Lunch ideas for kids to take to school

I'm totally uncreative. What do you put in your kids' lunch boxes? For us it's a juice box, crackers, half sandwich. My poor kids need a change, any creative ideas?

  • I do lunchables sometimes. Or soup in a thermos. Sometimes he will get a hotpocket, but he doesn't mind if it cools off before lunch. Other times he will get some leftovers. Fruit, chips, even cereal occasionally to go with what ever the main meal is.

    he will also take yogurt (in the tubes) or cup, fruit, mostly apple, grapes
    crackers, chips, cookies

    and he also likes those cutie drinks

    and also in a thermos he will take meatballs

  • do they like veggies? send fresh cut up fruit and veggies...
    I have done those mini ranch dipps that you can buy and make a
    fruit dip... I put a small ice pak in his lunch box to keep things cool...
    he also likes taking his sandwiches, but he rotates from PB&J to ham and cheese...
    he also likes taking crackers and cheese ....
    my guy isn't a big yogurt fan so that is usually a no to pack up...
    breakfast bars is another idea ...
