Have DD in Yr 1 and DS in Kindy this year. I pack them both the same.
Today's morning tea (packed in Tupperware sandwich keeper)
Vita wheats with Vegemite x 2, small bunch grapes, 3 dried apricots, small handful sultanas and a homemade banana Pikelet.
Today's lunch (packed in a 3 section lunch box) multigrain curried egg sandwich, small garden salad, piece homemade carrot cake, pineapple, strawberries and nectarine fruit 'kebabs' on toothpicks x 4.
Sometimes there will be leftovers but I'd rather pack them too much than not enough, hate to think of the being hungry!
I also only ever pack water for drinking. DD may have a lunch order Fridays and she has an lol or fruit juice with that.

Wow, I am amazed what you all pack for your children.
DS1 just started school and I am at a total loss at what to pack for him. He is so so bad with vegetables there is no way he's going to eat them if I pack them. He just eats peach or banana for fruit.
I am thinking of baking my muffins with hidden veg in them and homemade chicken strips and meatballs for his lunch. Looking for easy recipes.
You mums are amazing. I have lots to learn.

Whole eggs are banned at our school too.
I'm not looking forward to the day a child turns up who has an anaphylactic reaction to wheat, rice, milk or bananas. They might have to reassess their policies.

No wheat products at all. The manager also has coeliacs disease and I've been told she pushed for it so she could eat the lunches! Lol.
Our DD has a wheat allergy and we were going to send her because of this reason but chose FDC instead.

Some of the kids here are extremely well fed haha. My DS eats me out of house and home and I think he'd struggle with some of those. I try as best as I can to make sure he's getting different things and tend to give him a rye bread sandwich or foccacia or wrap, fruit, raw veg, cheese, crackers, dips, something baked if I've been bothered lol. He's only allowed water as drinks.
