  • I have middle schoolers that I pack for starting this school year.
    We used to qualify for free lunch but this year we didn't so we're trying to figure it out as we go along. And truthfully we do pay for a few lunches per week because it is easier. However, I am making them start to plan what meals they want to eat at school and giving them a budget for the month starting in November.
    Also, I do give them money for breakfast on Monday because it has so much food I can't beat the price.

  • Yep, every day. My granddaughter can't eat school lunch. She has to many allergies and it is too hard to monitor. My grandson WON"T eat school lunch.

  • My 2 oldest children like the hot lunches offered at school, so they eat hot lunch. The only time I pack a lunch for them is if they have a field trip and need a sack lunch. My youngest is in 4K am-- so he does not have lunch at school, he eats lunch when he gets home.

  • No - if my kids want a packed lunch, they started packing their own in 3rd grade. I will occasionally help, but they are perfectly capable of doing it, and that way they get exactly what they want.
