I need some ideas for some simple lunches for my 3 year old. He's a very picky eater though.

I have breakfast taken care of and dinners but need lunch ideas. Going shopping soon.

Um maybe try changing simple things up? DH buys the most RANDOM things and the kids end up liking it! They were starting to get bored with PB&J so we went to mac and cheese, when that got old I was like um ok PB&J again? Well DH bought CRUNCHY peanut butter, and Olivia LOVED it! So it could be something as simple as changing a certain item. Good luck, and I look foward to seeing what other people say because I have the exact same problem. Olivia only ever really wants to eat "mickey mouse cheese"

My little girl is 2 1/2 and she is a very picky eater and one easy lunch idea i have found that she loves is kalbassa and cheese and crackers.

I agree tell us what he will eat. Also can they microwave things for him?

My son loves hummus. So I'll make a roll up with a wrap. Quick and good for him too! English muffin pizzas are always yummy. I feed my child 3 meals a day and those are the only two things I can come up with right now! I just had a baby 7 weeks ago will I ever get my mind back? lol!
