    Ok, so it was alright when he went to school for only a few hours if he didn't eat his snack.

    However, he's been in a few full day camps and won't eat sandwiches, etc. The only sandwich he may eat is a Subway sandwich and that is if it is cold.

    So, what the hell do I do now that he's going to be in school full days in 3 weeks?

    Anyone have a finicky eater and go through this same experience? What kind of things did you pack for lunches?

    I hope this helps!

    Oh, and not sure if his school will have a microwave, but pizza pops or pizza pockets are another great idea! My foster mom used to put them in my lunch, when I was in Jr. High!
    Also, leftovers from supper, the night before are a great idea too!
    I suggest a thermos too, to pack soups!

    I hated sandwiches when I was little! Drove my mom to distraction :rofl:

    Anyways she would pack cheese/carrot sticks/celery sticks/fruit/cookies. I also liked those little cans of pasta, can't remember what they're called but I used to eat them :rofl: They had a pop top lid so it was easy to eat. What about lunchables or crackers and meat and cheese?

    He only likes the chocolate bar and crackers in the lunchables. LOL Oh, and if I packed cookies, they'd surely be eaten. haha

    He doesn't like sandwiches at all. Hey, when I was a kid my mom would shoot me for all the lunches I threw out.

    The only sandwich he will eat at home is peanut butter and jam, but I think from me talking, he knows that they are gross by lunchtime. I remember so well what they looked and smelt like. BLECH.

    He does like salads, but not the egg in it, etc.

    He's eating the canned pastas a bit more but still nothing he absolutely loves, but one thing I will definitely try.
