What does your tween pack for his/her lunch?

He wants to start bringing his lunch, but I want to make sure it's reasonably nutritious.

  • I make the sandwich- usually Turkey roll up on a tortilla with laughing cow cheese and lettuce. then they pack the rest, juice, friet, veggies, chips, treats etc- You need to make them responsible for there own!

  • Mine gets a sandwich (w/whole wheat sandwich round), a granola bar, fruit (depending on whats available), a treat, crackers or pretzels, and water (sometimes juice).

  • I don't have a tween. But what the other moms are saying, sounds good to me!

  • Mine quit packing their lunches, but when they do it's usually a sandwich, a piece of fruit (sometimes 2 so they have something for their morning break), a yogurt (usually a gogurt or tube so I don't have to deal with plasticware), granola or cereal bar, and money for milk or a bottle of water.

  • Thanks for all your help, ladies! It looks like I'm overthinking this and all your suggestions have been a great help.
