What can I give to L for school packed lunch? I either do pasta salad if some kind or a wrap or a sandwhich, he's got a wrap today and huffed and puffed! There's not much else he can have is there? Any suggestions of anything else?
E has a packed lunch 3 days a week, 2 days I do sandwiches and one day I'll do pasta or crackers (cream crackers). I'll butter the crackers and put them in a little tub then in a separate tub put ham or chicken.
Thanks sw, he gets tuna/salmon/ham pasta which is cold, sandwich or wraps.
I might ask about taking flasks with either soup or noodles or something??? I drop him off at 8.45 and lunch is 1130 do it would still be warm but not sure where that stands health and safety wise, might see the teacher.
Going to look in my AK weaning recipient book for ideas too
You're more adventurous than us. E gets either a ham, cheese or paste sandwich depending on what mood she's in. Then she'll either have a yoghurt, raisins, grapes, a few cheddar biscuits, very occasionally a kinder chocolate.
Packed lunches I used to have
Crackers and cheese crackers in a box chees wrappe seperately so nothing went soft (when I was in secondary school I would get to pick a selection of mini cheese rom the cheese paick and mix section in the supermarket
hommous and veg sticks/ pitta
Cold home made pizza
can you tell a lot of my lunches were variations of previous dinner?
Ooo! Chicken drumsticks! Never thought of them! Or quiche!
Not really chids, we do sandwiches and wraps and pasta, its just that he's packed lunch 5 days a week and today on hearing he had a wrap he moaned, I suppose he thinks its all a bit samey.
L has either:
Ham mini pittas
Ham warburtons thins
Ham and cheese sandwich
Ham and cheese mini pittas
Ham and cheese warburtons thins
Ham and cheese roll
Ham and cheese wrap
As you can see, he is not very adventurous with his fillings.....
I'm going to use some of these for inspiration too. E only has packed lunches two days a week. She'd love cold HM pizza, and i'll do her some of that for next week.
I'm so lucky. Louie loves a picnic / paced lunch - ham or cheese or ham & cheese sandwich, sausages, cheestring or dunker, fruit and yoghurt. He can't wait for school!
He doesn't like cheese strings or Dunkers.
Iv sent a mini pork pie or sausage roll with cucumber/carrot sticks and I send those little cocktail sausages as extras too.
Roast veg cous cous
Chicken and honey mustard pasta salad, cheese pasta salad
Sandwiches - chicken and bacon
Sausage (He doesn't mind them cold)
He has those fridge raiders, and babybel.
My daughter has decided to have school dinners only this term but last term I was giving her sandwiches, or pitta breads or wraps. With a cheese string, baby bel cheese or dunkers on the side plus some chopped up veggies.
If he likes them what about things like Scotch eggs?
My daughter's school allows them to pick and choose between school dinners or packed lunches. Could he have a school dinner some days to give it a bit more variety (and save you on the cooking?)
Thanks all, scotch egg and cous cous a good idea. He has to give 2 weeks notice for school dinners and have them for 2 weeks so can't alternate iyswim x
