My 2 y.o. son is switching to a new daycare where they don't have a kitchen on-site, which means I'll pack him a lunch every day. So I'm trying to think of lunch ideas that I could send with him and adapt for me and DH. I think I'll do a lot of sandwiches, noodles, and wraps.

Any other suggestions for lunches that are toddler friendly and can be adapted for grownup tastes?

Any kidn of dips are good. I slice veggies very very thinly for the kids to munch. If I make them fat, they'll just likc the dip off but if they are skinny they can bit them easier.

I make hummus without the tahini because they don't like it (well a very tiny bit anyway) but sometimes I add roasted garlic to DH's. I don't like that, but I love roasted veggies in mine, an dthe kids are starting to like that too.

I do snack muffins, popcorn all different ways, fruit salads, all different salads non lettuce based (quinoa, bean, etc...)

Hope this gives an idea or two
