Those ideas can act as the "sandwich" for a school lunch. Maybe add some cut up veggies, cherry tomatoes or pieces of fruit. A larabar can also be a fun addition to a kid's lunch bag. If your kids like pickles, real fermented varieties can be a fun snacky side item.
Get a lunchbag that allows you to add an ice pack. Are there any meats he likes cold?
Primal lunches I used to make for work:
slices of cold chicken breast and cheese, cherry tomato, a leaf or two of romaine and a piece of fruit (usually an apple). Use the lettuce leaves as sandwich 'bread'/wrap for the chicken and cheese. Sometimes I wouldn't have lettuce so I'd pack toothpicks and spear the chicken, cheese, and a tomato together. I would do the same for steak as well.
Chicken or tuna salad made with primal mayo and red grapes, using a piece of celery as a spoon.
Low carb wraps like what Iltruss suggested
Cold primal-ized pizza
Cold shirataki noodles mixed with cooked chicken. green onions, and a peanut sauce (I haven't made this in a while, I remember it was a primal peanut sauce/peanut curry sauce but I can't find the recipe)
Will keep thinking, I basically took dinner leftovers and made a cold meal from them for lunches. Of course, I like cold chicken and cold, thinly sliced beef. If your kiddo doesn't then it might be harder.
I almost always send my son (3) to mother's day out with deli meat, some cut veggies & fruit and some avocado. Sometimes I'll send him with tuna salad. I try not to make it too complicated. I put some ice packs in his box to keep it cool until lunch. His teachers probably think I'm so weird because I don't send a sandwich and chips. And I don't let him have the candy they pass out, he gets a sticker instead. My poor kid, lol.
