    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
    Well don't forget often when you bake you're making like 1-2 dozen things at a time. I might bake twice a month and I have a freezer stuffed full of baked goods.

    I'm sure your children don't feel ripped off at all.
    Sorry if that sounds defensive but you get a bit over the comments after a while - just trying to feed my kids people! Move along!
    Sometimes, hell most of the time baking and freezing saves me huge time when it comes to getting out the door on time. So for me it's not so much about giving different or fancy foods it's about one less thing to worry about. Even our sandwich are made in bulk and frozen.
    So lunch are grab a piece of fruit and something out of the freezer and we are out the door.


    No tuck shop at our school either.

    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!
    Yeah I don't even know why lunchbox content is such a hot topic of conversation among women. Does my head it TBH!
    End of the day, we're all trying to feed our kids and what they like, we like, what our lives are like vary so much.
    I feel like I've got my grump on - blood test tomorrow so getting anxious.

    Our kids school only has lunch orders and tuck shop (recess) on Fridays.

    Oh chick, so wasn't you! I just hate how these threads seem to always end the same way and I just have a bug up my bum tonight.
    I'll get that meatball recipe to you - and I get the mental health thing too.
    I think it's awesome what you are doing

    There's some great ideas on here! My dd would eat a vegemite sandwich for lunch every day if I let her. But she has recently started to eat mini quiches and liked them, so I have something to expand on ;-) for those of you that make rice paper rolls- is there a way to keep them fresh for a couple of days?

    One thing I make for dinner is cornflake chicken. I get chicken tenderloins, flour and egg them, then dip in cornflake crumbs. You then bake them in the oven. I give them a light spray with oil first. I sometimes add garlic powder to the cornflakes as well. They are really yummy for lunch the next day cold.

    We usually have them for dinner and then the kids have them in their lunchbox the next day. I probably wouldn't keep them another day, but I am super fussy with left overs.
