Ham = bowel cancer
Tuna = mercury poisoning also fish isshoos
Cheese = Too much dairy, breast cancer
Jam = banned

I'm running out of ideas

you mean you don't make your own lentil and beetroot hummous?

it won't kill them, but they'll have no friends for farting like trumpets the rest of the afternoon.

lettuce or a carrot grin

oh btw, I got conned by ds2 into doing sausages (err, yes, hot ones, grilled that morning and stored in flask hmm) last winter.
He desperately wants hot food but has to have packed lunches because of his food intolerances.
I, on the other hand, amd developing a child intolerance grin

hmmm warm hummous isn't exactly a proper sandwich is it?

giiglewitch we've been told that hot food in flasks isn't allowed (health and safety)

gigglewitch Mon 17-Aug-09 21:04:40

ffs shock

You'd better get the school to write a list of what they can have then. Btw, I wouldn't actually recommend that anyone sends sausages in flask a la ds2. Your house stinks of - well - sausage. All day. Bleurgh.

sushi from ethically source fish.

i mean how hard it is to pull together some darling little seaweed and fish swiss rolls in a cath kidston lunch box. you have to think outside the lunch box [tinkly laugh]

I know!! We've spent ages getting ds1 to eat ham sandwiches to go in his lunches for school - now what?!

Home grown organic tomatoes?

Mars bars?

Golden Wonder, cheese and onion crisps. Can't beat it.

<<other brands are available>>

gigglewitch Mon 17-Aug-09 21:16:09

don't forget you need to stock up on fruit shoots wink

Fresh air! (so long as you live 100km from nearest B road and not on a flight path)

Peanut butter grin

Paolosgirl Mon 17-Aug-09 21:22:25

I resorted to digging sticky Vegemite out of a jar that's been in the fridge for aeons for their sandwiches tonight. Do the same for yours - they'll love you for it! <mwah ha ha ha>

Greggs sausage roll inbetween 2 slices of wholemeal bread.

Shellseeker Mon 17-Aug-09 21:29:42

Peanut butter's banned in case someone has an allergy (fair enough), crisps too unhealthy, ditto chocolate biscuits...
beansprouts, anyone?

GrimmaTheNome Mon 17-Aug-09 21:31:18

You mean you're not roasting a joint of beef for their sarnies?

Shellseeker Mon 17-Aug-09 21:36:09

Why is jam banned, btw? Too colourful?

TheCrackFox Mon 17-Aug-09 21:40:15

Beef = too much saturated fat.

How about an organic lettuce sandwich? Don't all children love that kind of food? hmm

Shellseeker Mon 17-Aug-09 21:43:28

But what if the organic lettuce had an organic little slug in it? Are children allowed to eat slugs? Surely the slime content is too high?
