Peanut safe ugh

My dd school is "peanut safe" which means nothing made from peanuts or tree nuts can enter the building.

Both my dd are picky eaters. They do not like cold
Cut sandwiches and they can't bring in leftovers cause they are not allowed to heat them up....

I understand the deadly affect nuts have on those who unfortunately have the allergy but what about my girls?? I feel as though my girls rights are being infringed upon. If they were able to bring peanut butter I know they would be eating lunch and getting some protein.

One daughter doesn't eat cheese ....what am I supposed to feed them??

Do any of you have this situation at your school? What are your thoughts??

Would they eat the school's hot lunch? At my dd's school there are 3 different lunches to pick from everyday so she always eats there. Otherwise hard boiled eggs have protein. I used to pack hard salami chunks, crackers, apple, grapes, water.

My DS is a great eater but has never been a fan of sandwiches.  Most days he takes a yogart, a cheese stick, fruit, veggie and a baked goodie or treat.  It's enough to hold him during the day and then he just eats a good breakfast, after school snack and dinner.  Occasionally I'll do chips and salsa for him. 

You can also do hot foods in a hot food thermos.  Soup, spaghetti, ravioli, stirfry, mac and cheese, leftovers, etc.  Put super hot water in the thermos and let it sit for a few minutes to heat the insulation.  Then add hot food and put the lid on.  It will still be warm at lunch time.

 Spagettios, raviolis, ramen noodles, casseroles, etc. anything like that, that can be put in a thermos.

I've been dealing with this as well for years now ... Here's how I dealt with it - hopefully it helps you a bit !!

I bought a good Thermos and I give her soup, spaguetti, left overs (anything saucy) if you pour boiling water in the thermos before and put food in really hot it does keep the food hot - but invest in a decent Thermos.

With a good Ice Pack on hand and an insulated lunch box I give her sandwiches (turkey, ham, egg salad, tuna  etc) I also do wraps.  Somedays I give her hard boiled eggs, a salad or even pita and dip.  I do tomato pizza (italian style).

I always pack DD some fresh fruit, fresh veggies, a yogurt or other dairy, a juice and a "main course" and a dessert.  She's not big on sandwiches either but over the years we found what works.  Sometimes I'll do pasta salad too !  Yes it sucks and yes you are going to have to be inventive and your girls are gonna have to deal - there's no way around it ...
