the lunch sack dilemma

tomorrow starts mother's day out for lots of us. and while there are so many positive things that come from that...one of the things that i consider a negative is the loss of lunchtime control. i mean that loosely of course because we are packing their lunch, but we lose so many options for serving healthy options when no refrigeration or heating can be counted on for meal time. so i'm looking for suggestions from you. what tips/tricks have you found to be helpful in getting nutrition into the lunch sack of your kid???

here's some of my thoughts so far:
*pretzels & hummus or avocado
*veggie straws from costco
*sliced ham rollup
*any fruit cup that doesn't have fruit in syrup
*organic turkey hotdogs w/ tomato sauce {or ketchup she thinks}
*pimento cheese sandwich
*homemade granola bars

what else am i missing? leave some comments so we can share ideas...

{ oh and speaking of lunch sacks...the one above is the cute one i found for georgia at buybuy baby. all of their lunchsacks use vintage fabric and are insulated. and for 12.99. good buy i'd say... }

  1. there's always apples/peanut butter; celery with peanut butter with raisins on top (we call this ants on a log); carrot sticks with a dipping sauce; will be thinking of some others ...
