    Fruit

    Little tubs of tinned fruit

    Cheese and crackers

    Muesli bars

    I buy a big carton of fruit juice and then buy one small bottle of juice and once that's gone I pour from the big carton into the little bottle.

    Wraps,sw or rolls

    Dried fruit

    Cherry tomatoes

    Yoghurt

    For daycare lunch i usually pack.. 2 sandwhiches, 2 pieces of fruit, tub of yoghurt, cheese and crackers or popcorn, flavoured rice cakes, etc.
    And sometimes i will buy the v8 poppers when they are on special for ds to take.
    Ds's daycare has a no packaged/ processed food rule on top of the no nuts rule.

    I'm all for basic stuff like a sandwich, a piece of fruit & snack of some sort. The couple of times my daughter has been minded though I give her tuna, she loves it and its very healthy. Harvest Moon I love that your daycare has that rule, its fantastic, I seen some lunch's at the daycare centre my MIL works for and it was all packaged crap to say the least, I only saw a handful that had healthy food for lunch

    DS is only a toddler but I put these things in his lunchbox when he goes to his grandparents while I work:

    Puffed corn or rice or "o" cereal things made from quinoa and brown rice
    Little container of frozen corn, cubed cheese, carrot sticks and cucumber with yoghurt to dip (he never eats the carrot and cucumber but I keep giving it to him)
    Raisin toast
    Ryvitas or corn thins with peanut butter or cream cheese.
    A boiled egg, quartered
    Muesli bar
