Do you pack your kids lunch or do they eat at school?

My oldest is still just in pre school, I let her eat lunch at school because i volunteer there and i know they feed them healthy, nutritous food but i think when she starts elementary school i will start packing her lunch. What do you do?

  • Packed lunch every day. Our school lunches are pretty awful & my son has no interest in them.

    laura970, I agree that you're very fortunate to have such a great school nutrition program. I wish we had that!

  • They eat hot lunch. I don't pack unless they have a field trip, or the cook falls ill/has an emergency and everyone needs to pack a lunch. She makes most everything from scratch, serves tons of fresh fruits & veggies, my kids LOVE her lunches. I only hope she stays at our school til my kids are all graduated!

  • We homeschool so all of our lunches are served right her at home. Knowing what goes into the public school lunches, we would pack if my kids attended school there.
