    Usually a carb type, sandwich or pizza scrolls or picklets, two types of fruit usually berries apples or mandarins (seasonal), cherry tomatoes and melon are also a regular feature. I try to bake snacks so home made cookies or muffins otherwise a fruit bar or shapes.
    In winter I'll put yogurt in there too but not in qld's summer.

    DP does the school lunches most of the time, but when I do my DS's this is what I put:
    -Sandwich x 1
    -Fresh fruit x 1
    -Yoghurt x 1 (generally the squeezy pouch type, but I also make Easiyo yoghurt)
    -Vegetable (cherry tomatoes, cucumber, carrot for example)
    -Snack (either sweet or savoury), could be a baked item like a muffin/cake/slice or a small packet of chips or crackers.

    My 6yo dd is very fussy with her lunch and what I pack only tends to get half eaten.
    She usually has:
    1 vegemite and butter sandwich
    1 serving of fruit eg nectarine, plum, banana, grape
    1 snack sometimes eg shapes, le snak, pancake


    Ds is much less fussy and for him it's usually:
    1 sandwhich with ham, salami and cheese
    1 serving of fruit
    1 snack eg shapes, yogurt, le snak, pancake


    If I run out of bread I will substitute with saos, rice cakes, crackers.
    I also sometimes pack tuna or scrambled egg as the protein substitute in place of ham/salami
