I am wondering whether a small, hand sized carton of fruit juice (frozen) would be allowed?

Only if they're 3.4 ounces or less. I don't buy those, so I don't know their capacity.

Millions of people for generations packed their lunch for school or work in a brown paper bag without a thought of keeping it cold. Why is it so important on an airplane?

That's what I did. However, the OP is talking about a much longer unrefrigerated period.

Lots of those people suffered from, let's say, gastrointestinal distress and didn't know the cause before germs were discovered in the 1800s. This is a wonderful book that includes that topic, among other interesting facts of life before 1900: The Good Old Days: They Were Terrible!

I think it's also that we're conditioned in the U.S. to think everything has to be refrigerated - food safety is emphasized a lot, not to mention extreme fear of microbes, which is why people use bacterial soap to the extent that we do. And many people don't actually know a lot about food. After a hurricane here 11 years ago, we were without power for 5 days. My neighbor cleaned out her fridge and threw out all the jams, jellies, pickles and other stuff that would have been just fine, because she knew nothing about preserving.

They keep until we eat lunch on the plane.
Don't they feed you on planes these days? Admittedly, I haven't flown for some years but they always fed us as part of the deal. Even on a very short flight such as Manchester - London (about 150 miles as the crow or BA flies) they offered free coffee and biscuits.

Sure. For about $8-$10 you can get a dried out sandwich with no flavor, and a small packet of nuts. Unless you're seated in first class, most airline food is nearly inedible, IMO. You can still get free (for now) coffee and soft drinks, and some offer pretzels, peanuts, or a cookie.

Lots of airlines have cut back on food service. You usually get a free beverage (soda, juice, coffee) and maybe some pretzels or a cracker mix, but not a full meal unless the flight is really long - not the whole trip, but the flight. So if I'm flying direct from Norfolk, VA, to California, there will be a meal, but if there's a layover in Charlotte, NC, or Dallas, no meal.

The last few times I traveled I brought frozen Ice pack with me. I had no trouble bringing it on the plain until on of the legs of traveling I forgot to freeze the bag and then TSA made me dump it. I was told I can bring it as long as it is frozen. It was a medical purpose ice pack.

Personally I have no problem bringing cold cut sandwiches even if it is the whole day travel. As long as they are airtight packed nothing happens to meat for one day for sure. Of course I have an iron stomach. But any restaurant inside the gate will give yo ice for free, so zip-lock bag might be your cheapest and easiest solution.

Depending on the airport, you can also get some pretty decent food to take on the plane after you pass thru security. Fort Lauderdale had some really nice selections the last time I flew and you could tell they were super fresh just by looking at them. It was definitely a bit pricey though and I'd hate to feed more than 1 or 2 at those prices.
