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.

O he likes those cocktail sausages and mini scotch eggs too

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!

B likes his the same. Sandwich, crisps, small cake/choc bar and fruit juice. He used to take a yoghurt but has this at snack time now.

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.
