Brown Bag Meals: Best (Quiet) Snacks for Eating In Class?

Fall is a really busy time for those of us in school. We happen to know several people who have nearly full-time jobs, and a full course load too. At least one of these people almost never has time to eat. She has a job that keeps her on her feet most of the day, and the only time to grab a bit of lunch is during class. But it's hard to eat in class; it feels terribly conspicuous and noisy. Any good tips for lunches to pack for classtime?

We think that eating during a class, especially small classes, is only something to be done under duress, if it's necessity. Otherwise it's bordering on rude. But if you just don't have any other time to eat during the day, is there something good (and quiet!) to eat in the back of the lecture hall?

What are some home-packed snacks that keep you going during the day and, perhaps, in class too?
