Since his food sensitivity test showed a reaction to all sorts of foods, we've decided to give DS1 (5) packed lunches from September. Any suggestions to get away from sandwiches? Have thought of pasta salad/couscous/quiche but could do with a few more ideas.

If my dds don't fancy sandwiches they sometimes have a little pot of dip (hoummus or tsatziki) with carrot sticks, cucumber sticks etc and a couple of crackers.

Or (and I realise this isn't very "Mumsnet" of me) a veggie sausage roll and pot of salad.

Or I sometimes make them little pies in jam tart tins, with lentils and vege inside them and a pastry top.

Oh some good ideas! He's a great eater and used to love school dinners, but his behaviour and concentration had been a problem so we had a food sensitivity test. He's also very sensitive to MSG which I didn't realise is in stock, gravy granules etc. So if he had something like shepherds pie, gravy, orange juice, jelly, then he could be off the wall by the afternoon!!
