  • My dd likes mini bagels with cream cheese, sometimes strawberry cream cheese. The mini ones are great and perfect sized. Also wraps, I just throw ham, mayo and some lettuce on it and wrap it up. I have one of those sandwich keepers from tupperwear and the wraps fit nicly in there(sideways) and so they dont' unwrap themselves.
    As for the soup idea, they have mini thermos' and food containers that you could put that in, or leftovers. As long as the teacher would be able to open it for her.
    Other things ive sent is a container of veggies, with another of dip. I always send yogurt too. Then some type of fruit, sometimes in a container(grapes, strawberries, mango etc) or just a banana/apple. Then something crunchy like popcorn, crispy minis', crackers, graham crackers, rice crackers, or a granola bar. I send a waterbottle of water too. Juice, very rarly.

  • Hummus and veggies and small breadsticks to dip in it. Fresh fruit with a cream cheese dip. Quesadillas (easy to make with just cheese inside and good even if they are cold). Wraps with turkey and cheese (use a tortilla wrap), pasta salad with veggies and cubed meat and cheese.
