I highly reccomend the laptop lunch system. We got one when our son started presechool and by the end of the year nearly 3/4 of the class was using them. Shop around you can usually find coupons or sales.
I'll be following this thread- DS also about 4.5 stayed for 'lunch bunch' one day last week and so we need to think about this as well. I had him help me pack his lunch thinking he'd be more inclined to eat if if he had some involvement. I am looking for a reusable container similar to the lunchable trays so I can something along those lines-cheese/crackers/treat... I know I could just send it in separate containers but the tray is half the fun
