  • I'd rather save the time and have her buy lunch, as long as she's willing to eat it.

  • It depends on the day. If they are serving something she would prefer over a sandwich then Ill let her buy. I like to pack because I can see how much she eats. (the leftovers are in her lunch box every day) Some days Im busy and realize Im out of lunch meat or juice boxes. Once again..Ill let her buy.

  • I agree with you. I pack lunch so I know it is healthier. But I understand that not all moms are able to and that is okay too.

  • I can't afford the school lunches. I can pack a lunch for a lot less.

    I also agree. And Its actually cheaper to buy at my daughters school. Its $2.25 a day. When you factor in lunch meat, juice and snacks its actually cheaper to buy. But as I said....I do both and it depends

  • I pack her a lunch if not she buys a lunch. Depends on what's for lunch that day.

  • I make lunch for my son. And of course myself and fiance. School lunches aren't always healthy. I'd feel more confident sending him with something I made.

  • We don't have a cafeteria, so packing is pretty much the answer. I can order their lunches from a caterer at the beginning of the semester, but it's really expensive.
