  • sandwiches fruit or raw veggie maybe some cheese crackers or little bit of candy too caprisuns or kool aid jammers

  • I have an insulated lunch bag for my son and put two little ice packs into it. Every day he gets a sandwich, stick of cheese, Gogurt, an organic fruit rope, and an organic kid's protein bar. Sometimes I'll toss in a rice krispie treat or some peanut butter filled pretzels, too.

  • I always took a sandwich, usually PBJ or cheese. An apple or orange cut up, two cookies or one if mom made big ones. a box of juice (usually tree top 100%) and a snack of some sort, raisins, pretzels, cheese and crackers, ect. Sometimes my mother sent leftovers but not usually i was bad about bringing the Tupperware back. string cheese is usually a winner, baby carrots are good too. If you want to send cake, ect, it survives best wrapped in wax paper, not a plastic bag. with hubby I send leftovers a lot, and those instant soups that you add water to, not the ramen ones but the other ones. Fruitsnacks and fruitrollups make a good treat. I try to balanced what my son wants vs what he needs, A main item (usually sandwich) a fruit or veggie, and a treat of some kind. make sure you child knows not to share or trade though, because others may have allergies.

  • My son brings leftovers, sandwiches, fruit, cut up vegetables, cheese cubes, pasta, stir fry with rice. We have cold packs and hot packs that keeps the lunches at the right temperature.

  • I have seen a lot of good ideas on here but you have to remember that raw sandwich meat isn't the greatest thing to send. Turkey and Ham is one thing but when you are talking about bologna, that needs to be heated before your child eats it. It can cause food poisoning if not handled properly. You can heat the meat first place it on the sandwich and then keep the sandwich cold during the school day with an ice pack. I don't think alot of parents are aware of the dangers of bologna and hot dogs.
