We go through a lot of raisins string cheese and yogurt for lunches to....
Another thing I make is my own trail mix for a little snack.
What do you put in your trail mix?

Re: Packed Lunches

We go bento style a lot too. The kids have Yumboxes so they don't have to struggle with opening various containers. We pack a veg (edamame, carrots, peas, jicama, salad greens if they have a pink stem so DD will eat them, anything leftover...), a fruit (sometimes I pull from the freezer and they're thawed by lunchtime), and some main - leftover, hardboiled eggs, rice cakes and quacamole, crackers and cheese, apples sliced with nut butter and raisins spread between the slices. I try to avoid sending the same thing 2 days in a row.
That said, it's funny to see what comes back eaten and what not. I pack identical lunches for the 2 kids. Often one will eat all of the sandwich but little fruit/veg, and the other does the opposite. There's no predicting what will work and what won't.

Re: Packed Lunches

Quesadillas are easy to make and taste fine cold, warm meals we do beans, corn, a meat, and rice in layers it's super good and filling for lunch, speghetti is good cold or hot, homemade chicken soup, left overs if there is any.

Re: Packed Lunches

My older one also loves the plain ole routine - sandwich with turkey, apple, chips, drink and whatever else I add for snack (popcorn, string cheese, fruit snacks). I tried to change it up but it did not go over well.
