    Advice On Daughter Please!

    Advice On Daughter Please! 3rd May 05 at 9:57 AM
    Hi There

    Not sure if this is the right place for this :confused:

    My daughter is 10 and quite fussy with food etc.

    For her packed lunch I normally give her a sandwich/roll with either marmite, cheese, ham or choc spread(once a week max). She also has a piece of fruit, squash, low fat crisps and raisins in a bag. Reading all your suggestions-Im now unsure whether this is a healthy packed lunch

    She eats well at home and eats her 5 portions of fruit and veg a day etc, we dont have take aways and I make everything from scratch. All meals are what I call "normal" meals, roasts, chops, toad in hole, spag bol, curry, chilli, cheesy pasta, etc, etc. Normally all meals are served with potatoes and at least 2 veg, unless pasta or rice etc.

    I was thinking about cooking up some chicken pieces and doing rice/pasta & chicken for her packed lunch, but unsure how I should store this, can I freeze it etc etc???? Also, was thinking about making some HM sausage rolls & quiches-but have never made these before and was wondering again-how do I make these and how should they be stored??? Also the cheese straws???

    If anyone can suggest any other ideas-I would be truly grateful!!
