    What Did You Pack In Your Kid's Lunch Box Today?

    Primal Fuel
    I saw that post on smarties' sandwich, and since I just took a plunge to provide all the food for my kid while she is in school and dayhome, I would really appreciate a thread where we can share what actually goes into kid's lunchboxes and they actually eat!!!

    My daughter is 5.5 yo and she is a carb fiend, so my biggest challenge is meat and proteins.

    Lunch Box 30 Jan 2012:

    dehydrated sweet potato and jikama chips (school snack)
    salad leaves, steamed brussels, cauli and broccoli with ~ 2 oz of no-spice steak and 1 boiled egg
    1/2 blueberries and raspberries with 1/2 cup of 3% fat nothing added plain yogurt
    4 cups chopped fresh veggies medley

    Leftover: ?

    I dice chicken breasts and stir fry them in coconut oil with a dash of sesame oil (for flavor) and a sprinkle of sesame seeds, then I divide the chicken into single-portion containers. I take a container to put on my salad, and give my son a container in his lunch (in place of a sandwich). He also gets apple slices and cheese cubes. I'm trying to wean him off of grains, at least for breakfast (bacon and eggs) and lunch.

    No kidlets here, but this is a standby for when I take my lunches: leftover meat, sliced or shredded (there's always leftover meat in the fridge), lettuce leaves, tomato, cuke, a smattering of whatever other veggies are in the fridge that day, yogurt based dip/ sauce, and a handful of fruit. With that, I can decide at lunch whether I want wraps, a salad, or to eat everything piecemeal.

    Sliced turkey breast or chicken, mozzarella cheese, carrots, celery sticks or cucumber, and a fruit of sorts (apple, kiwi, pear or banana). I've been keeping it simple for my 2 school age kids, but they are getting bored, so I'll be watching this thread for ideas!

    My kid took one bite of Scotch eggs, and declared them YUCKY. So, my husband had the 1.5 that were left over for his lunch today. I thought they were great.

    this is our second week at school, so i'll list what they've had so far. mine eat dairy (and some grains but i'm trying to reduce that as much as possible).

    coleslaw made with my mayo. side salads. quiche made with nitrate free ham as the base. chocolate custard. chicken drumsticks. spring onion dip.cheese crackers (fail). apple muffins, ham scones (i think you call these biscuits). both had wheat but not much cos i put loads of apple cooked in butter and cinnamon, and ham in.
