Mac and cheese works great for kids. you can add veggies to it. We love to travel on the cheap so we can go more often. Burritos work quite well, also. Good thinking on the granols bars. Much cheaper than pulling in to fast food places.
We do I just never used ijut I bought it used on sale site..we are not without lunch food normally I just need to break bad habits..
Today we had cheese crackers grapes and broccoli or Gpeppers
