This "my lunchbox is better than your lunchbox" is .... Well... I'll refrain 😂

    So true! I WISH DD would eat a bloody sandwich! And my big two don't eat vegemite (weirdos) DS1 did have ham and sauce sangas on a regular basis in year two but his health teacher told him they would hurt his body!

    It's fascinating working on canteen. There were several months last year where almost half of the year 6 girls were ordering a plain whole meal bread roll every day. No butter. And nothing else. Not sure if it was in addition to their home lunches.

    I hadn't appreciated how peer influences hit girls at what they eat from such a young age.

    Mine had vegemite sandwichs or ham and cheese for all of last year. They got eaten 50% of the time. When I am motivated and make them nicer lunches they do eat them....e.g rice paper rolls, zucchini slice, vegemite scrolls

    So I want to put more effort in this year. I'm not trying to outdo anyone

    Sorry in reread your OP and no I don't think you are either.

    I definitely think there's no harm in aiming high with good food and wanting to give your kids more. I was also just saying that simple is ok too.

    Whatever works for everyone 😊

    Sorry to bombard you☺️
    DS could eat buckets of olives in one go if I let him ( I hate them!) black have more nutrients than green so I tend to go with those, the only downfall is the salt so if I buy a jar one I find they have more salt so I rinse those first otherwise I get the black kalamattas from the deli and try limit him to a small handful

    I get my butcher to make the chicken drumettes from the wing, I make a crumb from a cup of orgran quinoa flakes ( or their corn flakes) a teaspoon of chia seeds, 1/4 cup grated cheese and a handful of baby spinach and pulse in a food processor then just crumb them with egg wash and bake in oven until cooked about 45 mins

    The salmon is just grill/steam/bake a salmon fillet and once cooled, flake it into a bowl of cooked rice noodles and add grated carrot, chopped fresh coriander , thinly sliced capsicum strips and I make a dressing of olive oil, lime juice and sweet chilli sauce

    Omg I hate it when teachers do this. Having kids with aspergers and feeding issues. Just leave what I pack a bloody lone. Yes it might not be the healthiest thing in the bloody world but I know they will eat it. When it a choice between eating something and not eating at all. I choose eating what the parent provides.

    Im the same, i keep it simple, a healthy sandwich on rye bread and just try and mix up the fillings a bit, 2 pieces of fruit and a snack like rice cakes, pretzels etc.

    I cant see myself getting too fancy packing 5 lunches a week

    I think/hope we were all being a bit tongue in cheek with the lunchbox thing
