    DS started school today! Im going to do fruit and carbs ( muffins, crackers, rice cakes, popcorn) for morning tea and raw veggies and protein ( wrap or some kind of meat/fish) for lunch and a little treat ( goji berries, dried fruit )

    this is the lunch I packed for him today : watermelon for crunch and sip ( cut into batman shapes!) mini rhubarb muffins and strawberries and honeydew melon for recess, Turkey salad wrap, carrot and cucumber sticks and some olives for lunch plus the things in the middle are goji berries - he probably won't eat both wraps at lunch but can have the other one for afternoon tea on the way home !

    My dd will be starting school tomorrow. I will pack her lunch in the morning. She is getting ham and cheese sandwhich, taro bun (store bought) and some fruit probably peach.
    She doesn't eat much though, most likely will pick at the ham and cheese and leave the bread.

    My dd's lunchbox usually looks like this:

    Crunch and sip - rockmelon or carrot sticks

    Lunch - tuna sandwich, green apple

    Recess - rice cakes/crackers, sometimes honey soy chips (if the big packs are on special I buy them) yogurt

    Our school doesn't do a fruit break or anything like that. I always base lunch around a sandwich, snack (usually protein based) and fruit/veg. Sometimes an extra treat as well.
    Tomorrow DS is having:

    Cheese and Vegemite sandwich
    Hard boiled egg
    Greek salad
    Anzac biscuit


    Other things he often has are:
    Yogurt
    Cheese and crackers
    Various fruit/veg
    Rice cakes
    Anything I've baked such as banana bread, muesli bars, savory muffins etc.
    In winter he often likes leftovers in his thermos instead of a sandwich.

    There are lots of great recipes for muesli bars. Package free and so much cheaper and healthier than buying them! You can make huge batches and freeze them.

    How do you do your Greek salad? Do you have a dressing?
    My big boy who is turning 8 wants salad and dressing (olive oil and vinegar) and not sure how to do it.

    I put lettuce, olives, cherry tomatoes, parsley and feta in one container and then oil and vinegar in one of those tiny Smash containers for him to pour on at lunchtime.

    Tomorrow..

    I pack it in one container and they choose when to eat what, but they are 11 and 8.

    Chicken cold rolls and salad. DD8 will take a little fish thing of tamari sauce.
    Cheese and crackers.
    Fruit (grapes for one, strawberries for the other)
    Tiny teddy packet only because I haven't baked and they are left over from the school holidays.

    Bottle of water. I only ever send water as they don't like juice and will drink milk at afternoon tea time.
