Lunch boxes

I thought we could tell each other what we put in our children's lunch boxes for school. My little girl isn't keen on meat and she doesn't eat eggs or cheese so the only sandwhiches she eats are strawberry jam,which was fine at playgroup but for school 5 days a week I think I'll need to vary what she has. I'll give her fruit,yogurts,raisins, stuff like that. But was wondering what other savoury options you guys could think of and what you all put in for your little ones?
Thanks guys xx

I do sandwiches and fruit and some type of snack thing... sometimes leftovers from dinner the night before. She's provided with snacks at school so I only have to worry about a lunch time snack. We're going this weekend to pick out a new lunch box for Aaralyn as she's been "plastic bagging" it this week Rolling Eyes

I know a boy who had tomato sauce sandwiches for lunch for over 5 years!!!

Try things on wraps or in pitta bread instead (add cucumber sticks etc to them)

Some cooked mini sausages

cant think (joseph is a good eater)

PS Girls- do you know those yoghurt tubes have nearly 5 teaspoons of sugar in them!!!

We get the Yeo Valley ones as they don't contain the nasties that other brands have. I'm off to check the sugar content though!
