What did you put in your LOs lunch? I figure we can share our ideas that are either healthy, budget friendly, or easy, or all 3 is good too. 

 

I'll start. 

 

I have to pack my LO 2 snacks and a lunch. Snack 1 is a chocolate zuchini muffin, lunch is a whole wheat pita cheese pizza (WW pita baked with tomato sauce and cheese), Snack 2 is apple slices. 

 

ETA: Lets keep this thread light and fun. No flaming other what other people feed their children.

I often pack monkey platter style lunches in my 4yo's goodbyn lunch box. I LOVE all the compartments because it allows more creativity than if I had to put everything in a bag or match a container to its lid. Anyway, today I packed nori, 1 fig bar, some frozen peas, and some carrot sticks and pita chips to go with some spinach artichoke dip. Oh andaalso a small kids "yogurt" that dh bought but I never would have, lol. It's called "dairy snack" on the package! But it's like 2 tablespoons worth of yogurt. Other typical lunch items : berries, various melons, hard boiled eggs, pirates booty, raisins,

On kindy days, DD1 takes morning tea and lunch with her. The kindy is peanut-free but DD has no allergies/intolerances herself. They are also not allowed to take any sweet biscuits, cake etc.

Today was
Morning tea: rice crackers and cheese and a square of homemade muesli bar
Lunch: small container of yoghurt, a sliced peach a hard-boiled egg and bread and butter

She also likes haloumi wrapped in flat bread and cheese and vegemite sandwiches for "main course". The sides are almost always some variation on cheese, yoghurt, fruit, rice crackers and muesli bar. Oh, and sometimes popcorn which she loves.

My partner is usually the lunchbox packer, but when he was away for a week last summer, I kept notes on what I packed in the kid's lunch:

http://articles.earthlingshandbook.org/2013/08/13/a-week-of-vegetarian-lunchbox-lunches/

 

He's in third grade, and this school year his class has been having a morning snack, so he brings that as well as lunch.  On a typical day he has some sort of trail mix for snack, either PB&J or cheese and crackers (usually Triscuits) as his main dish, some sliced fruit and/or carrots, and a tiny treat such as a few chocolate chips or a small piece of any dessert we happen to have.  He got some Squooshi pouches for Christmas, and one of those filled with applesauce is another snack/side option.  (We tried yogurt, but he only likes it really cold.)  Other main dishes he has sometimes are beans and salsa and corn chips, hummus and pita chips, or veggie burger (cooked at home and packed warm, on a day when he's not taking any food that should stay cold).

I make some turkey sandwiches for my daughter and pot in a ecofriendly container. These containers have divider and good for storing different snacks. I also add some fruits in their snacks and fruit juices. My DD1 loves strawberries and raspberries while my DD2 loves eating muffin and cupcakes.
