Hi there. My daughter is in a day camp while I am at work and I need to figure out some packed lunches that she can take. The problem is I can't come up with much variety with the constraints I have. So I was hoping some other moms would have some ideas they could share.
She can't pack anything with peanuts or nuts and there is no refrigeration (although I have an insulated lunch bag for her and ice packs--so I can keep stuff cool). There is also no way to heat food. The big kicker is my daughter hates lunchmeat.
In the past I've packed cream cheese and jelly sandwiches, bagels with cream cheese and jelly, cheese sandwiches, and cold cheese only quesodillios. Sides are easy to figure it, it's that "main" item in the lunch. Generally for sides I pack some sort of fruit and a special treat (cookie, pretzels, or something). I also pack those boxed/shelf milks (cold of course).
I think my daughter is bored with my ideas and I need a few more to change things up. If it helps, she's 7-years-old (so she has very simple, kid tastes for the most part). Some of her favorite healthy foods that are easy to pack include tomatoes, melon, apples, peaches, (most fruit really), whole wheat bagels, anything on a tortilla, cheese, and avocado. She eats other things too, that's just what comes to mind. Any ideas are greatly appreciated.... thanks!
