Just packed DH's lunch.  He isn't a child, but he really should eat with a bib, so I'm going to count it.

Mostly leftovers from party this weekend.
Sweet and spicy meatballs
Vegetable crudite with homemade ranch bacon green onion dip
Strawberries, kiwi, pineapple and a clementine
Cheese (Muenster and Cheddar) and crackers
Allergic to soy, egg, tomato, apple, cherry, peach, pear, nectarine, canteloupe, watermelon, severe OAS to others, insect bites (severe to horseflies), various drugs, way too many environmental allergens, and asthma.

This was DH's lunch today.  May or may not work for kids, but my kids would eat it and a lot of kids like "dipping" foods.

Just a container of guacamole and a bunch of stuff to dip in it.  Carrots, sliced bell pepper, cherry tomatoes, tortilla chips and some waffle pretzels, grilled chicken strips and some pepper jack cheese cut into sticks.  Stuck a plum in there as well.

He was a big fan, said he would have it again.  Pretty low prep (I would probably use leftover homemade guac if I did it again, I just happened to have a container of the good premade kind that needed to be used.)  Other than that, just chicken on the George Foreman and slicing.  Keeps well with an ice pack, doesn't need to be reheated, can be eaten relatively easily while doing other work.
