What did you pack your kids for lunch today?

We're low on groceries, I had a bad weekend and couldn't get to the store so I'm hoping to go tonight or tomorrow. I threw together a relatively healthy meal, I just don't think it will be enough for them. They said it's fine and they can get milk and whatever else from the school if they're still hungry. 

They have:
Mini pita bread circles
Sliced cucumbers
Fresh baby carrots
A slice of cheese (usually use cheese sticks or cubes but we're out)
A good sized throw away container full of hummus for dipping bread and carrots
A small thing of ranch for dipping cucumbers

My son was with his dad this weekend so I have no clue what is for lunch.

We had a crazy mornng, mine has a lunchable, gogurt, dried apples and flavored water. My daughter LOVES lunchables, so I normally let her pack them about 2 days a week.

Sounds like a lunch I would pack. Another fav of my daughter's is hard boiled eggs and misc veggies or fruit.

Today was ham rolls, a laughing cow cheese, a chocolate cookie I made last night and veggie straws. Oh and a Roaring waters pouch.

He buys. So he'll have either egg roll, fried rice, streamed green beans, and pineapple tidbits or pasta with marinara sauce and meatballs with those same sides.

Nothing today dd is sick. :( She will probably have a Popsicle or saltines with Gatorade. Tomorrow is the first day of hot lunch but she won't be able to go tomorrow either. :(

 I don't need to pack lunches, we make lunch every day at home. Today the kids are getting baked chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, broccoli, cottage cheese, and peaches or applesauce.
