Lunches for a highly picky allergic preschooler????? Help I need ideas....

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I need some good simple menu ideas for breakfast lunch and snack for L for preschool..She is allergic to gluten,dairy and soy..We avoid food colors and preservatives like the plague..HFCS we avoid also,

 

I have a few ideas but need a few more..They don't have a micorwave so her meals have to be okay at room temp with an ice pak in her bag..She doesn't mind lukewarm food however...My few ideas are this...

 

 

Baked chicken legs,corn on cob and mixed berries,sm bottle water

Hm lunchable..gf crackers,turkey rounds,cucumber rounds,cherry tomatos,bag fritos and small bottle water.

Hm bagel pizza..gf bagel with some sauce,gf pepperoni and daiya mozzerella broiled,fruit salad,natural fruit roll-up,bottle water.

Ham and Cheeze sandwich..Udi's bread with ham and slice of "cheeze" w/ketchup,Cantelope slices,gf cookie and bottle water.

Gf Chicken nuggets and Potato smiles(she loves these),sliced strawberries,bottle of water..

 

For breakfast I am at a loss..She just deosn't like cold cereal.She hates eggs.She can eat a nice big breakfast a home I guess and just take a fruit and milk box for the time she has to sit in the cafeteria while the others are eating.

 

 

If I can get some various fresh ideas for some more lunches for her I would be in heaven..thanks so much...

My dd loves sliced banana with almond butter on top. Sometimes I also drizzle honey over it. Great for breakfast!

 

Oatmeal... add slivered nuts, fresh or dried fruit, cinnamon, etc. You can also pan fry these and make oatmeal cakes.

 

Risotto and risotto cakes

 

quinoa (can be made for breakfast or lunch/dinner depending on flavors)

 

pasta made with brown rice noodles

 

chicken salad (dd loves many flavors- pesto, dill, walnut/cherry)

 

dd also dips banana chips in nut or seed butter

 

dd makes a meal out of side dishes like cole slaw, olives, pickles, potato salad, israeli salad, couscous (plain or with diced veggies), fruit salad

we often do dinner left overs for lunch

rice cake pb & j is (surprisingly) a hit

pesto pasta (with gf noodles)

amande yogurt

polenta

fruit, fruit and more fruit

I like to mix pasta salad with a cooled grain & chopped mint (like a fruit tabouleh) - so doing that with millet, quinoa, or brown rice might be nice (good for breakfast too).

 

A homemade granola that avoids all the foods you need to could work for breakfast (or lunch) too

 

Bean salad (like 'texas caviar') with tortilla chips

 

rice paper wrapper filled with veg (like mango, cucumber, pepper sticks - maybe cold chicken too) 

 

homemade veg sushi (this is very filling - and there's a coconut aminos sauce out there that's like a soy-free soy sauce, though some kind of toasted sesame oil based dip is good too. . . and I'm sure there are other ideas out there as well for dipping alternatives)

I mostly pack leftovers from dinner in a little thermos. Saves me time on extra prep.

 

Have you tried smoothies or oatmeal for breakfast?
