  • Lunchables seem to be a big hit. Peanut butter + jelly sandwhiches, chips, juice boxes, whatever your kids seem to enjoy at home for lunch

  • I pack this and this is the only things she likes to take to school:

    Cheese Sandwich
    CapriSun Wild Cherry
    Some oreos or chips

    She is a light eater, so this is good enough for her...for now :)
