I like to cut my daughter's sandwich with cookie cutters in cool shapes. Sometime I will make a white bread sandwich and a wheat bread sandwich and cut a star or heart or something out of both and switch the pieces. She tells me I am silly, but she loves it and so do the other kids at school.

Try some fairy bread :) Most kids here love it, it's great for parties or for trying to get kids to eat things! http://www.zdesign.com.au/eva/food/fairy-bread.html Take a look :)

You can do tortilla roll-ups instead of sandwiches. Make sure to use a thin coating of some kind of spread -- you can use spreadable cheese, mayo, etc. on the inside of both tortillas. It is often easier for kids to grab these and so they like them more, plus it is a nice change of pace from bread. Kids also like dipping anything they can, so I'd suggest investing in some tiny disposable dressing cups or just empty cups which you can fill. A great way to get them to eat their fruits and veggies.

Our children love anything that is rolled up into tortillas. We like to use whole wheat tortillas. You can use just about anything depending on what your child likes. If they like meat you can spread a thin layer of low fat creamcheese place a couple of thin slices of chicken on top, put a couple pieces of thin sliced vegetables and roll up. Or for fruit you can spread some peanut butter, sprinkle some nuts an dried fruit on top, roll it up. You can also use fresh fruit but you will need to dip it in some citrus juice to keep it from turning brown.

Try some different food like add some colour or some different taste to the routine food so that they find it different and may like it like----------- prepare some sandwiches with boiled potato,carrot,add some salt,sauce sprinkle the peppar on it cut it into different shapes and pack some finger fries and dont repeate the same food all the days as they become bore,you can even pack fruit chat or vegetable chat somedays its very easy and hope your kid likes most .
