DS is 2.5 years old. I pack him a lunch every day for school. Sometimes I do hummus rounds - put hummus in a sandwich and punch out rounds with a biscuit cutter. Other days I boil ravioli and pack it for him - he can eat it cold with his fingers. Spinach and cheese, butternut squash, harvest vegetable ravioli. He's also a fan of Trader Joe's vegetable fried rice. I just throw it in a container frozen and it's heated if he wants it, or room temp by lunch.
Cheese and bean quesadilla, sliced and cold. Sometimes I roll cheese and meat in bread and slice it so it looks kind of like a cinnamon roll.

Honestly, I don't understand all this angst. You're mothers, not short order cooks. When I was growing up, I ate whatever my mother packed or went hungry. I don't plan on doing any different when my kids are school aged. And since lunch meat was invented as a way of preserving meat, it wouldn't occur to me to bother with freezer packs, since I buy quality meat.
