What do you like to put in your kids' school lunches?

How about snack ideas for kids who buy lunch but don't really eat much? Thoughts?

My boys are pretty picky unfortunately so they tend to have the same things over and over. I usually pack a sandwich of some kind but sometimes I'll put in leftover dinner if they really liked it (we did chicken and rice last week and both boys begged to have it for lunch. heated it up and put in their thermos and it was a hit!). I usually put in either a yogurt, applesauce cup, or pudding cup and then add a little treat like a cookie or fruit snack. They also get a piece of fresh fruit each day.

Erin,

Are you looking for snack ideas for after school? I know my boys come home from school just famished! Some days I think they are in such a hurry to get outside and play that they eat as fast as possible (which means that they eat hardly anything!).
