actually, I have no idea if there have been a million lunchbox threads, but this is my first time sending my no-sandwich kid to school. He's been homeschooled until this coming year, so I'd also rather not send him with a lunchbox and thermos to keep track of. Keeping up with the school bag and papers will be a huge enough challenge. So, requirements are:
Can be packed in paper or disposable plastic (not my first choice but on a temporary basis, ok)
Not a sandwich
Not needing to be warmed up
Protein will be the hardest - he is fine with many fruits/veggies but doesn't like many meats except chicken. Right now the two choices I see are cold chicken and hard-boiled eggs.
help with any suggestions is appreciated!
