Nice ideas! When I was a kid, I never liked sandwiches (even before I got celiac), so my mom would always pack me "weird" lunches of crackers and cheese, veggies and fruit, leftovers, etc. But I loved 'em. Your lunch ideas would've been right up my elementary school/middle school alley. (By high school I'd graduated to eating ice cream for lunch...don't do that.)
