Have ideas for healthy cold lunch for summer day camp?
She really likes those pre-packaged Lunchables, but I can't afford to do those every day (maybe once or twice a week). And when I try to mimic their ingredients (crackers, turkey and cheese slices, etc.), she doesn't eat as well. She also gets bored with PB&J or turkey sandwiches day after day.
Plus, she's so skinny already (fast metabolism -- at home she eats a lot, but at school, she only nibbles). I worry that being at camp all day (vs. half day at regular school) without substantial eating will make matters worse with her weight.
So I'm seeking some ideas for cold food items I can put in her lunch. Fruit is obvious and will be included, but what else? Any ideas or recipes out there for cold main meals I can include?
