  • Cut up fruit and veggies, jelly sandwich w/ banana slices in it, mix in some Genisoy Crisps (the little rice crackers that contain soy protein and come in many different flavors). I would think that pastas with cheese or sauce would be ok with out refridgeration and would be fine served at room temp. Toast, toaster waffles (Kashi Go Lean-fruit waffles with good fiber and protein), cooked veggies- peas & corn, carrots w/avocado dip or packaged ranch. Sorry I don't have more ideas. It's ok if their lunch is more like one big giant snack as long as there breakfast and dinner are nutritious.

  • Jarred Salmon and apple sauce. Low sodium canned chicken, whip it up with a little mayo packet.

  • get an insulated lunch box and one of the small freezer packs and you can send a lot of stuff. toast with cream cheese, string cheese, lunch meat and cheese sandwich, fruit, etc. that's what i do when i'm going out and about somewhere. the lunchbox i have for them has a top big insulated part and a separate bottom part for things that don't need cooling. the small freezer things fit well in the top part, and keep the food cool enough until lunch time. hope this helps. i usually do some kind of sandwich, fruit, and crackers or chex mix, and string cheese.

  • avocados, cheese, pasta salad, canned or baby food veggies (if she'll still eat these), sandwiches (if you would eat them unrefrigerated, they should be fine for her, too.
