Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
Here are our go-to lunches that the fellas love:
grilled cheese and fruit
hard boiled eggs, toast, fruit
leftover pasta (we have pasta once a week because they love it)
I buy a rotisserie chicken each Sunday and tear small pieces off and mix them with shredded cheese, then I throw in one of those pouches that has veggies and fruits in it.
I also buy a quiche each week that has some ham and spinach or broccoli in it. I chunk it up and put it in his lunch.
We get those Applegate turkey hot dogs, too, and chop them up for his lunches, mixed with peas or carrots.
English muffin pizza
Cheese and crackers
Hummus and feta in a pita pocket
Annie's mac and cheese
Hardboiled egg and toast
Annie's Bernie O's with peas and cheese
To add to what the others have already said. I batch cook once a month- freeze it in individual portions in zip lock bags and then take one out in the morning for LO's lunch box. I'll make pasta with veggies in sauce, mac n cheese, chilli, chowder, etc.
I make lunches for all of us (me, DH and the kid) so we all just eat the same thing - fairly quick and easy. This week's lunches:
Peanut butter and jelly sandwich, macadamia and almonds
Chicken and white bean soup, lettuce wraps with black bean burgers (morningstar farms), apple slices
Rotini with tomato sauce and broccoli, orange, edamame
Pizza slice, apple slices with peanut butter, hummus and veggies
San Giorgio makes pasta that boils in only 3 minutes. I've seen shells, elbows, and penne. This makes a great quick lunch and you can do tons of variations with different sauces (butter, butter & parm cheese, marinara, alfredo), plus various veggies and meat.
Another quick cooking pasta option is tortellini. I throw some frozen tortellini and a handful of frozen peas & carrots in boiling water and cook for 4 mins. Toss with butter & parm cheese.
Hummus sandwich, cheese stick, grapes
Annies white mac and cheese mixed with peas and tuna
cheese sandwich (little mayo on each piece of bread helps it all stick) sometimes I grill it, fruit, peas
cheese stick, kidney beans, grapes (usually when he doesn't seem as hungry)
