Grape Jelly on grilled cheese

that reminds of a monte cristo sandwich.They wouldnt be the same without a smear of strawberry jam;-) i think it gets down to that salt and sweet going together(complementing each other) Ever had choclate and potatoe chips in the same sitting?

Thank you all for all the great ideas!!! Happy summer!!!

Hi, I thought I would see if any of you have any great ideas for packing interesting and nutricious lunches. (excuse the spelling my brain isn't working right now! lol) My girls refuse to eat school lunches and after seeing what they serve I don't blame them. Yuck! Lots of stuff that looks like frozen processed cardboard with little taste or nutrients. So like the wonderful mom that I am I pack lunch every day. My problem is that it is only Oct and I am sick of packing pretty much the same thing every day. Now I do have to watch the budget really close and prefer realitively simple things but I do have the blessing of non picky kids!! Our usual lunch is a ham and cheese sandwich, string cheese, apple sauce or some other form of fruit, chips and maybe some cookies or snack cake if I have them and a low sugar or diet drink. I do sometimes make Jello and put them in the little cups, we have tried pudding but it turns nasty and runny by lunchtime. Anyway any ideas would be appreciated.

Mary, those forums Abear pointed out have lots of great ideas.
One of my kids' favorite things to bring for lunch is bagel and cream cheese. I slice the bagels, bag and freeze. The night before, I open up the bagels, spread the cream cheese, then put in the sandwich bag in the fridge. It's completely defrosted by lunch & stays cool with one of those little icy packs.
They also like tuna on burger rolls (especially potato rolls!) That's what they're taking today. My 2 year old had it for breakfast, since he wanted what they were having and still has no concept of "wait until lunchtime." I can't handle tuna at 6:30 AM but he ate it. At least it was a nutritious, if strange, meal!

How about these:

Salami & Cream Cheese Rollups
Carrot Sticks in a bag
Juice Box

Cream Cheese Nut Sandwich on Brown Bread
Juice Box

Hot Soup in a thermos
Hot Dog (tie kitchen string through hot dog and drop it in the thermos with the string hanging out before you pour in the soup)
Bun (wrapped separately)
ketchup or mustard packets
