Both of my boys are on a gluten free diet. To save money and to also ensure that I have a snack with me that they can eat (I was caught a few times) I purchased a small kid friendly lunch sack from the dollar section at Target. I keep it packed with snacks that the boys are able to eat. The sack is small enough to fit inside my purse. Sorry for the reflection on the picture, my kitchen is just way too bright in the morning!
