    My most difficult struggle is my oldest of 3 kids is super picky, and when he protests my easy eater who are 3 and 2, follow his protest!…We are working on him, but it’s a struggle just about every day. I have just found your site in the past couple weeks and so far am loving it!

  2. Ann Garza says

    Busy with a 9 month old. Once she eats lunch, I’m too tired to
    make something for myself. It’s usually leftovers or something really easy.
    Would love some quick & healthy lunch ideas!

  3. dana monhollon says

    Struggles with lunch: my 3 kids don’t always want the same thing, and it seems to take forever to make lunch, serve and feed them, then clean up. My kids ages are 3, 2, & 7 months. I also watch a friend’s child, who is 4. Struggle for sure! Some days I don’t get to eat lunch until 2 or 3!

  4. Nicole Percival says

    I just found your site today and became a fan on Facebook! My biggest struggle is packing a variety for my husband and daughter who take child lunches and quick and healthy for the toddlers at home! Thanks!

  5. Carey says

    I agree with others that variety is my biggest struggle. After cooking dinner almost every night from scratch I get tired at lunch and end up making the same things over and over.

  6. Renee says

    My biggest struggle is having to make 2 lunches at 2 different times. Hubby comes home for lunch and kids eat at different time than him. Feels like I’m in the kitchen all afternoon!

  7. Kristy says

    Today my biggest challenge was that little tummies were not settled, and we had boring strawberry jam sandwiches with a side of yogurt. I need more in my repetoire to deal with days like this.

  8. Cassie says

    Biggest struggle is finding things that don’t need to be heated up and also don’t have any dairy, sugar, wheat, or nuts. Allergies are tough man!

  9. Sarah says

    Variety….my kids would eat pb&j every day, but my husband (who I pack 2 lunches for each day) and I get bored with the same things. He is also gluten-free, so that is a new challenge for us.

  10. Susan says

    I’m tired of the same old things for lunches. My husband works long hours and needs lunches each day….I need ideas!!!

  11. cheryl barron says

    biggest struggle? son will eat bacon, but not eggs. cereal only dry,smoothies yes, milk without chocolate -no. i have a picky eater…help!

  12. Candace Isaacson says

    My biggest problem for lunches is making a yummy, easy, healthy lunch that isn’t the same thing every day, and doesn’t cost a fortune!
