Our daughters are getting tired of sandwichs already, and it’s only the third day of school!

I struggle with having to have sandwiches every day and something hand held – easy to eat for my husband that is a truck driver

Oooh, Oooh, Pick Me! Pick Me! I don’t think I can stand to look at another day of Mac n’ cheese, grilled cheese or PB n’ J…. :O

My biggest challenge is also variety. We get stuck in the same 3 or 4 things over and over, and get bored. Hubby is also a sheriffs deputy, so is on the road all day so he cant heat up leftovers ect.

My biggest lunch struggle is time! Second runner up is that I have 2 kids with food allergies/sensitivities so I often make multiple meals!

Being in a lunch rut – something new and different that everyone likes is always hard to come up with.

Nichole August 19, 2011 at 9:37 am

I feel like I make the same things everyday because I am crunched for time. I want to mix it up a little and feel good about what I am making for my family.

I need help with having a variety of meals for my kids. Also coming up with something other than sandwiches or wraps for my daughter’s lunch box.

Reply

Shannon August 19, 2011 at 9:38 am

My two girls have different tastes for lunch, and since I am not there to see it eaten my struggle is to put food in the lunchboxes that they want to eat. Oh, and healthy and affordable! I thought I was doing good, only to find out that they had finally gotten bored with the selection, but had no ideas on what else they wanted, just something different.

My biggest challenge is finding things to give my young toddler in place of PB sandwiches.

Reply

Sandy N August 19, 2011 at 9:59 am

Biggest lunchtime struggle is to find something besides pb&j and chips to make. Everyday I ask what he wants for lunch, what kind of sandwich as well ad what to pack.

I am loving the organizing ideas posted on the site to make lunch easier. I try to organzie myself but it never sticks. It makes it hard on getting lunch ready. That is such a struggle.

My biggest struggle with lunch hour is just figuring out what we make. We end up in a rut and the kids get bored with the same old, same old.

My biggest struggle with lunch time is just adding a variety of items for a 8 and 13 year old that they both will enjoy but at the same time keeping the price down.

Reply

Karen Rivera August 19, 2011 at 10:35 am

My biggest struggle at lunchtime is finding something to eat that sounds good, but doesn’t take a lot of work. If it’s too much work, sometimes I just skip lunch, which makes me hungrier at dinner :( My kids don’t mind sandwiches or leftovers, so I feed them, and don’t eat if nothing sounds good.

Jenni Martz August 19, 2011 at 10:36 am

One of my most challenging lunch issues is figuring out what items I can freeze the night before that will keep until lunch the next day:)

Trying to get my carb-loving son to eat some fruits & veggies. My newest struggle will be what to send with him for lunch to his preschool. He’s gotten really used to a hot lunch.

I became a fan on FB not too long ago to get some ideas that would work with our lives!!

My biggest struggles during the lunch hour are my two picky eaters!! I go against all I believe and turn in to a short order cook and it drives me insane!! When this happens, I typically give up and head to get fast food because it seems easier… I need to break this habit for my children’s health and my own!

I have some fussy kids, a baby who will eat anything but isn’t big enough for a lot of things, and a husband who comes home for lunch and gets tired of sandwiches. I really should buy the book if I don’t win it one of these times!

Reply

Shannon S August 19, 2011 at 11:07 am

I struggle with finding healthy, fast, fun and yummy meals that my kids will enjoy. Since I have children to take to preschool, and sometimes get on the afternoon kindergarten bus, I need lunches that don’t require me to start making them as soon as I’m done cleaning up breakfast dishes.
