I was just thinkin about this this morning while making DH's lunch. For him and DS I normally make similar things.
Tuna mayo cucumber and tomato sandwiches
Cut up fruit (melon, grapes, pears, bananas, apples, etc) with yoghurt
Crackers with Vegemite and butter
Ham and salad wraps with mayo
Avocado on crackers
Or a guacamole with crackers
A small bag of mixed nuts
For DS is not a fan of wraps or bread sometimes so I cut up some cucumber tomato ham and cheese and he eats the pieces
Other ideas could be quiche and salad
Zucchini and cheese muffins
Tuna salad with dressing or mayo
Salami and salad sandwiches with chutney
Leftovers (eg spag Bol, curries, lasagne, beef stroganoff, apricot chicken etc)
Baked potato with tuna and salad
Baked potato with cheese, salad and sour cream
Rissoles on a sandwich or wrap
Ham Cheese and tomato toasted sandwiches
Can't think of anything else right now

If you have access to a microwave and fridge then leftovers? Or if you have a toasted sandwich maker there are thousands of ideas!
I used to take turkish breads and make a sandwich of ham, grilled eggplant, grilled capsicum, sun dried tomato, grilled asparagus, olives, aoili and sometimes those marinated artichokes. Was so yum and I just chucked it in the sandwich press at work and in 5 mins I had a delish toasted sandwich. Only took 10 or so minutes the night before and I would make enough for 2 days worth.
If it's the weekend and were being lazy for lunch I'll often make DH tuna toasted sandwiches (I HATE tuna!) with sliced cheese, a tin of tuna mixed with some mayo (probably could buy the one's pre done but we never have those) and salt and pepper. Toast and voila, yucky tuna sandwich Apparently it's actually very nice!!

I just had a "tiger tummy" bread roll with ham, avocado, mayo, cheese, lettuce and cucumber and it was amazing.
Frittatas are great cold or warm, I make them with leftover roasted veg, garlic onion, anything really, I'm yet to make one that wasn't delicious.

Im working on freezer food for baby arriving and made 24 zachinni muffins for the freezer , they might make fantastic lunch idea. I did them in cupcake tins.
1 cup s/r flour
1/4 cup olive oil
1 zachinni grated
1 onion finely chopped
2 or 3 rashes bacon finely chopped
1 cup grated cheese.
preheat oven 180c , prepare muffin/ cupcake tin i use cooking spray
wisk eggs , oil , salt/pepper , add flour mix through then add the zachinni , onion and bacon and cheese mix through.
Instead of zachinni you could add a tin of cream corn or even some tinned tuna for somthing different.
If i have bananas left i make huge pile of banana and choc chip muffins for the freezer again easy to do not much dishes ect.
2 cups s/r flour
1 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 banana mashed
preheat oven 180c , line cupcake tray with cupcake bases
Whisk , egg , milk , oil and sugar then add flour , chop banana add to mix and choc bits.
