School Lunch Ideas

My local MoM's group is at it again :)  This time, the question was ideas for school lunches for kids beyond the PB&J.   In addition to my sack lunch post from way back, here is a compilation from some of our fellow busy moms!
  • Beans - garbanzo, black beans, ranch beans etc
  • Tilapia fish sticks
  • Sliced meats or shredded cheese
  • Baby bell cheeses
  • Simple veggies, beets, broccoli, peas, corn (on and off the cob) red cabbage, celery, carrots, jicama, pickles!
  • Egg taco with a piece of turkey bacon inside
  • Peanut butter or almond butter on thin apple slices 
  • Hot dogs, or little central market breakfast links
  • Yogurt smoothies in a thermos
  • Tamales
  • Taco meat and a "taco shell to make your own"
  • Mini bagels with cream cheese
  • Dinner left overs
  • Small thermos with chicken noodle soup or macaroni
  • Cream cheese & jelly sandwiches
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Pasta w/ butter & parmesan or pesto (sometimes with cubed chicken)
  • Ham cubes stirred up w/ a little apricot jelly, cheese & buttered bread (cut all of it into cubes)
  • Veggie ideas: sweet mini peppers or cucumbers with or without ranch dip, spinach leaves/croutons 
  • Cream cheese and sliced banana sandwich - on a CRACKER if you kids don't like sandwiches.
  • Yogurt dip - plain yogurt with minced cucumber and fresh chopped dill - eat with bagel chips.
  • Turkey spring roll - cabbage leaf with shredded turkey, chopped mango, chopped avocado, and bean sprouts.
  • Mozzarella sticks
  • Hummus (and veggies to dip with)
  • Edamame
  • Cheese cubes
  • Mini Ritz pb crackers
  • Greek yogurt w/ honey and fruit
What do you have to add?
