  • Our lunches suck. But the breakfast program is pretty good. We have a grant though for kinders & they get hot meals every morning. They get pancakes, eggs, sausage, toast, bisquits and gravy and things like that. I pack her lunch though. What I put in her lunch is better then anything theyd ever serve her. She only gets to eat at school when there is a favorite she might want, and thats maybe once a week? Otherwise its a sandwich (tuna, ham, pb&j), apple sauce or fruit slices, carrots, apples, banana, or crackers & usually a pudding snack for dessert.

  • My son hates his lunch at school, but he loves the breakfast! I am concerned because it is usually pancakes, sausage, and some kind of fruit in heavy syrup,,, at lunch I know he never eats his veggies,, I tried packing lunch for him, but most of it didn't get eaten, for some reason at his school the seperate the "hot lunch" and the ones who bring it from home,, IDK what to make of that, but anyhoo, he is growing, and I sneak in raw veggies and fruit when I can1 I feel your pain though!

  • My school district is crap crap crap.

    This week lunches worst things include Trix brand yogurt, marshmallow krispy treats, and plenty of nasty canned fruit swimming in heavy syrup.

    I send my sons lunch to school with the exception of 2 or 3 days a month. Always the breakfast day (french toast and sausage) because it's his absolute favorite thing on the planet and also there is 1 day a month w/ a NEW promotional item. This month the new promotional item is herbed pita chips w/ hummus dip. Kind of a bummer since he eats that weekly .... but it'll be nice for me to not have to pack a lunch that morning.

  • You mentioned where the main course was for mac and cheese? MAC and CHEESE would be the main course.

    My son is in high school and they have choices of things like grilled chicken sandwiches, burgers, wraps, hot wings, fruit and veggies. A pretty good variety of yogurt, and other things to go with it.

    BTW, your sons lunches sound good..a variety.
