Back to school--lunch box edition!

DD1 is starting 1st grade this year so it will be my first year of having to send non-heat-up-able (fancy word huh?) lunches. I feel like I'm a pretty creative lunch box packer until I realize I'm sending the same 3 things. Any ideas?

Re: Back to school--lunch box edition!

  • We have one of those thermos things that keeps the food pretty warm if you still want to send up heatable dishes.

    Otherwise we do pasta salads or sandwiches and then lots of cut up fruits and veggies.

  • Wait? $50 a month? Is that daily? Ours is almost $50/week and the food is not what I would generally call healthy options! So we pass although I hate hate hate lunch making.

  • I make homemade "lunchables" most of the time. We did pepperoni, cheese, pretzels and applesauce and a juice today. I do different combos. My DD only like a couple things they serve at school. I send money on those days.

  • Veggie sticks (or slices in fun shapes using tiny cookie cutters), crackers and cheese, pb and apples, carrots, or crackers, nacho dip (refried beans with a little bit of taco meat and cheese in a thermos) and chips, grapes or apples with vanilla yogurt to dip, tortilla roll-ups (any kind of meat and cheese), hot baked potato in a thermos with toppings in a separate container..

    That's all I have now, but I'll add more if I think of any!

  • That's not lazy, that's a good deal for food!! Ours all range from $8-10/day plus tax. I just can't justify it!

    Wtf? Do the cafeteria ladies shope at whole foods or something? That's crazy!

  • oh man we have the same problem too, too much $ to have school provide the slop. it's slop. and we are forbidden from sending PB until DS is older. WTF is left then for my boy who won't eat normal toddler staples like cheese and nuggets and hot dogs???

    so we send hummus and crackers, meatballs and edamame, homemade pizzas. salami slices, sliced veggies in fun shapes, tons of fruit, yogurts, and those fruit pouch thingies. 

    @annibes i'm totally stealing your nacho dip idea!!!

    also, what is a good lunch box that will still keep your food warm?? this is an issue i've been running into and so we often send cold food items with really limits the selection.

    No cafeteria, they just do catered lunches every day :(
    Hey you know what, and if it was organic or healthy, etc. I'd be more willing to dish out the dough but Thursdays is hot dogs and Fridays is greasy pizza + cookie (like my kid literally came home like a greaseball after we ordered it. The other days is choices like chicken nuggets, hamburgers or mac and cheese. But no fruit or veggies, etc.
