LO is starting school soon. What should I pack him for lunches? He's not picky at all but he doesn't eat much either. It's kinda like, when he does eat, he'll eat anything.

I pack my kids wraps, meat and cheese with crackers, salads, then fruit and veggies. Today their lunch was salad with leftover grilled chicken cut up, some popcorn, grapes and greek yogurt. Tomorrow I will pack them peanut butter roll ups with pretzels, cucumbers and carrots and strawberries. Just whatever you normally would make at home, pack that :)

Wraps are good, mine love anything if its in a wrap. lol Or pita.



I also do home made lunchables. Crackers cheese and kabailsa (sp?) with pretzels, little containers of grapes, I buy big tubs of yogurt, so they get yogurt with wheat germ in it.



Apples,banana's oranges and celery with cheese whiz, or wow butter( not allowed pb here at school)



We also pre-make minni pizza dough, and freeze them, then they take minni pizza in their lunches, and have a container of grated cheese pepperoni, tomatoes, onions,mushrooms whatever they like on it, a plastic spoon to spread the sauce at school and add their own toppings etc...



And a thermos of juice or milk.
