cheese and vegemite sandwich- wholemeal bread
orange
squeezy yoghurt
banana bread which we made yesterday.

Banana bread was not eaten, for some reason I thought it would be nice to sprinkle some demerera sugar ontop before I baked it but it was like eating it with sand on top. Don't try it!

It's Friday, or "junk day" as we call it

I love Fridays - I hardly have to make a thing!

They both took a sandwich - that's it.

School provides fresh fruit for morning tea, then they all have icypoles at lunch time in hot weather.

some dried fruit and one small piece of licorice
water

#19 idle

Posted 24 February 2012 - 09:12 AM

All 4 take the same thing.

Mandarine + kiwi fruit for fruit break

grapes, rice cakes with vegemite, popcorn,  nectarine for recess

Ham, cheese, lettuce on wholemeal, banana, cherry tomatoes, carrot sticks and banana muffin for lunch.

Water bottle and $1 for canteen.

They have "free fruit and veg" all day in class which means they can eat as much of either as they want throughout the day so I always make sure they have the extra in case they feel like it through the afternoon between lunch and home time.

Amall tub of peaches

But before I get shot down for starving my child, she is 17 and that's is all she wanted. She may get something from the canteen if she took money, but I'm guessing it will just be the peaches.

slices of watermelon
a navel orange cut into wedges
carrot sticks
a handful of peanuts (yes we take nuts to school)
a happy cow cheese wedge

she usually has variations of this lunch- just different types of fruit & different sandwich fillings. Also sometimes yoghurt, sometimes a packet of 'rice wheels' or 'tiny teddies' & sometimes crackers with pieces of mersey valley cheddar (her favourite).
