OK, now that ham is off limits because it's poison naughty I am going to have to be more creative with DD1's pack lunches. She didn't have ham every day last year, she would go in phases of liking it and then not want it for a while, but aside from tuna (with mixed peppers, she's not keen on sweetcorn!) or cheese or soft goats cheese (again with peppers normally) I am a bit stumped as to what to put in her butties!

Any fabulous, healthy, easy (ish) ideas??

What about a pitta or a wrap with chilli chicken and some salad?

salami or pate with cucumber (sorry, is that worse?)
scrambled egg
egg mayonnaise
sardine and cucumber

my dh likes marmite and cucumber. just wrong, i think, but no accounting for tastes. we used to make sausage sandwiches with ketchup, omg so yum. irish sausies, so the thinner ones.

Cheese with horseradish.
Egg mayo OR salad cream.
Shiphams paste (nasty).
Philadelphia with jam.

How about wraps, cold pizza or crackers to add variation? You say she's not keen on cheese - what about giving her a mild flavoured cheese like cheestrings - then you know she would be getting the goodness of a whole glass of milk. Also, my son loves vegetable sticks such as peppers etc.

A months worth of packed lunches from the Food Standards Agency HERE.

Some are a bit weird but some good ideas smile

My personal favourite sandwich is egg mayo, might be a bit smelly but delicious
How about Chicken Mayo or Tuna Mayo.

I always give her sandwiches, a piece of fruit, yoghurt and a healthy snack.

My daughter loves Cheestrings at the moment, there are 8 different types so they never get bored and its a healthy snack. Made from 100% real cheese.

I have been asked to help to promote these and its no problem as my kid loves them.

Marmite. Yum. With salt and vinegar crisps in. (Sorry, that's my lunch)

sorry but I just love the idea of a Ham Cheese Tune. How does it go?

Inspired by the Secret Seven's teatime thread, obviously sardines! grin
