Help me pack a lunch for my 4.5 year-old daughter.

My daughter is an adventurous eater for her age... Heck, for any age. When we go out to eat, she tends to desire whole grilled fish and is dismayed if it is served without the head and tail. She believes the best part is the fish's face, and has been known to eat the eyeballs. At home, she prefers duck, crab, olives, and broccoli to chicken fingers.
Don't get me wrong -- she loves a grilled cheese sandwich and a chocolate chip cookie. She likes PB&J, too.
What can I pack her that doesn't need to be refrigerated? Another way to ask is this: can a sandwich with a protein on it taste good and not hurt her if it is unrefrigerated for four hours?
