My SIL and sister say I'm wasting my time with his lunches as he will probably want what the other kids have so I'm in kindy mum denial and just hoping it lasts longer than I think! He hates vegemite and most sandwiches so would doubt he would ask for that and he really loves his food but I suppose it all depends what the other kids have!
I try and do something different each day. We usually go between ; mountain bread wraps
Chicken drumsticks or meatballs with a salad
Chicken Caesar salad
I then make up batches of snacks so a few kinds of bliss balls, muffins, brownies (made out of cacao and oats), and boil eggs every few days.

My dd loves fruit so that part is easy. The other stuff is hit and miss whether or not she eats it.
Some things I have packed:
Crackers and cow cheese
Sandwich with either ham and cheese, vegemite and butter, jam and butter
Crackers or rice cakes and tinned tuna
Sometimes wraps with ham
I also usually pack a snack such as shapes, le snak, pop corn.
And as a treat plus to give me a break dd gets a lunch order once a week.
Ds will be starting kindy so hopefully he won't be too fussy.
My poor children are getting ripped off How do you girls find the time to bake all this stuff??
I think most kids just like a wrap/sanger, some fruit, maybe a homemade muffin and a packet of chips EM so just see how he goes. DS1 would eat the whole contents of those bento things at recess
Drives me insane. I used to happily bake muffins and scrolls Sunday afternoon. Great for lunch on Monday. Meh on Tuesday and "no freakin way 😝" by Wednesday!
