Usually a carb type, sandwich or pizza scrolls or picklets, two types of fruit usually berries apples or mandarins (seasonal), cherry tomatoes and melon are also a regular feature. I try to bake snacks so home made cookies or muffins otherwise a fruit bar or shapes.
In winter I'll put yogurt in there too but not in qld's summer.

DP does the school lunches most of the time, but when I do my DS's this is what I put:
-Sandwich x 1
-Fresh fruit x 1
-Yoghurt x 1 (generally the squeezy pouch type, but I also make Easiyo yoghurt)
-Vegetable (cherry tomatoes, cucumber, carrot for example)
-Snack (either sweet or savoury), could be a baked item like a muffin/cake/slice or a small packet of chips or crackers.

My 6yo dd is very fussy with her lunch and what I pack only tends to get half eaten.
She usually has:
1 vegemite and butter sandwich
1 serving of fruit eg nectarine, plum, banana, grape
1 snack sometimes eg shapes, le snak, pancake
Ds is much less fussy and for him it's usually:
1 sandwhich with ham, salami and cheese
1 serving of fruit
1 snack eg shapes, yogurt, le snak, pancake
If I run out of bread I will substitute with saos, rice cakes, crackers.
I also sometimes pack tuna or scrambled egg as the protein substitute in place of ham/salami
