My biggest struggle is lack of a microwave for my kiddo to use, and variety.

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!

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!

I am so tired of rotating between pb&j or “homemade lunchables” for my kids’ lunch. I am ready for some variety!

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!

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.

We are in the process of transitioning to a GFCF diet and my kids are getting tired of eating leftovers.

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!

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.

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!

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.
