  • I always pack their lunches, but I also make sure they have money in their lunch accounts in case they want to buy something.

  • We pack our lunches. The school lunches are not so hot in the sodium processed food department. We will use last year's lunch box as it is still in good shape.

  • He takes cold most of the time. He likes chicken and rice most days.

  • They get free lunches. My high schoolers never pack because there is more varity there but my elementary kid buys about 40% of the time. He's more picky and the elementary only gives one lunch.

  • We are getting a Goobyn and I will be packing his lunch.  He is a nibbler so all sorts of things can go - nuts, fruits, veggies, chips, cookies, a sandwich, juice, hummus, cheese...the possibilities are endless.  I just have to see what are hits and what are misses and go from there.

  • Hit answer question too soon! They have insulated lunchboxes from LL Bean, and I send sandwiches, fruit, crackers/pretzels, and juice boxes or small bottle water, and sometimes a surprise special treat! :o)

  • He brings - it's healthier and cheaper. We tried letting him do their food once in a while last year just to save time in the morning, but it wasn't worth it.

  • I always pack my son's lunch. He doesn't like much they serve at school. I do leave money in his account tho, just in case he wants and extra. He kinda rotates between roast beef and cheddar sandwiches, PB & J's, wraps with various lunch meats and cheeses...and peanut butter and honey wraps, baked chips, and applesauce or something like that and if he wants something more, he'll ask before we leave for school.
