Lunch inspiration - beyond the brown bag!

Grumblebee's post including Bento box ideas got me thinking. With kids going back to school, and with the days drawing in, sometimes we need a bit of inspiration with finding healthy lunch ideas.

This blog is fascinating. I'm not a vegan or even a vegetarian. this stay at home mom blogs every day about lunches she prepares for her little boy. You need to go back in the archives a bit, as of course her child has been on school break for a couple of months, but she's still been blogging about road food she prepares for his adventures!

Anyone else with any interesting ideas outside sandwiches for healthy lunches?

I already had it bookmarked in my favorites, it's a great blog and I've been wanting to buy a laptop lunchbox ever since I've discovered it! And I'm not a vegetarian either...

Have added it to my favourites and look forward to having a good look through it later. Although I don't think I could do vegan or vegetarian 24/7.

Let's see the basic brown bag is ham/cheese sandwich, chips, apple, cookie. What kids do not like is having to keep up with a lunch box and little containers. Kids do not like soup and no spoon. Kids do not like messy foods and they hate leftovers at lunch. Their not picky; they just like the brown bag lunch. They buy milk or juice at school; they hate luke warm beverage in a thermos.
Some kids like to trade. ham/cheese for a pbj. apple for a banana, chocolate chip for a sugar cookie. Nobody trades a sandwich for spaghetti but maybe for a meatball! lol
Schools do not put messy drippy little lunchboxes in the lost & found after lunch.
Lunch at home is a whole different story. And they know there's popsicles in the freezer.
