    Children's lunches photo thread

    Primal Fuel
    Hi
    I thought id start a thread with photos for kids lunch ideas, since i've seen a few people ask lately.
    I too would love more ideas. I did forget to take a photo this morning of my sons lunch box for his first day of school, but will start doing it tomorrow.
    Today I sent with him:
    Apple
    Banana
    Cheddar cheese sticks (just cheddar cheese) wrapped in slices of ham
    Lamb meatballs (my butcher makes these with just ground lamb and herbs and spices)
    Carrot sticks
    Sliced cucumber

    I suspect lots will come home, as he will be too busy having fun with his new friends, but I guess eventually ill get the amount right.
    Unfortunately its a nut free zone, so lots of things I would give him at home, I can't send to school. I get that kids have allergies, but it bugs me, as all of those muesli bars, and chip packets say they have come in contact with nuts etc, but yet they are still allowed, I wish they banned that garbage, but oh well.

    Thankfully he is happy to eat cold meat.

    I had made up a lunch box for my toddler with the same, except I also gave him guacamole since I just made it.

    My son is in a nut-free class this year (such a staple for us!) but thankfully I can pack nuts in his lunches. I found it ironic that they put the GFCF kid in a nut free classroom to boot! They do let me send in special treats (nut-free) for parties, etc....otherwise the kids can only eat approved nut-free products free from cross-contamination.

    Thanks Shelli

    Since I am an awesome wife I made my husband up some containers too. Normally he will grab a meal from the freezer, or take leftovers from dinner, then just finds other stuff to take himself. Fruit is supplied at his work.



    He is also taking some chilli I made loaded with veg. There is always something frozen in the freezer for his lunches.

    Where do you get these containers? My husband likes a lot of veggies and fruit too but he only wants to carry a small lunchbox. With something like this I could load him up with lots of good stuff and it doesn't look too big.

    The smaller ones for my husband are EcoBots, Amazon have them, or direct from EcoBots if you are in the US.
    They are not too big at all.
