  • We alternate between soybutter and jelly sandwiches with fruit, yogurt, and a few pretzles, chicken nuggets with fruit, vegetable, and left overs from the previous nights dinner. On occasion I cook dinner in the morning (if I can) so I make extra to give to the twins at lunch if it's something they really like.

    You can go on line and do a food pyramid for your child to figure out how much of what is needed. Generally speaking it's a cup to a cup and a half each of fruits and vegetables each day plus 3 or 4 oz of grains and 3 or 4 oz. of protein.

    Wraps are great too. You can use peanutbutter (if it's ok for your child to have) or cream cheese as a spread and then fill it with meats, vegetables or fruits with the peanutbutter.

  • We do a lot of PB sandwiches and pretzels, my daughter always asked for them. Chicken nuggets, pizza rolls, taquitos. Things like that! She also loves cereal for lunch.
