Sending DD 10 to a parks & rec day camp for a week in July. She needs to bring lunch, but no nuts, nut butters, etc. due to allergies. So what can I send her with that will not spoil in the summer heat? The only thing I'm coming up with is beef jerky. But I wouldn't want to give her that every day... Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

you could do a muffin, fruit of choice, freeze a yogurt tube and wrap in foil to defrost and keep cool till lunch and a drink.

in situations like this i admit i throw out some of my nutrition rules and buy prepackaged items like cracker packs, jerky, yogurt tubes, ect... i still find organic choices but i do buy premade. So, I'm having problems coming up with homemade stuff. ( ;

Thanks for the ideas & inspiration. She likes salads & raw veggies (carrots, mushrooms, etc.) so I can give her that with either cheese cut up or edamame for some protein. No dressing though. same with the fruit, bananas, apples, grapes (I can freeze them overnight) & berries. Im going to call next week to see if they put the kids lunches in a cooler which would help. Chips & crackers are good additions. Same with the frozen yogurt. She will eat all that. Muffins are one of the only things she won't eat. Only those prepackaged tiny mini chocolate chip muffins in a bag. Oh well, it's only one week!

 Use an insulated bag and put a small frozen thing in there to help keep things cool. You can freeze fruit cups and lots of other things. I make little sandwiches using dinner rolls, lunch meat(turkey, ham, bologna etc) and a smear of butter, wrap and freeze, and it's thawed by lunch time. Carrot and celery sticks, grape tomatoes. Putting everything in that's cold will help.
