smear peanut butter on a tortilla, add sliced apples or bananas, sprinkle with granola, roll and serve! Yummy, nutritious, and she can help make it :) win, win!!

You can freeze most any fruit, string cheese, yogurt which you can freeze too. Nutella if no allergies, with banana rolled with tortilla then cut like sushi. Get her involved let her make her lunch or snack. Two of my kids eat lots of things then go through stages and wont eat something. My older daughter very picky which is very frustrating. Oh, make juice if you have a juicer it fun for the kids. and its fresh and really 100% juice lol. Homemade hot pockets too. ok im done hope it helps. good luck:)

If she likes eggs, what about little egg and bacon pies? Pikelets always go down well in our family too. On hot days, you could cut up a watermelon and freeze it, they are a great alternative to icy-poles or ice-cream.

I'm not sure if you any concerns about allergies, but graham crackers with a bit of peanut butter spread on them is an inexpensive snack. The protein in the peanut butter will keep their belly feeling full longer too!
