What can I put in my 6 year olds lunchbox ?

I usually give him a sandwich, a cheese string, a piece of fruit and maybe a cereal bar or a biscuit.
He never eats a whole sandwich. I just don't know what to give him as he is a rather fussy eater.
Any ideas will be very appreciated !

Let him make the sandwich.
It's always better to eat what you cook yourself.

Introduce him to figs and dates, nuts and raisins

@aarenace,
First, he'll eat it if he's hungry.

Second, don't start pampering him because you'll be sorry down the road.

Third, make a list of what he likes to eat and go from that.

And Joe's got a great idea - if he makes his own sandwich, he'll be likely to eat it.

Also, maybe he doesn't have a big appetite.

Maybe change the sandwich up with a piece of leftover pizza or something leftover that can be eaten cold.

Are you giving him juice boxes?

Have you asked him what he'd like for lunch?

@aarenace,
Our kids like it when there's some variety, and remember that kids just don't eat the same portions as adults.

Some suggestions: Tortilla rollups (ham and cheese, jelly and cream cheese, PB&J, etc.). You can buy tiny containers to include dips, so that carrots and ranch or similar items are possible.
