  • You should get the lunchables that have chicken nuggets and powder BBQ.
    Pack her raw hotdogs in a plastic baggie.I used to eat raw hotdogs all the time the time when I was little they were yummy I still do sometimes.

  • One of ds fav lunches so far is chicken noodle soup in a thermos and 1/2 a pbj. I would think you could maybe wrap nuggets in aluminum foil to keep 'em warm. You can def do mac n chz in thermos too. How old is your LO? I've thought about doing the hotdog thermos but not so sure about him having to spend time putting it together etc.

  • Here is some ideas:

    Pick up some Turkey, Chicken or Ham Lunch meats & wrap them around some string cheese then wrap the combination with a piece of lettuce.
    Hard-Boiled Eggs
    Tuna (in water) on 100% whole wheat bread
    Fruit - apple, pear, kiwis etc.
    cottage cheese with pineapple chunks
    Vegetables-Tomatoes, Cucumbers, radishes,carrots, jicama
    Protein Bars - NOT energy bars(loaded with sugar)

  • hot dogs have too much sodium in them which makes us retain water & chicken nuggets have a coating on them (usually flour mixture-carb)

    Instead cook some skinless chicken breast & send them instead of the nuggests.
