School lunches...

Tina - posted on 03/02/2010 ( 5 moms have responded )




My daughter is starting JK in a couple of weeks, for the second time (had MANY problems with the first school, so we switched her to a new one). What foods, other than sandwiches, are good to send with her for lunch? (I know not to send nut products and eliminate wrappers/garbage.) Any suggestions???

When my kids get bored with sandwiches, I send soup warmed, in a thermos or cheese and crackers. Sometimes, I send leftovers from dinner, the night before. Hope this helps!

I'm glad these are helpful. Anytime that I find lunch suggestions, I just put them in a file. Some work for my kids, some don't, but I have them on hand.
