School lunch Part II: What to pack



eggsaladlunch.jpgSome more advice from our favorite cooking expert, Janet Keeler, the Times food and travel editor. She answers that constant question, "Sandwich and ...?"

Do you always pack chips and a cookie with that PB&J sandwich? Consider these alternatives:
• Veggie sticks and hummus
• Edamame or pea pods
• Olives, green and black
• Cherries or grapes
• Snack mix (cereal, pretzels, nuts, dried fruit, small amount of chocolate)
• Greek yogurt mixed with fruit or honey
• Cherry tomatoes and ranch dressing
• Popcorn
• Soup or chili in an insulated container
• Deviled eggs
• Dried fruit
• Pasta or rice salad
