my ds is starting "all day" school next week and is going to be taking his lunch. Any experienced "packers" with any exciting ideas of what to pack? i don't want to end up in a ham sandwich/yogurt/apple trap every day. Any ideas?

You may be surprised at home much they like the ham sandwich/yogurt/apple thing and dislike it when you try to be different smile. However, that said, I do try to ring the changes - cereal bars, little tubs of different fruit - cherry tomatoes, strawberries, grapes etc, packets of dried fruit.

Try different breads eg. pitta bread, crackers.
Pieces of cheese/Babybel cheeses etc
Homemade mini-muffins -they freeze well so can be taken out individually on the day they're needed

DD often takes "leftovers" eg. pasta from dinner the night before, rice made into a rice salad

eggy bread
chunks of frittata
mini homemade jelly with fruit in it
