  • My 3 year old loves sandwiches (sometimes) - usually PB & J - with carrots and ranch dip on the side.
    He also likes "snackie lunches" as I've always called them - veggies cut up with dip, cheese, baloney, crackers, pickles...things like that. That was my favorite as a kid and I still love to eat it with him now.

  • Sandwich wraps were always a hit with my little ones.

  • I would make a big batch of vegetable cream cheese with broccoli, radishes, spinach, carrots all shredded up in the food processor and use it to make sandwiches, spread on tortillas or send in cups with crackers.. MY kids also like cold mac and cheese, and salads
