  • Pitta bread and wraps (check dates)
  • Sliced continental hard cheese (Emmenthal, Edam, Gouda etc)
  • Salami, dry-cured or smoked meat
  • Apples
  • Dried fruit

What does not work?

  • Bananas (they bruise too easily)

  • Ready-made rolls, wraps or sandwiches (goes off or soggy)
  • Yoghurts
  • Cheese blocks
  • Sliced cheddar (they stick together when warm and crumble)
