Fruit is already good. How about a salad with fruit and veggies? E.g. carrots, apples and raisins; or . Or veggie-potato pancakes? Does he like mashed potatoes? Put the peas in there. Or bake them into a meat pie. How about eggs? My girls love omelettes with spinach and cheese. That's also good with tomatoes or very finely sliced beel peppers. Put those into a nice bolognese sauce, or inside the meatloaf, or pasta casserole. All depends on how good he is at picking stuff out.

Quoting Sus:

Depends on what he likes (and how much he eats). I pack sliced fruit (whatever's in season locally), a small yoghurt, a sandwich of some kind (whole wheat bread, or sometimes cracker bread or rice cakes, for variety). Sometimes it's veggies and dip (plain yoghurt mixed with cream cheese and fresh herbs) or applesauce or trailmix. In any case, a bit of variety each time, and do think about what he likes to eat at home!

Quoting Caroline:

Try not to pack too much, the chances are they wont want to eat it all as they are too busy talking with other children. Schools are really strict now on unhealthy foods too. I pack my 3 yr old, half a sandwich, a little pot of crisp snacks instead of a pack, cucumber slices or carrot sticks, fruit, yoghurt and fruit juice to drink. All kids eat differently but i hope that helps! Best of luck. X
