Any suggestions

OK so my first child is about to start 1st grade, which for us means it is her first year that she will have lunch at school.  I have been trying to brainstorm ideas of what to pack in her lunch.  The school is a peanut free school, which means no PB&J.  I was wondering if any of you have suggestions of what you pack for your kids, or what you think might work well in a six-year-olds lunch.  Preferably on the healthy side, but not really big on visible veggies.

That is an excellent question, and we are faced with the same dilemma! We might substitute cream cheese for peanut butter in a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Then send her with some fruit and a dairy product like cheese or yogurt. You can stick an ice block in her lunch sack and it'll keep it cold until lunch time!
