OK i need help. lol

I am babysitting some children until tomorrow. I have NO idea what kind of food to pack for them! Yesterday I made them a ham and cheese sandwich, goldfish, bananas, cheese stick, caprisun. Today it was pb &j, raisins, honey grahams, cheese stick, and caprisun. Now what about tomorrow? I cannot give them ANOTHER sandwich! (I dont have school aged children, and never had to pack lunches everyday- we just eat at home- and whatever we want) Should I pack chicken nuggets or something? Or what other things could I give them?

  • You can make a quesadilla, grilled cheese, or wrappers.

  • My kids get a lot of sandwiches - if it's what they want. PB & chocolate, grilled cheese, cream cheese (we are veggie), fresh fruit, chips, tube yogurt.

    They also like leftover pasta, tuna salad, yogurt and soups.

  • Ask them. But a sandwich every day is fine. I wouldn't do chicken nuggets. Did they eat what you gave them yesterday? If so, just do it again.

  • whats wrong with sandwiches, my son gets one every day and is fine with it. The snacks your packing are perfect.
