So I am looking for new lunch ideas for my little guy. I feel like I am making the same things all the time! He always seems to be eating a pb&j, grilled cheese, sometimes I'll make up some pasta...there has to be other options! Any ideas?

Lol, I ask this question all the time and never get anything! The most someone ever said was that I didn't need a protein for lunch because my DS got it at breakfast but he doesn't because we do grains and fruit for breakfast. We eat:

Macaroni & cheese, vegetable, fruit

 Grilled cheese and tomato soup

steak, tomato basil pasta

homemade burritos

turkey hotdogs, fruit salad

There are more but I can't think of them right now.

 hmm.. we do leftovers alot, those are always nice. I'll also whip up some pasta, or some homemade chicken nuggets, he loves those. On cold days we'll have sandwich and tomato basil soup...

 When my DD was 2, she went about a month or two where the only thing she wanted to eat was egg salad sandwiches.  (Just hard boiled egg and mayo and a little mustard).  She still loves them.

We just do easy stuff because lunch time is when I'm running in the door from work and DH leaves 20 minutes later for work. It's our only "family" meal so I do my best to make it nice... but I can only do so much LOL

Before I leave for work (about 5am) I'll throw something in the crockpot on high and it will be ready for lunch. BBQ pork sandwiches, roast beef + mashed potatoes, spaghetti sauce + meatballs, etc.
