Do you ever eat Lunchables for lunch?

This week at our local grocery store Lunchables are $1 a piece. These are the ones with a drink and a treat like a pudding or candy piece. I bought them for my son's school lunch, but we ate them today for lunch instead.
Do you ever eat them?I know they are a "kid" food, but do you ever?

    Worst lunches for kids
    Lunchables take the cake

    Oscar Mayer's Lunchable "food" combination products are among the worst packaged kids meals, according to an analysis of 60 products by dietitians with the Cancer Project.

    This isn’t a surprising discovery by the group, which advocates a plant-based diet. But it’s a good reminder to read labels (which is all the dietitians did in the study) if you’re trying to avoid heavily processed and artificially flavored foods with unpronounceable ingredients.

    Lunchables Maxed Out Cracker Combo Ham and Cheddar, a meal of processed meat, cheese, a candy bar and sugary drink, topped the list since it contains 22 grams of fat, 50 milligrams of cholesterol, and an outrageous sodium level of 1,600 mgs. of sodium--more salt than younger children should have in a day.

  • Normally, they are pretty expensive for what you get. I think the last one I looked at was like $3-$4.

    I can buy a whole box of crackers and a whole pound of cheese for that. :)
