I find a lot of the keys to a lunch box success is the prep and equipment.
I got ds a freezable reusable container for his yoghurt (it's still cold at 3pm) instead of using expensive pouches we buy a big tub for the whole family.
We also have a few smaller ice bricks to really surround all his containers and keep them chilled all round and a compartmentalised lunch box so things don't get smushed, bruised or soggy.
Some recipes that make things easy..
We freeze small meatballs, ATM they are chicken, bacon & zucchini
Frozen slices of frittata
Frozen vegemite scrolls
Frozen scones or rock cakes
I bake in bulk and freeze after cutting. So we just grab a portion each morning from the freezer, by the time he has lunch they are still cold and ready to eat.
Most days he also has some cheese, tin of tuna and crackers with a disposable fork so it doesn't matter if it gets lost.
Fruit - grapes, banana or cut up apple
And today he has left over homemade crumbed chicken tenders and some cherry tomatoes plus carrot sticks and a small container of hommus.
Ds for some reason doesn't like sandwiches. He always wants lots of little things and his lunch ends up looking like an antipasto platter.

I haven't read all the posts, so sorry if repeating anyone.
It may sound ridiculous, but sometimes, when I changed the look of something/ or the way I described it my DS ate it. i.e. Soft boiled eggs became "dippy eggs with soldiers (toast fingers), or a salad sandwich became a salad face on a plate.
Or I grated carrot and lightly fried (with spray oil) and called in Orange pasta Etc
Of course not everything works and it might work one day but not the next.
just some ideas
