    Are your kids eating the food you put in? If she didn't eat the strawberries I'm doubtful she's eat capsicum
    My boy is usually super fussy but he ate everything in his lunchbox. However he couldn't find his morning tea (it was in one of the pockets of his backpack) so maybe he was just starving by lunch time?.. I feel awful that he didn't have morning tea going to make sure he knows exactly where it is from now on.

    Meatballs (frozen... would be defrosted by lunch), cheese, corn, cucumber, avocado wrap and kiwi fruit.

    The only thing that has come back so far has been the wax from the cheese!
    Frozen meatballs is s great idea!

Now they eat mostly packet stuff at school because it doesn't go yuck.
    They have insulated bags with a large ice pack to keep them cold but still most days won't even eat the sandwich I've packed them for lunch because it's gone yuck.
    I was worried about that, so I don't put any "wet" stuff in the sandwiches. I remember soggy sandwiches from when I was in primary school - yuck!

    If you go with cheese and ham, or chicken and cheese etc, it shouldnt get yuck. But anyway, good to know your kids are enjoying their lunches now as long as they don't go hungry, that's the important thing

    The food I prepared also didn't go mushy, even sitting out all day. I'm a huge fan of the planet box, thanks to you! Before I started using it I didn't think I could fit enough food in for the day it it's actually perfect.

    Thankfully he loves them! Especially the baby ones ( I actually don't like them raw at all!) I just always gave him cut up capsicum and cucumber sticks when he was a baby so maybe he's just used to them ( same with olives, I also can't stand them but he eats them like lollies )

    If you can believe it, it's literally only plain cheese or ham and cheese sandwiches that I send, and they still say the go gross most days!!
    Today instead of a sandwich I sent two corn thins with a piece of cheese inside, put it in a brown bag to keep it crisp and then inside a plastic bag so it wouldn't go soggy and that got eaten by both of them. Yay!

    That sounds yum! My dad used to make me sandwiches with cottage cheese and tomato! I mean, could you GET a more wet sandwich filling???? Jesus! Also the sandwiches always smelled like soap because he wouldn't wash the soap off his hands properly before preparing them. Lol once my dad stopped making us lunch, we had to make it ourselves because my mum hated doing it. Talk about neglected! Props to my dad for trying at least!

    Remember the good old days when you could take peanut butter sandwiches to school?
