My ten year old and eight year old take their lunches to school. But, they are tired of the ham and cheese, tuna and peanut butter sandwiches. I need some really good ideas if you don't mind sharing them. Plus some great breakfast ideas. Thanks for all the help.

Well my daughter is in Pre-School, but maybe what I give her will help you. She only goes 3 days a week, so I alternate these items mostly. Cream Cheese and Cucumber Sandwich, Tuna Sandwich (or wrap), PB & J sandwich, Turkey w/cheese sandwich (or wrap), pizza lunchable (only one she likes), Pitz Crackers w/ Peanut Butter and Banana slice. Then for snack/dessert I'll give her whichever goes with main and they are normally cheese stick, fruit, peppers (my daughter likes green pepper slices), chips, cookies, gummy fruit snacks, crackers. I let her pick her snacks when we go shopping, as long as mommy agrees of coarse:).



Now Breakfast could be easy. For my daughter and son I'll make them scrambled eggs, frozen waffle or pancakes, cereal, or bagel w/ cream cheese. Whatever they want normally. For myself, I make some scrambled eggs, heat up a tortilla, put cheese in it, put the eggs on top & I have a little breakfast burrito. That might be good for your kids since they're older.



I hope that helped! :)

Thanks for the help. My kids can be extremely picky sometimes. Like my daughter will refuse to eat the samething twice in one week.
