  • I don't pack lunches, but I send them with morning recess snacks like raisins, goldfish crackers, individual fruit/applesauce cups, Gogurts, peanut butter crackers, and fresh fruit.

  • Nuteal sandwich, fruit, veggie, crackers, drink, and something else. Some times salami. Depends on what my son wants to eat that day. Some times I take cookie cutters and make his sandwiches into differant shapes. He love it when I do that. I also put a note in there saying that I love him and to have a good day at school.

  • A sandwich, string cheese, some kind of fruit, such as grapes, an apple, peach, etc, and yogurt. I freeze the yogurt the night before and it thaws by lunchtime. It also helps keep everything else in his lunchbox cool!

  • The majority of the time, my kids eat a bagel with cream cheese, sometimes they will eat crackers with cheese and pepperoni.
    They won't take a PB&J sandwich because they have to sit at the end of the table (due to allergies in the school).
    Goldfish, cheezits, grapes, apples, pudding, jello, yogurt, teddy grahams, carrots, celery.
    Soup if you can use a thermos.

  • Fruits, cheese, wraps, sandwiches, little funny comics...

    I don't pack but thought I'd add these ideas.
