Wholemeal cream cheese sandwich and then some sort of combination of:
Cherry tomatoes
Carrot sticks
Blackberries(since they are growing at home, I wouldnt pay the exhorbitant price for them)
Kiwi fruit
Sugar snap peas
Anything else interesting i find on special at the shops

A piece of fruit, usually an apple, pear or banana

That said I am not always 100 percent on exactly what is in there since they make their own lunches, i did notice that DS2 has put banana slices in his sandwich for tomorrow Tounge1.gif

cheese and vegemite sandwich- wholemeal bread
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

meat pie
tub of grapes
packet of wheelies

This is her friday ritual.  She eats well all week just so she can have junk day!! Wish I had her will power!

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.

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.

nothing. She had canteen lunch. A highly bad sausage roll and a paddle pop. She did take plum, grapes and peach for recess/fruit break.

The 3.5yo had 4 wholegrain crackers with cheese, peach, grapes, banana, cereal bar and an apple.

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
a cheese spread sandwich
bottle of water

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).
