I get my kids the Gogerts and freeze them the night before. Usually by lunch they are not fozen anymore. Also try peanut butter and marshmellow cream sandwich. Sometimes I put a sliced bannana on it also.

My kids love to eat hummus with pita bread :) I put some hummus in a little container and some pita bread in a baggie. Or I will put pita chips with it. Big hit~!

Try roll ups. Ham and cheese rolled up in a flour tortilla. Or make a sandwich and use a cookie cutter to cut a neat shape out of it. Celery and peanut butter. You can buy the individual little bags at the store of veges and dip or apples and dip or apple slices and grapes. Make your own with snack bags!! String cheese is always good too.

I'm not sure what your son likes... But my daughter loves raw veggie sticks - Carrots, Celery, Green Peppers. She also is a fan of yogurt, which is easy to pack. Cheese and crackers is simple and easy - kids love that! I'd put a half a sandwich in there with some veggie sticks and fruit. I'd switch it up once in a while, and change out the sandwich with cheese/meat and crackers, or maybe some leftovers that can be served cold, or kept in a thermos to stay warm. Some cooked veggies are good cold, too, like broccoli cooked in some garlic and onion.
