The search for quality kids' lunch food

The school year is almost upon us. The advance toward September also brings fall sports and packed lunches. Both of which mean, a) I will need to get more food into my kids to make up for their increased calorie use, and b) I will need to find a variety of lunch foods that they will put into their mouths instead of into the lunchroom garbage can!

Last summer I did a few weeks of research on what foods (home-made and pre-made) my children would eat, and thus would be willing to take to lunch. Here is my post on the hits and misses.

When I next go to the store, I'll see what new and exciting and potentially edible is in the snack-food aisles, and then I'll post the taste-test successes and failures.

I hear you on this struggle!! We recently had the unfortunate experience of having nothing to choose from besides lunchables. Nasty, horrific things. We intend to always be more prepared so that we don't have to face that one again!! I look forward to hearing what you come up with!
