I have had a bad year with sending snacks to school with my almost 5-year-old. The school is nut-free and he has dairy sensitivities. Mostly, he has been bored of all the healthy stuff I give him and only eats well when I send junkier food. I'd love to have some better ideas for camp this summer, so I'm wondering what you guys do.

We're vegan, so I send the snack for my kids to school, preschool and daycamp.

We send cereal bars (Nature's Choice are dairy free), Fruitabu fruit snacks, cinnamon graham sticks, Harvest Whole Wheats (like Triscuits), applesauce cups, carrot sticks, fruit, cream cheese (Tofutti brand) and jam roll ups on a tortilla. Sometimes they choose dry cereal too.

some that my daughter likes--
sunflower butter with crackers
Newman's own spelt pretzels
dried fruit (all kids seem to love the crunchy Just Fruit)
Clif Z-bars
popcorn
bunny graham crackers
little sandwiches (with Earth's balance or sunbutter)
berries (blueberries are pretty sturdy)
toasted seeds---sunflower, pumpkin
carrots with hummus
rolled up pieces of turkey

I'm in a similar boat, so I look forward to hearing the replies!

We're vegan (so no dairy) and the boys' preschool has a no-nuts policy, so all their snacks fit that criteria. I post about them all the time in my blog (see sig) if you want some ideas.
Also, some other good blogs to check out for ideas:
http://lunchinabox.net/ (similar restrictions in her son's preschool)
