Preschooler Lunchbox ideas..?

(6 Posts)

My DD 2.9 is a very fussy eater and lunchbox usually consists of ham sandwich with carrot sticks, yoghurt, fruit etc.

Trying to add a bit of variety and wondered what others packed as an alternative to sandwiches? Pre-school is strictly nut and coconut free and fairly strict on healthy options.

Any ideas would be gratefully received!

Cucumber and pepper sticks
Baby Bel
Rice cakes with hummus
Cold tortilla
Hard boiled egg?

Thank you. Do send cucumber and pepper sticks sometimes along with baby bel. Hummus is a no go as she won't touch it now despite previously loving itangry Perhaps I could try rice cakes or similar with cream cheese..? Hadn't thought of boiled egg, thanks smile

Pasta salad?
Crackers and cheese
Tbh I don't vary my pre schoolers lunch much

Thanks Downstairs. We go for the odd pasta salad. It's so hard when she won't eat anything! Thought I might try wraps too for a slight variation on the boring old sandwich!

I've got some great bento type lunch boxes for my two little ones, and do a little selection of picky things like:

Pizza scrolls
Savoury muffins

There's a website called Eats Amazing, which has some great suggestions
