    Rice cakes with vegemite/plain crossoint/cheese and bacon roll for his main lunch depending on what is in the house and what he feels like along with grapes/apple, fruit stick, packet of chips and something that was baked over the weekend whether it's cookies or little cupcakes.

    The kids get 3x containers of food for the day. Even tho dd2 is home FT I pack her a lunch bag so she can help herself and it keeps the mess down. They each get a fruit box, snack box and main lunch box.

    Dd2 is 3=5yo.
    She has a cut up peach.
    2X Anzac biscuits, 1X mini apple/oat mini muffin.
    1X bbq pork bun and a side salad (tomato/mushroom/cucumber/capsicum/beans)

    Dd1 who is 5.5yo
    1X cut up peach
    2X Anzac biscuits and 1X pear/oat slice
    3X mini lasagnas plus same side salad.

    Today my kids have:

    DD: grapes and blueberries
    Baked beans
    Cheese and rice crackers
    Banana bread (homemade)
    Pikelets (homemade)

    DS: nectarine and blueberries
    Egg and mayo on Wholemeal
    Pizza scroll (homemade)
    Banana bread (homemade)
    Oat slice (homemade)

    My chest freezer is packed with lunchbox baking. As you can see my kids like different things so I find it easier to have 2 baking afternoons a term to cater to them both.
