cold roasted chicken wings and some kind of rice or pasta salad with veggies? That's my kids standard packed lunch for school trips (they have hot dinners at school; our school has an exceptionally good kitchen and cook)smile

Would wraps work? My two like ham and houmous in their wraps. I have also used Warbertons sandwich squares which my kids call cracker sandwiches, they don't see them as bread.
I have also done cold pasta in pesto which generally goes down well.
I keep meaning to go back and find some of the baby led weaning recipes I used to make because there were cheesy vegetable bakes that would really work well in a packed lunch.

Ds used to have something like a teacake, cheese chunks, carrot sticks and a yoghurt.

He has now discovered marmite/jam/peanut butter and is fine.
