  • Packed Lunch - it offers the best way to manage concern of whether or not the kids are getting what they need in a healthy lunch.

  • I pack their lunches but I also keep their lunch accounts full in case they decide they want the school lunch--or if they want to buy milk, pizza (or some other hot meal) or a dessert.

  • Both with me working for the cafeteria I have money in the account and if she doesn't like something then we send her a packed lunch our lunches are good. We serve lots of fruits and veggies everyday

  • I pack her lunch, UNLESS, they are having pasta, pizza or taco's. For some reason DD loves those at her school, but they only serve each once a month. So, three days a month, i don't pack her lunch.

  • I always have them eat school lunch. It is way to much for me to pack them. I work full time, go to school full time, and keep the house clean. Everybody buys lunch out. Plus...my girls hate sandwhiches.

  • 90% of the time my daughter had school lunch. Sometimes she'd ask me to make her lunch though.

  • I send. Whatever I pack is cheaper and healthier than what they have there. I do let him get it once in a while if he asks (he has a thing for ravioli day), but it's a treat, like any other junk food.

  • Our school lunches are pretty healthy so my kids pack one time a week. or when they are serving their favorite food.

  • I pack my sons lunch. He is a picky eater in a GREAT way! He likes raw cucumbers, raw carrots...grapes...bananas. And those things are offered sometimes. But if I paid for him to get a hamburger or pizza it would be a waste...he would rather have veggies....I KNOW strange kid. Definitely did not take after me! LOL
