need lunchbox ideas - vegetarian, no packaged foods

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am not at all used to packing a daily lunch.  Now dd is going to a daycamp and I have to figure out what to send with her.  

 

The only think I can think of the pack as a lunch is a peanut butter sandwich.  This gets boring every day, no? 

 

What can I pack that will be good cold and will not get soggy after sitting in the box for 4 hours? 

 

All vegetarian ideas appreciated!

I am not sure if I can help but I would double check and see if they would even allow peanut butter- most camps have a no peanut/no nut policy due to allergies.

 

Things I have given my DS:

 

homemade mac and cheese in a thermos

salad- put the dressing in a separate container to put on the salad at lunch

hummus and crackers/veggies to dip (as long as sesame seeds are ok)

cheese and crackers

yogurt dip and fruit

hummus and cheese sandwich

edamame

grapes, cherries, apple, melon

yogurt or a yogurt tube 

carrots, snap peas

baked or plain tofu

a veggie burrito: add warm beans, cheese and avocado (and anything else you want) to a warm tortilla.  wrap the burrito in aluminum foil.  it will cool by lunchtime but the tortilla will be soft.  my kids liked to eat these. 

nuts if allowed
