I would love other opinions on healthy snacks (essentially for lunchboxes)
My son is 6 and hates standard fruit/veg in his lunchbox.
He likes carrots, pickles, cucumbers….but every day it gets boring!
At home he will eat apples.
He hates bananas!

Take your kid with you to the supermarket give him the shopping list and let him choose the fruits you would buy.

Would your son eat dip and crackers? Perhaps hommus. He could dip his carrots and cucumber in it.
Some tiny pancakes with jam? Mini quiches or mini vegemite scrolls? Sultanas and pretzels?
Another great idea is cutting sushi rolls into smaller manageable slices.

Good luck!

I am in same boat. Children don't have enough time to eat at school. They want to play as well. He eats half of his lunch which is normally everything healthy rest he eats when home. I don't worry much. He loves sushi at school.
