Thanks! A typical lunch for them now is either a ham sandwich or peanut butter, applesauce, rice cake type crackers, fruit cups, cheese sticks, chips etc. They do like chicken salad and I found rice crackers they can eat it on and I'm planning on making the chicken salad with avocados or veganaise (the one without soy or eggs). I know I can give them an apple and they do like veggies but not without dip and they don't like hummus or almond butter. I know as their taste buds change it will be easier to find things they like but I'm worried about the first week!
Not having kids, myself, I'm not sure what you would normally send in their lunch pails (or whatever they call them these days)... For myself, I enjoy a chicken drumstick, or other piece of cold leftover roast, etc... Rice wraps, filled with various things might also work.
Best of luck!!! ~ Hen

My whole family will be starting this next week and since this is just another layer to a food allergy journey that we've been on for a year now I'm not too worried about meals but the one thing I'm struggling a little on is kid friendly lunches that I can pack for them. They're not real picky but no way are my little ones going to go for a salad in their lunch box! They also don't have access to a fridge or microwave during school. Any ideas?
