    we are getting ready to travel for 7 days and school starts 7 days after we get home

    I have a list of ideas:

    cheese & crackers
    trader joes mini tacos (she has access to a microwave)

    I just bought both kids two "bento" style tupperware type
    boxes for lunch that fit inside their lunchboxes and are all reuseable
    so no more plastic bags!!! Yay!

    but dd is only supposed to have peanut butter once a day
    and I have to send two snacks too

    I am soooo out of ideas!!!

    TIA!!!

    we do different types of sandwhiches or rollups (when i can find the gf tortilia shells), fruit, some kind of snack type treat and chips or pretzels or something simmilar...she picks either the treat or chip/pretzel for snack and has the rest at lunch ...so far now that we found the udi's bread she is happy with this she gets stuck on one sandwhich for a week or so then another then another so that changes it up some

    My family likes the "bento" presentation style, but my son is such a PB&J kind of guy that it can get rather boring.

    To switch things up, I will sometimes just include meatballs (with bone-shaped picks) and a cup of dipping sauce. I also do lunchmeat roll ups. Another fav is an "unlunchable" - with GF crackers, sliced cheese and lunchmeat.

    As sides, I'll also include things like carrots, grapes, celery, dried fruit, yogurt, pudding, fried rice, nuts... etc.
