  • Sandwich of choice or bagel. Fruit such as cut up apple grapes etc. Frozen gogurt, juice pack, pretzels etc. Then if they are eating lunches well I will pack a treat like a rice krispie treat or hostess something or other.

  • Apple,
    bottled water,
    ham,mayo and cheese sandwich.

    I will switch out the kind of sandwich and change out the fruits but that is basically what DD eats daily for lunch anyway.

  • my son is excited about eating the school lunch so i paid for the week. They havent sent home their menu yet..but when they do if he decides he doesnt want to eat on a particular day then i will pack him a bologna sandwhich (his fav) with chs and pickles..(i call it a crabby patty)... some strawberries or grapes, a string cheese, and crackers. he eats breakfast here at home but he is allowed to take a morning snack if he wants to eat in the cafeteria while other kids are eating breakfast while waiting for school to start. i packed him grapes and a capri sun

  • We usually go for a sandwich, chips, and cookies. But will often vary it up with yogurt, two sandwiches with no chips, or crackers instead of chips. String cheese is a winner as is graham crackers instead of cookies.

  • It will be interesting this year...last year they both got hot lunch every day. This year it will mostly be packed and sent by me. So sandwich, juicebox, fruit, string cheese, graham crackers, cookies...I will switch it up daily though :)
