Have your kids ever swapped lunches at school?

I found out after the fact that my kids had swapped some oftheir lunches for other kids lunches. For example if the school had pizza on the menu that day some kids would rather have a homemade sandwich than to eat the school lunches. My kids were really big on eating pizza, so they swapped. I got some interesting feedback on some of the sandwiches I packed. Like they were really delicious and how could my kids give away such good food. lol

  • NICE!

    My son's school doesn't have a hot lunch program, so all the kids bring their own lunch. My son just told me this morning that he traded his homegrown peppers for a fruit by the foot. ugh! Poor kid never gets that stuff in his lunch.

  • Yep, just yesterday my son traded his PB&J for chicken nuggets, lol. Last week it was pretzels for french fries!

  • Yep! They usually eat cafeteria food, and they trade the parts they don't like with other kids.

  • It's not allowed in my DD's school to swap. They're pretty anal about that.

  • yup ,though they like their sandwiches and homemade treat so they are shrewd and will only trade half of their item for a full item.It is funny to hear the wheeling and dealing over a brownie or half a sandwich lol

  • I had to buy my daughter a second thermos, because her friends like her lunches better than their own.
