Cheese, turkey or pb&j sandwich, fresh broccoli or baby carrots, dip. Sometimes chips, if we have any in the house, grapes, applesauce. If there is nothing fresh in the house, I will microwave a frozen pizza and stick it in the fridge to cool off before it goes in the lunchbox. A couple times a year, I will make mac & cheese or spaghetti and put it in the thermos.

We pack snack and that is usually pretzels or crackers, dried fruit, nuts, and occasionally, a couple m&ms or candy coated sunflower seeds.

My son is so picky. The only lunch meat he will eat is bologna. He used to eat cheese and mayo sandwiches but now its either a bologna and cheese sandwich or a lunchable, a small pack of chips, either yogurt or fruit and a bottle of juice. The fruit comes back more often than the yogurt so I usually send that.
