Olives are always good....and even though she's low-carbing it, it doesn't hurt to have her pair cheese with slices of apple. Also, you can use deli slices of turkey or ham to roll around pieces of cheese.

You will probably get lots of good ideas by reading about the paleo diet. It is grain free (so naturally low in carbs), AND peanut free. Just google something vague like, "Paleo Lunchbox" and you'll find all kinds of information.

If you use a container with sections, you can send a variety of small food (cubed meat and cheese, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, etc.) My son loves this type of "snacky" lunch - especially if I send chopsticks or put the food on skewers.

I also make and freeze things like gluten-free meatballs and chicken nuggets so I can send those too.

He loves chicken salad on cucumber rounds.

Will she eat hard boiled eggs? Those are perfect for a lunch box.

Muffins made with coconut flour? You could do pumpkin or squash muffins to sneak in some veggies.

Thought of something else ... if you have a dehydrator, you can do a lot of snacks that way. We've been getting a basket of apples at the farmer's market and making dried apples with them (we add some cinnamon) and we LOVE them! We have also done dried strawberries. I haven't tried it this way but I think you could also do this in the oven over very low heat.
