Here’s another side to add to any meal. And if you already purchased a cooked roast chicken for the fried rice, you can serve the rest with this Tomato Feta Salad. It’s super easy.

Lunch 5

Shopping List:

  • Cheese & Crackers
  • Turkey rolls
  • Apple slices
  • Apple sauce or Chocolate Pudding

Those all look delicious, even for adults. I know I was a picky kid growing up, and I ate PB&J sandwiches almost every day.

PB&J is always a safe bet with picky kids. The pizza rolls sound pretty good too.

Sorta like home-made Lunchables! I'm playing Mr. Mom this week so this article was already helpful :-)

My daughter would love these!
