veggies
fruit
crackers

side ideas:
soup?
Honestly your list is pretty comprehensive. Maybe new dips for with the veggies (hummus, kefir flavored with garlic and chives...)
fruit salad instead of just fruit

main ideas:
hand held pot pies
stuffed buns
wraps
pitas stuffed with chicken salad or egg salad etc.

I am not crunchy enough for this forum. Everyday I get a little crunchier though! :
