  • Mine will take all kinds of weird choices..leftover pizza, leftover fried chicken is a favorite, the bagged sliced apples from costco (the ones that don't turn brown but are preservative free) and a cup of Jif on the go peanut butter. Leftover spaghetti.. The most disgusting thing my son ever wanted though was to go to McDonalds for 29 cent Sunday and buy 5 burgers. Then he would freeze them and throw one in a lunchbag in the morning...he and all his buddies did that in middle school. It was his stomach so I let it was better than not eating at all.

  • Cracker, peanut butter, carrots, celery, and yogurt. Ham, cheese, crackers, fruit. Put the PB&J on a tortilla and roll it up, same with the ham and cheese. I have done dry cereal in a ziploc container (get milk at school). applesause and a juice box. Leftover pizza, chicken salad on croissant. Try the kraft foods website, they have a tab for school lunches.

  • You could put spaghettio's or soup in a thermos for a hot lunch, or warm some chicken nuggets in the morning and wrap them in foil

    I've seen you say this several times. Why don't you just post the list rather than taking the time to send out 100 separate emails.

  • apple slices are ok but put lemon juice on them first lightly to prevent them from browning. carrot sticks, trail mix(raisins,dry cereal and m&ms) juice boxes are good too. in my kindergarteners lunch box for day 1 i plan on an ice pack for her yogurt and cheese stick. a juice box and probably crackers but with out pb because alot of kids are allergic to pb and our school dont allow them. she is not a big fruit or veggie eater so i have think outside the box lol so to speak
