my 5 year old has just started school and likes hummus and seaweed rice crackers instead of sandwiches sometimes. also peaches or fruit salad in a container or the ones you can buy already in individual pots. i have also given her wraps with ham, hummus, aioli and lettuce/baby spinach. grapes, raisins, dried apricots, muffins, apple, marmite sandwiches. That's all I've given her in her first week of school!

invest in some freezer block things or whatever they're called. My girl has a few insulated lunchbags and if I put two of these blocks in her leftover food and drink bottle is still really cold after school!

I'd roast the little four year old with an apple in their mouth. Season with plenty of salt and pepper and olive oil. Once cooked, chill and then chop the infant intobitesized pieces so that they can easily fit into the lunchbox. Enjoy

Remember- the only thing better than oven roasted infant is spit roasted baby, you can have that recipe too if you would like it.

Not really an offering - but the query made me remember my daughter at about 5 yrs old going thru a 'patch' as they do and only wanting a 'honey bun' for lunch, nothing else just a 'honey bun'. All that was was a bread roll spread with a little butter and honey! I used to worry what the teacher must have thought! Luckily the phase didn't last too long and apart from that she was always a really good eater!

As a teacher of small children, can I say that yoghurt in lunchboxes is a pain in the #%*. The littlies are very easily distracted and over it all goes! Horrid to clean up off carpets!

Chicken leg, cheese cubes, fruit (apple makes least mess I guess).

Meat balls, cherry tomatoes (less mess), fruit.

Boiled egg, beer stick, fruit.

Basically anything high in protein and fat and low in carbs (sugar, starch) will keep the kid happy and full and not jumpy.
