This is totally off topic, but I need help thinking of some good vegetarian lunches to send with my 3yo to preschool. He is going to preschool at my ILs synagogue where they keep strict kosher, and the lunches that we send need to be vegetarian. Dairy products and things like honey are okay, but any meat is off limits, as is anything that might have animal based gelatin (like most marshmellows.)
We are allowed to do nuts, so I know that nut butter sandwiches are going to be a staple, but I don't want to *only* do PB&Js. So, anyone have any other ideas? Here is what I have come up with so far (I will also be throwing in some fruit and/or veggies):
2. Bagel and cream cheese
3. Yogurt - although I am trying to figure out what "starch" I would send with it. At home I usually give him yogurt, fruit, and toast, but cold toast doesn't sound that good.
4. Maybe pita, veggies and hummus. He loves hummus, but I don't know if he would "get" what he was supposed to do with it if he just opened his lunch box to a little tupperware thing of hummus and then a bag of veggies and pita. He's only 3. Then again, there will be adults there to help out.
Any other good ideas for portable vegetarian lunches that a 3 year old would like and "get"?
