My DDÂ takes her lunch everyday.Â On Sunday afternoons, we go to the store so that she can pick what she wants to eat. I allow her to pick one box of snack cakes as a treat andÂ other items as long as they are good for her. She usually picks fruit (loves strawberries and apples), soup, sandwich meats, etc. Then we pack her lunch together every morning. I always put baby carrots in instead of chips. We tried all different types of drinks, but she prefers water. To make sure she is eating, I requested that the teacher NOT have her trow away her bags and stuff from in the lunch. Then if she doesn't eat an item I know. If she doesn't eat it several times in a row, then we have a talk. The best part is that she eats good food, yet still has choices.
