The kids seem to be living off of ham sandwiches right now as Marmite is not allowed. Just really need some new ideas as I am totally lost what to give them. I am even thinking of sandwich alternatives, just what?
cheese and pickle
shammi kebab and ketchup
grilled chicken fillets cut into strips
or any of the above in pitta bread
scope out most of the contents of a roll until you are left with the crusty bit and add yoghurt, apple and cheese, your own dip with healthy croutons, carrots, etc..mash an avocado and add garlic, tomato and add to a ramekin dish...soda bread with cream cheese and cucumber, chicken drumsticks cooked in honey/garlic/soy sauce/orange zest/ oil paste, or plain drumsticks if they like plain chicken, cold left over roast meat sliced and added to a pitta bread, along with lettuce, yoghurt, basil/coriander whatever fresh herbs you happen to have, thin slices of tomato, squeeze of lemon juice and freshly grated pepper, can use sausages or whatever you have left even cold spag bol if you have any....quiche and carrot cake, fruit in natural juice in a tupperware dish...can't you tell am a frustrated wanna be chef (not) and raisins and any dried fruit..
Xena - I think it depends on the child. Some children are fine with marmite, others like my dd it casues a reaction. There are so many foods that are good for us that aren't necessarily right IYKWIM. It helps to look at the diet and you can usually see triggers.
To add to other ideas, I also do cold eggy bread/French toast, homemade waffles or pancakes, Spanish omelette, leftover potato wedges, meatballs, homemade chicken nuggets. I did try rice balls (just cold rice pressed into little balls) but understandably it didn't do much for DS1. Also breadsticks or celery with cream cheese as a dip.
