Since tomorrow is the first day of school here I thought I'd share what I put in my kids' lunches. I have a son in 4th grade and a daughter in 2nd grade. I can try to do this every day if anyone is interested. I let them pick out what they want with my guidance and discretion of course. They have insulated lunch boxes with smaller boxes that go inside with ice packs in the lids, and they have drink containers that I fill with Mio flavored water. They also have access to a microwave at school, so some days they might have stuff they will warm up.
Son's Lunch: whole wheat wrap with 2 slices of turkey, 1 slice of cheese, spinach, and hummus (for the glue); Triscuit crackers, cherry tomatoes, more hummus for dip, raisins, and a watermelon smoothie. For his morning snack he has an apple.
Daughter's Lunch: same type of wrap, celery, carrots, cherry tomatoes, ranch dressing for dip, raisins, and a watermelon smoothie. Her teacher has not said anything about snacks, so I'm not giving her one until I find out if they're allowed.
