My children love those expensive cereal treats to go into there lunches. I have learned to make many different types. And the kids love them. Also they are cheaper and a little healthier with the less preservative in them.

My teen has decided to take her lunch to school this year but didn't want to carry a huge lunch box to hold a freezer block so we now freeze a yogurt (she likes the whips) and that keeps her lunch cold until lunchtime as well as gives her a healthy 'treat'.
when I buy fresh fruit, I always prepare it, (peel and dice) then put some in the fridge, some in serving size bags in the freezer. I use the frozen servings in lunch boxes, they keep the food cool and thaw by lunch time. For snacks, I only let them partially thaw, enough for comfortable eating. These are expecially good for hot weather snacks or refreshers at work like construction where you need extra liquid and cooling.491
Melons like watermelon or cantelope are great this way Use the more solid fruits as ones like oranges tend to get muchy. A great way to get vitamins, liguid, fiber, treats, healthy and cool off at the same time
I can't always control the cooking in my house. So when it's a one dish meal someone else made, I use a 1 cup measuring cup. I usually add a salad or vegetable for a side. For a to go option, use the snack size gladware (they hold about 9.5 oz) for a lunch portion. Easier to put in a lunch box too.
