My 5 year old, kindergartener has been refusing to eat his lunch. Whether I pack or he buy school lunch, he does not eat much. The other day he had an apple out of everything I packed. Yesterday, he ate his pudding, that's it! I try to pack what he would normally eat at home, such as a PB sandwich, pudding or Jello, a cut up apple with PB or some kind of fruit, fruit roll up and juice box. He says the kids in lunch "gross him out" with what they are eating. I try to tell him, don't worry about anyone else, just eat your lunch! I worry about him! Anyone else having this problem?

Hehe, my son does the same thing. Not that his lunch grosses him out, but he is just to busy talking and playing during lunch instead of eating. When he comes home he tells me he is hungry and I tell him to finish his lunch. Very rare that he will at school. They will grow out of this phase I'm sure.
