Hi All!

I am going to be new to the world of school age children and I am seeking some lunch box ideas, mainly for the main course. Fruit cups, etc. are easy. My obstacle is for "sandwiches". It there a good GF bread or bread recipe that doesnt need to be toasted and holds up well in a lunchbox?



AnY IDEAS WOULD BE GREAT!

Instead of crumbly sandwiches, we have found the wide world of muffins. I bake them in the cupcake papers with all sorts of healthy ingredients . Some varieties my son likes have grated carrots, dried cranberries, grated cheese etc. They hold up much better than bread.

I can make pancakes, crepes, biscuits and pizza dough with Pamela's Baking mix. All can work well in lunches. The pancakes can be make sweet or savory and work well for regular sandwiches (pb and j, lunchmeat and chese, ect.). I buy it on amazon and the whole family likes the taste of it. You could also do different types of sushi, (doesn't have to have raw fish in it); try searching "bento box lunches" for ideas. You could also do Gluten free waffles and pb. I also can find the round crunchy corn tortillas and send a "make your own taco" kit like the lunchables that other kids have. Good luck!

Chebe brand makes and all purpose bread mix that is our daughters favorite - it bakes a smaller loaf than regular bread but makes a great PB&J. We are GF/CF and do Hormel Natural Salami or Ham with a soy "cream cheese". I have come up with some great recipes for cookies, cakes, etc if your interested or check out my blog (it's new and is only in the beginning stages but I'm trying to keep adding on when I have time): http://Izzysdelight.blogspot.com

If your not a baker try Ians Cookie Buttons or anything from the Enjoy Life line. Also my daughter loves Glutino pretzels and Fritos (and both hold up well in a lunch box).

Quackers rice cakes work great, corn tortillas, and left overs. Ham and cheese roll ups, Enviro kids "granola" bars. I think they are actually rice, but my son calls them granola bars and loves them. They come in chocolate, Peanut butter, and strawberry.

I use a bread from our local bakery for sandwiches and my daughter loves it. As well I have used brown rice tortilla's or corn tortilla's but they don't work as good and make a wrap using gluten free sandwich meat, lettuce, cheese, tuna, salmon whatever he/she lieks. I also do like a lunchable alot of times too gluten free sandwich meat, cheese and gluten free rice crackers and some veggies. If you get a thermos you can heat it up leftovers from the night before in the morning and volia warm lunch! Anything goes chili, chicken, pork, potatoes. Hope this helps
