I have 6 children ranging in ages 4-16, and they have recently started having packed lunches, they are generally great eaters not too fussy and most of them like fruit one of them is a vegetarian.
i am finding it difficult to find enough ideas to keep them all happy and enjoying lunch while also keeping to the schools healthy eating rules, and my 4 year old will only drink water which is difficult to vary.
Any cheap quick fun ideas to keep them all happy will be appreciated

hey try making smoothies which theyll lov
A smoothie with the right ingredients can be as healthy and satisfying as a whole meal, and the similarity to milk shakes makes them popular with kids. Start with low-fat yogurt or soy milk for calcium and protein. Throw in just about any kind of fruit: strawberries, bananas, blueberries, mango, melon, you name it. Add a splash of fruit juice to keep it from getting too thick, and blend. To increase nutrients, try add-ins, like wheat germ or flax seed for fiber, spinach or kale for iron (it blends into tiny pieces your child won't even taste)
