  • mostly cause its healthier and they pretty much eat the entire thing and at school they tend to just eat the main thing like pizza or hamburger. Right now we qualify for free luch but mostly they just eat one day a week and I pack lunches the rest. It would be cheaper if I had to pay reg price tho. Their school lunches are ok

  • I pack lunches and I got one of those Pack Its so it really does stay nice a cool. I pack because, for lunch one day last year they had funnel cakes and canned peaches. I just can't abide it. It's a personal choice for everyone I think.

  • Usually pack because it is cheaper, but DS gets hot lunch when it is something he really wants. Hot lunch is $2.50 a day, so he gets it once a week if even.

  • Nope, for the same reason Rosehawk said. I always worried about it, and now it just confirms why I won't pack lunches for them.
