Especially need snack ideas, the sandwiches I have sorted!

I got some little stacker pots which seem to make any snack more appealing.
Recent lunch boxes have included:
Blueberries, mini breadsticks, dried fruit and nuts, Babybel, grapes, tubes
of yogurt.

Sandwich, banana & cut up pieces of orange/kiwi etc, yogurt & sometimes crisps or cereal bar

Sandwich, mini individually wrapped chunk of cheese, chunk of cucumber, 3 cherry toms, box of raisins, clementine and at special request I just added a few halved strawberries.

I vary with hard boiled egg, other fruit, yoghurt pot or squashem, other dried fruit, little bag of plain homemade popcorn, pitta veg sticks and little pot of houmous instead of sandwich.

Crackers and cheese, pasta, cookies the kids made then variations of the above stuff

Just remembered I sometimes make sausage rolls or pasties which the kids will happily eat cold
