    A few years ago I found a good lunchbox sandwich spread in Parents magazine. I don't recall measurements but it is a mixture of peanut butter, honey, sunflower seeds, raisins and shredded carrot.

    This is definitely on my brain today and I had just came up with a list of foods that even my picky Gabe will eat.

    So far I have come up with:

    egg salad on bread or in wrap
    grapes mixed in plain yogurt (Gabe's fav)
    turkey wrap
    homemade leftover chicken tenders
    homemade leftover pizza
    corn dog muffins (corn muffins with organic hotdog chunks baked inside)
    chicken quesadillas
    pizza quesadillas
    sub sandwich
    rice balls with homemade sweet and sour for dipping
    sushi (for Gavin)
    hot dog sushi (basically oganic hotdog with rice wrapped around it) for Gabe
    fruit kebobs
    homemade granola with a thermos of milk to pour it into
    quick breads
    boiled eggs
    leftover noodles
    cheese and crackers
    trail mix
    apples and peanut butter

    School Lunches - Walking Tacos and Single Cupcake Holders

    Hi and Thank you for your ideas.
    My little guy will be in first grade this year so he'll be taking lunch for the first time. We are vegetarian. I make the Bento Box ideas for him at home a lot. Just for something fun. I don't have an official Bento Box but do just fine.

    This past week I ran our Vacation Bible School here. On Sunday we made walking tacos for the snack, that is what we dubbed them anyway. A bag of nacho chips crushed while in bag, then add lettuce, cheese, salsa, tomato, sour cream if you want. They eat it right out of the bag with a spoon. It was a super hit. I'll be packing a version of it for my son for school.

    Cupcakes, I want to send an individual one. I saw a place near me that came up with an idea for a container and today saw another form of it online. However, I have no extra cash to be buying those. Any crafty ways you send a cupcake to make it portable and stay tidy?

    Thanks for you ideas on the cupcake thing. :badidea:
