Aloha Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. Every Friday (well, ok, almost every Friday) I ask a simple question for you to answer--nothing that requires a lengthy response. 

My son doesn't like peanut butter and he doesn't like meat. I've been sending him to school with bagels and cream cheese.  I need something else.

Any suggestions for meatless sandwhiches or other bag lunch items OTHER without peanut butter or meat?

If you have a blog and would like to post your own question you can leave your link at An Island Life and Thrify and Chic Mom.


  1. Well, I sympathize since my kids can't eat meat or nuts, beans, etc.

    Have you tried wraps? Try eggs, veggies or cheese. Does he enjoy veggies? I make a lot of calzones or pizza pockets with just sauce and cheese (since he can't have any meat). It might sound complicated, but you can make up a bunch ahead and freeze them. Have you tried simple pastas or pasta salads?

    My kiddos have PKU & a very restrictive diet, so we have many alternatives and an arsenal of thermos and other containers to keep food hot, cold and safe.

    good luck!

  2. that is tough I like Mozzerella, basil and tomato!

  3. Ugh, I am in a similar situation. My little guy must have nut free and dairy sandwiches (kosher school). We do cheese sandwiches, Have you tried soy butter or sunflower butter? We also are trying greek yogurt since they are high in protein. My son refuses most items, so I understand. Good luck.

  4. Take a look at some of these and see if you get any help.
    When you click on the lunches the descriptions are below.

  5. I used to pack crackers, cheese and either pizza sauce, mayo or mustard so he could "build his own" mini snackers (sort of like meatless "Lunchables".

    Carrot and celery sticks (Bugs on a log: Celery with peanut butter in the middle and a few raisins for bugs was popular) along with an apple or banana (you could add a small container of peanut butter mixed with honey as a dipper).
