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!
no longer or or ... dd is going on 12 (!) how was I to know there was a homeschool going on?
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
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
yogurt with fruit & dollop of jam with granola bar
bagel half (or mini bagel) with cream cheese, plus fruit & plain veggie
simple burrito (as above poster mentioned, but no avocado for my dd) with tortilla chips on the side
simple quesadilla (cheese/olives, cheese/black beans, just cheese) toasted in the am & foil-wrapped for later
cut apples, cheese, crackers
simple salad (lettuce mix, grated cheese & carrot, ranch dressing)
cold, leftover cheese tortellini
chickpea no-tuna salad (either on sandwich, or plain with crackers)
cottage cheese with raw veggies
