Ok so i need some suggestions. I have a 3yr old DD. I send her off to daycare and I feel like I feed her the same junk everyday. I have to pack her a lunch, so im packing either: mac n cheese, spagetios, those frozen Kid Cuisen meals, lunchables, hot dogs or nuggets. With that I usually put those gummy snacks and like a mandarin orange cup. So anyone have any other lunch suggestions that I can pack with her to day care??


THANK YOU!!

will shee eat sandwiches? deli meat and cheese?  pb and j, or tunafish? chicken or egg salad? what things do you make for dinners at home, you could make mini meals to send w/ her to the sitter.  Chicken, Porkchops, ribs, w/ fresh or cooked veggies? Other pasta w/ sauce homemade instead of canned.  Other good sides, would be Yogurt cups the lil danimal ones or the drinks, or tubes, jello, fresh broccli, carrots or celery w/ ranch dip, or celery w/ peanut butter...cottage cheese w or w/out fruit... ETC

Good Luck

My daughter likes turkey and cheese on a tortilla, rolled up then sliced in circles.  She also likes mini carrots with ranch dressing or diced cumcumber. Blueberries, diced strawberries, orange slices, well, you get the idea. You could also do pb&j on the tortilla, if your daycare allows peanut butter products. My daughter may love something for a while, then all of a sudden not like it. That's a toddler, I guess.

Soup in a thermos, variety of sandwiches, def. veggies with dip..like kids love to dip, fruit cups, applesauce, oatmeal or cereal (if having breakfast for lunch is ok...I know someone people cant do it).

They even have veggie cups that you can microwave that is a single serving.  I am in need of suggestions for lunch as well.

My DD is unbelievably picky...LOL. She will not eat veggies! My mom just told me to try fresh veggies and ranch dip, that she might like the crunch and the fun of dipping it into the ranch?? The only way I can get her to eat a sandwhich is take the "dinosaur" cookie cutter and cut it out. She dosnt like Peanutbutter.
