Hi, DD2 loves her food - she'll tackle anything :-) Am back in work full time now, and send her to the childminder. Any ideas of what kind of different lunches I could send with her? I tend to just to a big batch of sunday roast leftovers, and some fruit. The childminder giver her toast or yoghurt as a mid morning snack ... She eats the sunday lunch, no probs - but would like to send a variety of lunches really. But am a bit stuck on ideas. Help please :-) TIA x

How about making a batch of pattie-type things. So, little burgers, sweetcorn fritters, fish cakes, vegetable patties. Mix stuff with mash/egg/flour and fry. Easy peasy.

cold pasta in tomato sauce maybe with extras like peas/ham

cold pasta with tuna mayonaise and sweetcorn/spring onion

cold sliced omlette (can add cheese/peas/leftover veg) and then cucumber/pepper on the side

do you cook in the evening? if so i'd just send her with sandwiches and stuff and let her eat her main meal with you afterwards?

My ds likes quiche and egg mayo sandwiches, pasta? raisins? flapjacks?

Thanks! Never thought of sending her with an omelette... Could do that, easy to do.
We have an evening meal - but sometimes she misses this if we are running late, as she is ready to go to bed at 6pm. I just give her a quick snack before bed if that happens. So I'd rather send a 'meal' instead of a sandwich etc.

The childminder makes the other mindees some lunch, but it's usually waffles, fish finger and beans - she never makes pasta/veg etc - which is a shame. But it's convinient for her - and she's a great childminder - so I don't mind sending a packed lunch in with DD2.

Thanks all!
