Needing lunch ideas for my 5-year-old!

Looking for inspiration: no heat lunch ideas besides sandwiches for my five-year-old


Different snacks!
Cut up different fruits and veggies. Have a “deconstructed” sandwich, bread they can dip into peanut butter, or rolled up meat and cheese.

look on line, there are so many ideas for kids lunches

Google kids bento boxes. Tons of ideas

Cheese, crackers, grapes. My daughter loves sunbutter and jam in her school lunches

My son has lots of food allergies. And the school has us send his lunch no matter what. I typically do pepperonis that habe been microwaved cuz he likes them “crunchy” or jerky, pretzels, fruit snacks, sometimes a little cereal and capri sun

My son is EXTREMELY picky when it comes to what he will eat. He gets cereal and yogurt some days. Other days I will send some pretzels or goldfish, grapes, blueberries, strawberries & yogurt.
