  • School Lunch Ideas?

    My oldest son won't eat sandwiches, I'm not sure why? He will eat them at home but sure enough if I send them to school for him he just doesn't eat them. He has limited access to a microwave.

    Any creative ideas on what I can send him! I need help?! Thanks in advance!

    You could put his favorites in a tortilla. Roll it up and slice into rounds!

        my daughter loves to take salad and fruit, as well as grilled chicken with a favorite dip, you could also provide chunks of cheese and meat

            How old is your son? Since he has some access to a microwave, I presume he is 10 or older?? Get him up 10 minutes earlier in the morning and tell him to fix his own lunch.
            Communicate. It can't make things any worse!

                dear son, you have choices...
                you can either eat the school food, learn to love up on some sandwiches, or give me a menu list of what you want me to get for you, i cannot, will not, break myself in half to be creative for you, i need ideas, i need to know what you want to eat for lunch.

                  I think he'd eat the sandwich I fixed or go without.

                    Veggie sticks and ranch (or ceasar) dressing
                    Plain ham and american rolled up (no bread)
                    Sushi (I purchase the day before in the supermarket)
                    chef salad rolled up in tortilla
                    ceasar salad in pita pocket
                    fruit kebobs with raspberry jam dip
                    veggy kebobs with dressing
                    Cooked chunked ham and pineapples on skewers
                    Cooked chunked chicken and cherrie tomatoes on skewers
                    quesadilas (heated in the morning and wrapped in foil)
                    smashed bananas mixed with PB and fine diced apples spread on tortilla (one of her favs)

                      does the school provide lunch? how is the child?

                        thanks for the helpful suggestions! My son is only 9, there is no "food" given at the school only what I send in for him.. He isn't a brat and I would never ever say "this is what you get so deal with it" that's just not the way I parent. What I was looking for were some more creative things I could send in for him. So thank you for giving me some ideas!

                          back to the original thought,
                          he's IS 9. not ONLY 9.

                          at 9 he is old enough to say what he wants for lunch, old enough to shop with you and make a list. and he's old enough to pack his own lunch.

                          by the time my kid was 9 he was packing his own gear for boy scout camping.

                            I understand what she is talking about.
                            Sometimes kids dont know WHAT they want...they do, however, know what they DONT want.
                            My DD (who is an ANGEL, so NOT the spoiled child) can not figure out in the morning what she wants later in the day. Her tastebuds "are not awake yet" as she puts it, so we think about it the night before. I pose questions to her like "what were you in the mood for today?" and "Will you want that tommorow, or something else?" or "This is what I have on hand, lets decide what sounds good".
                            We also did a "lunch list" for camp this summer, complete with snacks and drinks...this way she KNEW what was coming and she decided when to have it. she picked the daily snack, drink, and lunch item from a list we put together.

                              My youngest was kinda picky when he was younger. I would send him peanut butter and jelly crackers, ham or turkey and cheese rollups, apples and peanut butter and string cheese, raw carrots and ranch dip with fruit and string cheese.... etc. He has always been so thin, I would try to find the things that I knew he would like, otherwise, I knew he wouldn't eat, and wouldn't be bothered by it in the least!

                              I have noticed that I was able to get him to eat more of a variety of things if I let him "help" prepare it. Maybe if he gets to make his own lunch, he will be more prone to eat it? That worked with my youngest. Things that he would have never eaten, he all of a sudden started liking when he helped to make it.
