Here are 10 great sandwich alternatives to keep the kids happy and fed.

1. Toad in the hole: A good filling lunch time meal for kids.

  • Great ideas and I’m sure they will grace many a table in the future, however a lot of these won’t get past the School PC police and your child may go hungry. Check with the gestapo first.

  • My son loves fried rice, great idea! I find he wont eat the quiche by lunch time, because and i quote ‘it smells funny’. Will eat hot and fresh straightaway but not at school.

  • Some nice ideas, but most of these my kids prefer to eat warm, which makes them not as suitable for the lunchboxes

  • My son would never have taken these to school as they would have made him ‘different’.
