I need some ideas, E is getting bored! Today he's got one of those Warburton sandwich thins, I was going to put soft cheese/cucumber in but he decided he wanted jam. He has also taken a pot of grapes, a cookie, half pack of pom bear crisps and juice carton.
What do you pack for yours?

E always has the following:
Sandwich or wrap - Salami, cheese, ham, jam, marmite, pate whatever I have in!
Crisps - One packet lasts her about 3 days
Choc/cereal bar - ANything thats ok offer
Fruit - Raisins, pot of raspberries/strawberries/grapes or a banana or a smoothie
Plus her water
Ive tried sausages/sausage rolls or crackers but she isnt keen

I put in either tuna pasta/wrap/sandwich, cucumber/carrot sticks, a yoghurt, a piece of malt loaf/crabsticks/breadsticks
I don't put fruit in as he has bannana with breakfast and they get a piece of fruit at snack time.

Rose has today, a brown roll with ham, a hot cross bun and a yoghurt plus her water. Other favourites are individual malt loaves and satsumas. She's not allowed any choc or anything with nuts in at school

A sandwich - one slice of bread with ham or marmite
Then 2 of the following
mini sausages/sausage rolls
bit of flapjack
bit of cake
2 jaffa cakes or the like
plus a drink
Not a huge varitey of things, fussy little buggers!
Actually O (6 years) has started occasionally taking a little pot of pasta with cucumber mixed through instead of a sandwich sometimes

Quite boring here
A sandwich or wrap
Babybel or similar
Yoghurt and fruit
Sometimes cocktail sausages instead of babybel
I should really think about mixing it up a bit but my son is so fussy

Usually a wrap, either chicken or cheese.
Cherry tomatoes, carrot sticks, cucumber or a mix of these.
Boiled egg/mini breadsticks/cocktail sausages occasionally.
Small fromage frais
Fruit/occasionally a cake or fruit flakes instead.
Squash to drink.
The pasta idea is good, E loves pasta I never think to make it for his lunchbox. He doesn't like meat so sausages/sausage rolls are out but things like flapjack and malt loaf would be good for a change! ta x

E has packed lunch 2 days a week.
Sandwich, 2 slices of bread with either ham or tuna.
Packet of squares or hoola hoops
Grapes or strawberries
Apple or Banana for her break time
Sometimes a cereal bar.
Mine always have a sandwich/wrap/bagel, yogurt, fruit and a drink then I add either a packet or fruit flakes, mini cheddars, malt loaf, cereal bar, brioche rolls or something similar. I have done pizza, pasta etc before but tend to order a school dinner if there not eating as much at home and want a warm meal. Sometimes will get sausage rolls, chicken satays etc to try to mix it us as I'm sure it can get boring otherwise!

Sometimes sandwiches (cheese, ham, humous), cheddar and crackers, pasta salad, soup, flat bread or bread sticks and humous, she always has a pot of cucumber and tomatoes as she insists,, 2 types of fruit, yoghurt, crisps, fruit chew bar, raisins, home made fruit muffins. Ocassionally she will take a smoothie too. I always give her water rather than juice or squash for nursery.
