I hate doing lunches...I don't want to put a lot of effort into it. Dinner usually takes an hour or more to prep/cook...one time

I rely on bp&j, but my 15 mo can't complain too much. We also do appetizer type lunches of some whole wheat crackers, cheese, apple sauce or mandarin oranges. It's easy to "make' and it's finger food.

My DD loves cheese quesadillas. I make them in a toaster oven or on a skillet. Just put some shredded cheese in a tortilla, fold & melt. Then I cut them into strips and we dunk them in salsa. Takes about 5 minutes to make and clean up is easy. I also do cheese & crackers for lunch with fresh fruit, and pasta with butter & cheese with a veggie. LOL, can you tell I have adversions to meat right now?

For the kids, what about homemade "lunchables?" Get some crackers, some cheese cut into cracker size (so a slice of american in 4 pieces or some cheddar), and some deli meat? My nieces love that and it's so easy! Add a piece of fruit and a drink and it's a full meal.

thanks for some ideas ladies! I've been horrible at eating lunch, myself....I have aversions to sandwhiches...I usually have an early dinner and then some kind of "snack" before bed. I feel so guilty about skipping lunch sometimes.

For my son lunch usually consists of a pb&j sandwich (half) and a piece of fruit, or a cup of Easy Mac and a cup of fruit, etc.

cheese toasties!! just split an english muffin in half and cover each half with cheese slices (we slice cheese off a block, i prefer medium or sharp cheddar) then pop them under the broiler or into the toaster oven unitl the cheese melts and the edges of the muffin are a little toasty (about 3-4 mins)! sooo easy and soooo good (i'm eating one right now)! lol. we dip them in brown mustard and frank's red hot. they are also great served with tomato soup... a spin on the run-of-the-mill grilled cheese and without all the butter (you won't miss it, i swear!)
