What is your children's typical lunch?

My 2 have a peanut butter and jelly or peanut butter banana sandwich, strawberries or grapes, goldfish, and maybe a yogurt. Or about once a week, they have a cheeseburger slideshot(by hot pockets) and fruit and yogurt.
If they eat it all, they may get one cookie or small piece of candy.
Just curious what others eat. I could always use new ideas! Thanks!

  • We usually do pb&j or ham sandwich. We might heat up some leftovers from the night before. I try to moderate the cookies. So one day he may get 2 cookies and yogurt. Next day an apple or banana and yogurt. Once every 2wks we do go sneak a Happy Meal in.

  • Usually pb&j or ham/turkey and cheese. My youngest loves ham and cheese because she gets to make it herself! (She's 4 1/2.)

  • My daughter loves to have a plate with 2 slices turkey, 2 slices roast beef, & a slice/stick of cheese. If she eats all on her plate (usually she does) then she gets another round, she loves it. Also baked beans, mac & cheese, peanutbutter (only) sandwich, or sometimes she wants her meat & cheese put into the form a of a sand but usually she likes it all spread out on her plate plain.

  • Sandwiches, soup, leftovers, etc.

    Today they're having fish sticks, homemade french fries, and broccoli.

  • Leftovers from the night before, or sometimes I feel like making our big meal at noon instead of at night, crackers/cheese/meat (homemade lunchable basically) and fruit, eggs & muffins...kind of whatever.

  • We eat leftovers or sandwiches mostly. At least once/week or so I try to make a special lunch - homemade french bread or english muffin pizzas, tortellini, burgers, etc. All with fresh fruit and maybe a yogurt.
