What do you make in advance and freeze?

I'm really struggling with feeding DS in the day. We're BLW and he has porridge fingers in the morning, I'll flavour them differently so he gets different tastes every day. Then in the evening he has what we are, unless we're having something inappropriate in which case he has bits to pick at, so tomatoes, carrot and cheese for example.
I come unstuck at lunch. I just don't know what to give him. I struggle with me too, I don't tend to have anything so I can't share with him. So what can I do for his lunches? Eggs made him blotchy about 6 weeks ago so I'm still not sure about trying them again.

And yeah, because I totally missed the bit about freezing, what's best for making in a batch and then freezing? And what kind of quantities do you freeze?

Only really did the freezing thing with DS when he started on purees. If you do want to freeze things, how about soup or lasagne?

If you want some lunch suggestions, how about tinned sardines, beans or cheese on toast? Sandwiches or pasta and pesto?

How is he with egg in things like pancakes or cake?
