Re: Packed Lunches

my 2 bean-heads love cold chicken nuggets and ketchup for dipping. (i can pack several days at once) the different brands make a difference though. some are not as good cold. another hit, haven't done it in awhile though, is rolled tortilla with sandwich meat and cemented together with cream cheese. seems to work best if it is rolled in foil. spagetti in a thermos is the other fave though.

Re: Packed Lunches

I make homemade mini pizza crusts and freeze them, then the night before I take them out and top them and bake them. I then either send them cold in the morning or warm them in microwave before they head out. We only eat homemade bread here, and my DS loves just a few slices of fresh bread with his dairy free/soy free butter on it. I also do tortillas with cut up chicken, cheese, and etc. in them. My DH likes ranch, chicken, lettuce, tomato, and cheese in his. I love to send applesauce, apples with peanut butter, grapes, carrot sticks, and other things. My kids really like when I freeze yogurt and send it along so it is half thawed by lunchtime giving them something similar to frozen yogurt. LOL! For desert we all like pudding cups (frozen pudding cups are tasty too). I make batches of cookies and freeze the dough in little balls, so I can bake them the night before or in the morning which gives my kids yummy fresh cookies.

Re: Packed Lunches

I love Bentos! We just started them here..I dont do nothing fancy...I work overnights so I just want my kids to eat HEALTHY! And packing Bento style sure does allow that! I am home for lunch time but I also send them a nice little bento snack to grandpas when mommy is working!

Re: Packed Lunches

My 5-yr old loves celery sticks (the only veggie he will voluntarily consume). Pack it with a dipping sauce, it's yummy and crunchy for the kiddies.

Re: Packed Lunches

we love the yogurts that you freeze and then they thaw by lunch time. they keep other things in the lunch cold, and you get a yummy yogurt out of it too!

Re: Packed Lunches

Curries make great leftovers & unless they contain eggplant, freeze really well. They're also very economical & tasty.
