  • My girls are two and half and the other is 4. I make them peanut butter and jelly, lunch meat sandwiches, fish sticks with mac and cheese, grilled cheese, sometimes along with those they will have apple sauce, grapes or a fruit cup or some yougert. Every once in awhile they will eat left overs from the night before depending on what we had.

  • I only have an 18 month old, but she LOVES mac and cheese for lunch-one of her faves. We also do a lot of tuna sandwiches, tons of fruit and veggies, pizza-another one of her faves LOL- and "breakfast" stuff, ie. french toast, eggs, bacon, etc.

  • My son loves grilled sandwiches. Not sure why but he is obssessed with them.

    He also likes to just be given an open can of sweetpeas. He will eat sweetpeas till he throws up.
