For those who can't use peanut butter, cashew butter isn't that expensive and it's really tasty.
Also, you can mix it up a bit: take a flour torilla, spread with nut butter and honey, roll up. For a younger kid, cut into slices to make cute little swirls.
As a snack: baby carrots with hummus or celery with nut butter and raisins.
My favorite: pasta or rice salad. Take leftover pasta or rice, toss with a little oil and vinegar, some oregano, salt, and pepper, and any leftover veggies (diced), beans, or shredded cheese. Add in a couple of olives. Yum! It's really satifying, inexpensive, and can be pretty healthy depending on what you put in it.
