Typical School Lunch

This post isn't just what Liam eats, but what we eat as a family for lunch. Liam has a hard time digesting raw vegetables so for him we modify. I will give examples of when we modify.


  • Turkey roll up: Turkey (nitrate free) rolled up with pickles, cucumber or  cherry tomatoes for Liam Savy my daughter will put mayo and mustard on the turkey then roll up either a pickle, bell pepper, cucumber, or avocado.  Sometimes for Savy we wrap the meat in Lettuce. Liam cannot eat any lettuce so he stick with just the meat
  • Nitrate free Salami
  • Nitrate free Ham
  • Nitrate free Bacon
  • Chicken legs
  • Homemade Chicken Fingers
  • Salad with veggies and left over meat (Savy eats this but Liam can't have salad)
  • Steak pieces left over from dinner
  • Hummus with carrots, cucumber, bell pepper, mushrooms, sugar snap peas, broccoli, and cauliflower. If you notice she is not a fan of tomatoes. Liam does not eat Hummus. He doesn't like it. I often wonder if it upsets his tummy since he has never liked it.
  • Jerky

  •  watermelon
  •  strawberries
  •  nectarines
  •  peaches
  •  grapes

  • Packaged Dole mandarins or pineapple in a container that is in its own juices. I don't buy the ones with syrup in them.  
  • Carrots- Liam can eat two baby carrots
  • Cucumber slices- Liam can eat as long as no skin
  • Snap Peas- Liam can eat a couple raw but I blanch them so he can have more
  • Small Bell Peppers or Sliced- Liam does okay with these as long as its not a lot

  • Fruit leathers
  • Bunny snacks
