You didn't mention if you have diet restrictions, so I'll tell you what we do. I try to put a main dish, a fruit, a dairy, and a veggie. I don't buy prepackaged stuff, so I spend a lot of time trying to think of things. Hope this helps you some. I'll be
: to get more ideas myself.

-PB & J
-Ham sammies
-Chicken salad sammies
-Egg salad sammies
(the previous 2 I use an insulated container because it contains mayo and I don't give this when the weather is warm)
-Heated and put in a thermos:
*Homemade chicken nuggets
*Annies mac & cheese, or homemade
*Chicken & rice casserole
*Stir fry and rice
*Homemade soups
*Other leftovers from the night before

-Carrots, Broccoli, cucumbers, peppers or other veggies and dip
-Cottage cheese
-Dried strawberries, bananas, apples, cranberries
-Sunflower seeds
-Fruit assortments
-Yogurt covered raisins
-hummus & pita
-cheese & crackers
-trail mix (without candies in it)
-banana nut bread or zucchini bread
-tortillas folded into a triangle with different things in each fold (like ham, cheese, cucumber, with a bit of butter spread on)
-taco kit (taco meat, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, salsa & tortilla chips in different small bowls that she can combine together when she eats)
-salad kit (same as above but with salad components)
-hard-boiled eggs

If I think of other things, I'll post again.
