Calling out an APB to my crafty, not so crafty, Pinteresty, recipe clipping Mommas out there!  I neeeeeed HELP!  Lunchbox help!  My daycare announced this week that they will no longer be providing breakfast, lunch, or snack.  (OMG NOOOOOOO!!)  That was my lifesaver!  My no brainer of the day!  And they always served the best hot lunches around!  Jake ate everything, and often asked for seconds, and Livvy has been sampling a bunch of new taste sensations like raisin bread, mixed veggies, chicken, and yogurt, with total success.

So to say that I’m sad about this is really putting it lightly.  *SIGH*

I don’t mean to sound uncreative here, but here’s what I’ve got for ideas:


  • Pancakes- make a batch, freeze, and grab one, heat it, and eat it.
  • Mini bagels
  • Frozen waffles- toast and slap some peanut butter or cream cheese on it.
  • Yogurt


  • Ham, cheese, salami roll ups
  • Peanut butter & jelly (or if no peanuts allowed, other nut butter)
  • Mini ravioli
  • Meatballs & sauce
  • cheese & crackers
  • Pasta Salad


  • Goldfish crackers
  • Teddy Grahams
  • Yogurt
  • Fruit cups
  • Bananas
  • Trail mix
  • Apple slices
  • Granola bars


These were just some ideas that I’ve come up with for meals, and I would love some help out there, Mommas!  What do you send to daycare with your kids?  Keeping in mind the following rules of the game: No refrigerators (but I will put in an ice pack), and no use of a microwave.  Aaaaaaand, GO!
