My children get the same things most days

1 sandwich (I was putting 2 into the eldest ones lunch box but she wasn't eating it) usually with cheese and ham/salami, or vegemite. They are boring children.

2 pieces of fruit (banana, apple, grapes, mandarin)

sometimes carrot cut up into slices

either 2 biscuits (if I haven't had time to cook) or a piece of cake or slice (homemade)

cordial or water.

Doesn't seem like much but they don't eat any more if I put it in their box.

I would do a salad or something but I don't have alot of time in the mornings to get things ready (6 kids to get ready) and I like to make sure they are fresh that day. Also they don't like alot of salad stuff (the eldest makes herself sick if she has tomato) huh.gif

Anyway there have been some great suggestions posted.

I do wonder though how the yogurt goes on hot days?

I buy things called Gel-ice they are available from any supermarket. I freeze them and slip them in the tops of my kids lunch packs and they keep yogurt cold.. I think from memory it was $5 for a pack of 3. I freeze them over night and they are good for the mornings..

I pack for my kids lunches pretty much the same as budgetbride smile.gif

My 4 1/2 yr old has started pre this year and I always gave him ham/cheese etc sandwichs. I am concerned about the heat and food poisening etc. what do you do to keep it cold? I have some gel pack thinks put is that enough?

Someone mentioned freezing sandwichs the night before. Does that work?

Love your thoughts as i have no idea.

sad.gif So sad to read a thread started by a mummy who is no longer worrying about what to send to school for her lovely children sad.gif RIP Sherri sad.gif

Sorry to dampen the thread sad.gif

Kerri do the pre prep kids keep their bags oustide? I know with Sare when she was in kindy and prep their bags were inside so the ice packs were enough. I used to freeze poppers and water too so that helped keep it cold. Now her bag is outside I am a little paranoid about ham sandwiches. We like things like peanut butter but there is an anaphalactic child so we can't this year sad.gif
