  • Our litte one likes sliced apples wih caramal cups( they are fat free), we also do baby carrots and ranch, she loves the individual cheese packs or string cheese, the cubed cheese is a hit too. Also, granola bars, celery with peanut butter/cream cheese, go-gurt, raisins and ritz with sliced cheese :)

  • Lunchables. You could even be smart and buy the ingredients and pack them individually.
