lunches for a 4 year old

my son just started preschool and I need some ideas for lunches. Snacks I can handle. I havent asked yet if they can warm up food for him. He eats pb&js and lunchables. Other than that IDK what to make him or get. he doesnt like lunch meat or soups. i thought about sending him those small boxes of cereal and a carton of milk. any helps or ideas would be greatly appreciated

  • When my kids were in preschool, they only heated lunches for the toddler room, the bigger kid room they would not, so I often sent stuff in a thermos for them. Mac n cheese, chicken nuggets, soup, pasta, etc. Otherwise they got jelly sandwiches on whole wheat (peanut free classes), string cheese, crackers, fruit, yogurt, grape tomatoes....

  • Oh, and my daughter LOVES cold pizza, so sometimes I'd get a pie for dinner and send her with a slice for leftovers the next couple of days...

  • soups, mac n cheese, even chef boy r dee in a thermos...
    can't imagine a kid that would eat a lunchable and NOT lunch meat... but ...
    crackers with cheese, fruit cut up, meat cubes (even real meat like chicken)... tuna salad... cheese cubes... pretzles...
