  • They have 3 meals and 2 snack times. Snacks usually consist of fresh fruit, yogurt, cheese, occasionally a nutrigrain bar.

  • For breakfast it is either cereal or eggs. For lunch it could be anything from leftovers from dinner, sandwiches, just cheese, crackers and fruit. Dinner is always something different. Snacks throughout the day can range from anywhere from fresh fruit to chips. It all depends on the day and if I need to go grocery shopping. My kids pretty much each anything put on front of them, thank goodness.

  • Breakfast is a choice of: Waffle (I make a batch on Sunday and freeze them, then we just warm them up in the oven during the week.) Hard-boiled egg and toast or cereal. I buy one box of cereal per 2 week period of time and when it is gone- it is gone. They have to plan accordingly. :-)

    Lunch is usually a sandwich- bologna or peanut butter with honey or jelly. After their sandwich is gone they can have chips and fruit.

    Snacktimes are at 10 and 3... Morning snack is fruit, yogurt, cottage cheese, cheese sticks or pretzels. They get a choice. Afternoon snack is a choice of the same but also a treat- Popsicle or cookie or the like.

    They get a little pre-bed snack of milk and a cookie or pretzels or granola bars.

  • Breakfast - cereal, toast, or pancakes
    Lunch - PB&J, hummus and crackers, noodles, veggie burger
    Dinner - Whatever I'm making, usually deconstructed. He doesn't care for a stir fry with sauce for example but I'll put rice, tofu, and veggies on his plate with a cup of dipping sauce and he'll eat that.

    Snacks are mostly fruit or crackers with protein like peanut butter or hummus. He's a pretty healthy eater for the most part.

    We go out for lunch once a week. He usually picks Chinese (tofu, noodles, steamed veggies, spring rolls) but sometimes he chooses fries and an apple pie at BK or spaghetti at an Italian chain.

  • breakfast-eggs and toast or pancakes, waffles, oatmeal or cereal with milk.
    lunch-i pack him lunch for school, stuff like a tuna fish or turkey or pb sandwich and chips or pretzels, applesauce, juice and a cookie or other treat. I also pack him a snack for school like a cliff bar or popcorn.
    he always wants a snack when he gets home, so he has chips and salsa or hummus, yogurt, fruit or something else.
    dinner is whatever i decide to make. :)
