Lunch Box Foods that Need No Refrigeration

[ Here are ] a few foods which are healthy, don't need to be kept chilled
Whole Brain Breads

Whole grain breads retain texture and are safe to eat from morning until noon. Read the product label to ensure that the word 'whole' comes before wheat or oats and make sure that whole grains are listed first. This bread category also includes rolls, muffins, crackers and chips.

Pasteurized Cheese

Not all cheese requires refrigeration. Snack sized wedges that are individually wrapped make a perfect healthy food to tuck inside a school lunch box. Laughing Cow is one company that makes spread able cheese wedge that are shelf and lunch box stable. The cheese is a god source of calcium and can be spread of whole wheat bread, crackers or fruit during school lunch period.

Nut Butters

Peanut butter is not the only nut butter in town - nut butters are also made from cashews and almonds and they are all shelf stable. Nut butters of all flavors are a good source of protein, fiber, minerals and they all contain the 'good' fat. Some brands of nut butter are packaged in individual serving sizes for quick and easy lunch box packing. Nut butters are great for dipping fresh fruit or vegetable slices or for spreading on whole grain bread or crackers.

Fruit Cups

Sliced, diced and packaged fruit cups provide the same nutrients as their whole, fresh counterparts. Select a fruit cup which packs the fruit in its own juice for a low sugar, healthy lunch box treat that needs no refrigeration.

Fruit or Vegetable Juice

Fruit and vegetable juices are packaged in individual serving size packages and come in a wide variety of flavors, none of which requires refrigeration. One juice box or can provides one serving of fruit or vegetables, but the juice has less fiber than it's raw counterpart and will contain more calories.

I forgot to add, small sized water bottles for kids. Of course it would be better to not give kids water in the clear plastic but you do what you can. small size and portability is important in an emergency.
The metal (stainless steel, not aluminum) bottles are probably pretty good...
