    Default QUICK!! Lunchbox help please :)

    So for the first time tomorrow I am sending my DS1 to kindy my DS2 to Daycare and myself to school (as a teacher ). I am trying to make things as easy in the morning as possible as I'm a single parent AND I need to get us all out of the door by 7 am to get to all of our destinations in time.

    My question is ...

    Can I make sandwiches/wraps tonight or with they be feral by lunch time tomorrow??

    DS1 - Ham & cheese wrap
    DS2 - Jam sandwich
    Me - Salad wrap

    I have the rest of our lunchbox food ready - experienced mummies and daddies - what do you think??

    Well I have never tried it... but I know Ex-DH packs DD1's lunch the night before, and often makes her ham and cheese sandwiches, and she hasn't gotten sick yet!

    Your jam and your ham and cheese will be ok, but your salad one would benefit more from being a salad in a container and 2 pieces of bread which you make at lunch time.
    If you put tomato on it it will be soggy and slimy in the morning

    I'd do what punk did & freeze. That way they will stay fresh & defrost by lunch
