With 3 kiddos in school full time and each of them picky eaters I thought I'd post some of the lunch items we pack. I hope you might have some additional ideas as the same 5 items get old after a while!! Also breakfast ideas are great too since they are all also in latchkey in the mornings.
For the boys:
Protein: ham & cheese, PB&J or fluffernutter
Fruit/veggie: Small cups of diced peaches or pears, applesauce, carrot sticks
Dairy: crush cups or yogurt, cheese cubes
Filler: cheese crackers, gold fish, granola bar, fruit roll-ups
For my ultra picky daughter:
Protein: fluffernutter, rolled up pieces or salami or ham
Fruit/veggie: cut up green peppers, carrot sticks, cucumber
Dairy: cheese cubes
Filler: granola bar, fruit roll-ups, gold fish
chocolate chip mini muffins (I make them because they are too expensive to buy)
French toast sticks
Any other ideas? My kids are so picky especially at breakfast! And since Dublin pushed their start time back by a 1/2 hour they'll be eating lunch even later so healthy snack idea for picky eaters would be great too!
Happy start of school everyone!
