sandwichless lunch box ideas

Here we are again, oi!  Back to school, back to the land of the lunchbox.  There’s a joke in this house about ‘lifting the lid of the lunchbox’ but I’ll keep it sensible and stick to the topic at hand:  what to make everyday?  Nothing I suggest to the kids appeals anymore – they’ve seen it all in sandwiches and don’t want to go back there.  So, we’ve had to get creative and here’s what we have for you: 15 sandwich-less school lunch box ideas.
