My daughter loves whole wheat banana and blueberry pancakes. They're great for freezing so I make a big batch and just pop one into the microwave when she wants them for breakfast. For lunch, I give her yogurt or cheese with diced fruit like strawberries and banana and pieces of chicken breast.

Breakfast: Pancakes, French Toast, Banana Bread, Banana and Peanut Butter Roll Up, Ham, Scrambled Egg, Omelets, Strawberries and Whip Cream, Fruit Salad, etc.
1. Grilled Cheese, Tomato Soup w/Goldfish Crackers, and Veggies
2. Deli Plate - Ham, Turkey, Cheeses, Pickles, Crackers, Veggies, Dips, etc.
3. Bake a french loaf, about 5 minutes before finished, cut it open and put sandwich makings on it and finish baking; serve with chips, fruit, pasta salad or veggies.
4. Pin Wheels, cut off the ends of the crust on bread, flatten out the bread, put ham/turkey or whatever lunch meat you want, then cheese - roll up and make sure seam side is down - looks like a pin wheel. Serve with potatoes, veggies, fruit, etc.

I agree with the post about whole wheat pancakes. You can add ground pecans (I grind in coffee grinder) to the mixture and the fruit when it is on the skillet. They are yummy, healthy and filling! Breakfast burritos, egg sandwiches, muffins, and plain yogurt sweetened with honey and granola. Lunch is easy! My kids love sandwiches--Nutella/banana, banana/peanut butter, almond or peanut butter/honey, chicken salad (just boil breast, shred and add a little mayo and mustard and parsley if you like), egg salad, hard boiled eggs, bean/cheese/rice quesadillas, pita bread/hummus, grilled cheese...I gonna cut my self off now. Just add some fresh fruit and veggies and you can't go wrong. Good luck!

breakfast... scrambled eggs, grits, oatmeal, toast w/ jelly, pancakes, etc
lunch... i buy huge bags of tortillas and keep them in the fridge to make them last longer. i put different meats in them each time.... turkey, chicken, ham, beef... always shredded or deli style. then i dice some tomatoes and put in shredded cheese and sometimes shredded lettuce. then roll them into the tortilla... my daughter calls them "rollups" but adults will say "wraps". she loves them and they're more interesting than just sandwiches. served with a side of fruit, rice chips, etc.

Baby carrots and celery with a great dip. Its a great finger food for them and you can create healthy dips full of protein. Not a fattening dip but something like blended beans, peanutbutter mixed with blended with applesauce (no sugar added for both) the applesauce will help with the texture of the peanut butter and help cut down on the fat or tuna for example all delicous with carrots and celery and great proteins. They will have fun eating and get a healthy snack. A tip for carrots you can buy the pre peeled small sizes in any supermarket, even if you peel them and cut them yourself you should boil them until they are almost fork soft (not mushy) that way your children wont have difficulty bitting into them, then refrigerate so they are cool.
