I see all the time on here where people say it is cheaper to pack a kids lunch vs. buy at the school. This is my thought though... Maybe I am wrong...
School lunch here is $2.00 milk, entree two sides. There are several choices from sub sandwiches to hot roasted chicken or veggie burgers. We actually have a decent lunch program. It goes above and beyond the national requirements due to private funding. Anyway. For $2.00 a day I would have to send my kids PB&J an piece of fruit and carrot sticks every day... I feel like PB&J sandwiches have a ton of sugar in them compared to what they school offers. Like they can get a better variety and maybe even slightly healthier going that way. IS there something else I should be considering?

Sounds like your school has a good deal going. Where I live, the school lunches are gross. The food isn't that healthy,(hamburgers, pizza, grilled cheese, chicken fingers) and it tastes awful. I know I work there. If I forget my lunch, I have to buy it there. It's never very good.
