So I have a school and kindy lunch box to pack and I am so stuck for ideas. I used to be so organised with this sort of stuff but its all escaped me. So apart from fruit what do you put in your childs lunch box?

I work off a system.
1 sandwhich type food
2 healthy snacks
1 baked good
1 fun snack
1 water bottle
Today it was;
A slice of Quiche
1 Apple/Mango Popper
1 Apple and 1 Pear
1 boiled egg and 1 fruit stick
3 freshly baked choc chip cookies
1 packet of cookies
1 water bottle
Btw- I usually try not to double up on types of food so the fact that there were 2 types of biscuits was overlooked in the morning rush.
I find this system helps me when packing his lunch. If I notice that he's not eating his fruit for a number of days (we all have those days where we just feel like a junkie day so I don't mind 1 or 2 days) than I'll increase the fruit and decrease other things until he starts eating his fruit again.

DD isn't in school, but if we'll be out all day I pack her lunch. Some things that I put in or make for lunch at home that could go in lunchboxes:
-savoury muffins (freeze really well so you can make a batch in advance)
-hommus dip with carrot & celery sticks and some crackers
-antipasto (cabanossi, cheese cubes, olives etc)
-wholemeal berry or apple & cinnamon muffins
-sandwiches or pita wraps

I do a whole range of things depending on what I get in my weekly box of fruit and vegies...
Things I put in are:
~ Stonefruit [seasonal]
~ Cheese and crackers
~ Frozen pineapple chunks [fresh pineapple]
~ Museli bar
~ Savoury muffin
~ Home made cheesemite scrolls

My DD mostly has a squeezy yoghurt, fruit, some kind of baked item- mini muffin/ slice, etc, and a wrap with ham and avocado.
Sometimes I mix it up a bit. Today instead of the wrap she has pasta salad and I gave her a few sultanas and BBQ shapes too.
I think she'd rather have the same thing everyday TBH.

im slowly getting into the swing of this lunch box thing. my 4 yo is a plain eater like me but will sometimes eat cold hot food that I wouldnt. so far lunch meals have been, sandwhiches, sausage rools, pizza, quiche. I put one bit of fruit a bag of school aproved chips, musli bar, cheese, yogurt. .. He isn't a big eater so I dont put too much in or it goes to waste. Im still keeping an eye out for other meals he will eat. cant wait for ds2 to start school, he eats anything so lunch boxes will be more interesting then
