This year I have bought the kids nude food mover lunch boxes that has all different compartments to help me continue giving healthy foods for lunches. So far I have thought of ham sandwich, fresh fruit salad, yoghurt I did give in on this and gave them chocolate custard, rice crackers for DS1 and veggie sticks and cream cheese for DD and I also popped some popcorn in coconut oil and the standard popper. Does anyone have any other suggestions so I can change it up so they don't get bored, I thought about making pike-lets with coconut flour and other raw organic ingredients.

Subscribing! This is my first year of making kindergarten lunch!
So far I'm thinking:
- Sandwiches (wondering if avocado spread thinly on bread will last or go yucky?)
- carrot and cucumber sticks
- yoghurt squeeze
- Baby bell
- hard boiled egg.
I love the look of these lunches:

Instead of ham try turkey and try wraps instead of bread ( avocado is fine )
cheese and crackers
Veggie sticks and dip
Mini chicken drumettes
Frittata or zucchini slice
Cold noodle salad
Crab cakes/fish cakes

Hadn't even thought of wraps, DD would love them DS1 not so much and neither like turkey but I might be able to do plain salad or chicken. DD loves cucumber so I might be able to substitute the meat for that at some point as well

Instead of sandwiches we often do...
leftovers in a thermos (if needed)
salad with protein included (meat, egg, cheese, etc).
homemade tuna or salmon "dip" with wholemeal pita bread baked in the oven to make "chips," to dip in there
Then for snacks...
homemade salsa and corn chips
cucumber, carrot and celery sticks with dip (hummus or tzatziki are her faves)
fruit skewers with a marshmallow on the end to make it seem like more of a treat
Mixing melted dark chocolate into plain yoghurt
homemade jelly with fruit chunks in there
