Hi Libby- I hear you- my kids have never been big sandwich eaters so school lunches are always tricky! I try and cut up a bunch of fruit and cheese at the beginning of the week,so everyone can just grab them along with containers of yogurt, hummus, or some dipping sauce. Here is an article that may give you some ideas: 5 Sack Lunches Kids Love

I have found that when I put food in the lunch box that my child has to make (i.e. bread, meat, mayo & mustard) he actually eats it, because he has a part in the making of it. When I asked him why he told me that "it doesn't feel like he had a say in it before, but now that he is involved he likes it." I also will cut fruit and put a yogurt snack to dip it with.
