Lunch ideas for 4 year old??

My 4 year old daughter is starting school next week, and they are very strict on what you can give them. She is a picky eater, loves ham and cheese sandwhiches and pasta, but i can't give her that all the time. Are there any suggestions?? No wraps, doesn't like them, and it's hard to give fruit that won't go bad after unpeeling (except oranges). Only likes oranges and bananas and sometimes strawberries. Any ideas would be appreciated!!! LOL !!!

My son ate ham sandwiches for snack AND lunch every single day until January and then he mixed in buttered bagels! LOL, he is EXTREMELY picky. My daughter is a better eater. Here are a few things that are popular in our house: Buttered/cream cheese bagels or a roll, ham sandwiches, cereal, french toast sticks, mini waffles, yogurt and cheese sticks, PB&J, chicken nuggets, cream cheese and crackers with mini carrots. Gogurts when frozen overnight thaw just in time for lunch. We bought a short thermos from Target that is perfect for all the hot foods. They also sell very small containers that you can freeze the top so it keeps the food cold. Although it is a little more expensive, they sell little fresh fruit packages with grapes or apples. Good luck!
