    Default What do you it in your child's lunch box??

    Ok this may be a silly question but what does everyone put in their kids lunch boxes? DD starts kindy next week and I'm getting really nervous about what to pack in her lunch, they have shared fruit in the morning and crunch (veges) and sip in the afternoon so what do I give her for recess and lunch??

    Sandwiches, wraps, yoghurt, cheese sticks/triangles, cheese and crackers, baking- muffins, mini quiches etc, dried fruit (sultanas, apricots), some more fruit, if you have any leftovers from dinner like pasta, fried rice etc (I would only pack these if they had heating facilities).

    My DH has got right into the no sandwich lunch -box isea6amd makes awesome kids lunches! Some things he's made - mini kababs. Gets toothpicks and but cheese, cabana, capsicum, makes his own fruit balls, dips and pita breads, breadsticks and dips, sushi sandwiches - bread with fillings but rolled like sushi. I refuse to do it as it takes forever but now they are at the point that if I give them a vegemite sandwich they won't eat it! Look on Pinterest - so many ideas.

    For the fruit break- carrot/celery chopped up.
    Lunch- fish cakes and chapatis with a side salad.
    Recess- Anzac biscuit and dried apricots.

    Lunches usually are either fish cakes, home made sausage rolls, mini quiches, pizza scrolls, zucchini/fetta fritters, chickpea patties or baked beans.

    Fruit break - banana (will not eat any other fruit)
    Recess - grain waves and a raffetys bar
    Lunch - Wholegrain Philadelphia sandwich and a baby bell

    All of these have to be packed separately ( so no point buying a bento box) nothing is kept refrigerated, although I use an ice block, I would never pack anything with meat/fish. I don't do baking.

    DS is in year 1 and has ham and salad rolls, mueslie bar and fruit for lunch, banana for morning tea and I also put some shapes or similar in for the bus ride home. He will sometimes ask for yoghurt, but not very often.

    DD is heading to kindy and will have the same as she's had at DC. She's more into "bits" - ham, cheese, carrot, cucumber and biscuits, but lately has been having a roll like her brother. Plus a mueslie bar, yoghurt and some fruit.

    Both have their water bottles and I sometimes put in a baked treat like a banana muffin or pikelets.

    Thanks for your ideas, we have been asked to avoid putting packaged foods (chips, tiny teddies, muesli bars etc.) in lunches, a lot of these ideas are great, please keep them coming (and recipes to). I'll have to attempt Pinterest and see what's on there to!

    For dds lunchbox today I gave her a banana, squeeze yogurt, baby bell cheese and milo slice and a honey sandwich. And tiny teddies just incase.
    Normally she will have more fruit.
    She knows she doesnt need to eat everything
