  • boiled egg with cheese and fruit, chicken salad with crackers and fruit/veggie, veg soup with bread, grilled cheese and tomato soup, left overs form dinner, hummus with carrot sticks, celery and pita chips, banana 'dog' (A banana on a hot dog bun with PB), Mac and cheese with tuna and peas mixed in it, quesadilla with avocado and tomato...anything you would at a 3 year old can eat...

  • Leftover pizza (cold slice), dinner leftovers (bite-sized pieces of pork chop, apple sauce, broccoli or roasted Brussels sprouts, etc.), a dish of macaroni & cheese (our leftovers of baked mac & cheese make many lunches, either at home or packed for school), crackers with peanut butter or cheese (also sun nut butter, almond butter), apple slices to dip in peanut butter or other spread (tahini, hummus, Nutella, etc.)
    Hummus on a pita or wrap with cucumber rounds, baby carrots
    Soup & crackers or bread
    Corn bread, chili
    leftover spaghetti with sauce
    leftover pasta (with sauteed chicken & veggies)
    Other sandwiches than what you mentioned (so, tuna, cheese, egg, grilled cheese, luncheon meat, wrap)
    If you're looking for at-home lunch ideas an open-face cheesy tomato sandwich is a reliably fave with my kids (lay sliced cheddar/other cheese on bread, top with sliced tomatoes, add salt, pepper & oregano, then broil until hot & bubbly)

  • Breakfast for lunch often goes well at my house. Scrambled eggs, bacon, waffles or French toast with fruit.
