his lunch is "inadequate" for the field trip, I will go off...... just saying. 

Yup, Johnny has another theater trip with the High School, and because of lunches they want them to eat on teh buses... adn NO nuts, NO nut containing products yada yada...... 

I get why, I have food allergies also.

Did I mention that we are talking High School Seniors?

That is John's thought. That seeing how our district has several Suburban buses, why not put the 5 kids on a Suburban, and leave the other 500 to have their lunches. 

I mean it's not just Johnny's PB&J, but 90% of all granola bars, etc....

I agree, it is hard to find stuff that is nut free. It makes.me feel bad for the people with the allergies but at the same time it doesn't seem fair to inconvenience everyone else

last year he took: a zippy bag of baby carrots; a handful of saltines; and a bottle of water. 

I got a call letting me know that if lunch was an issue they could have brown bagged him one from the cafeteria (the kids get reduced lunches). 

What would you have packed him? He doesn't eat skin on fruit (apples have to be peeled, and he does this himself); doesn't eat lunch meat (slimey); doesn't eat mayo (or tuna or eggs) so there goes taht. 

If it was served hot, he needs to eat it hot, can't be lukewarm... and they don't have a microwave that he would have access to. 

I am sure he is planning on taking carrots, and a friut cup (provided I have the *right* flavor. 

Then he'll throw a PB&J in his locker to eat when he gets to school (his last period teacher will let him).

Ugh I've been looking into homeschooling and crape like this just makes it sound more and more appealing.
My daughter gets free.lunches too and only like twice a month will she buy cause they serve such crap and she is fussy too. And I've been spending a fortune on her packed.lunches cause she doesn't have a lot of time to eat and wont eat certain things like the basic.Lbj. . . Ahhhh if only I could homeschool

he will eat everything the school serves; and if it is something he jsut won't do (fish) he gets teh alternative. 

Which in elementary was sandwich; at the upper levels: Salad, leftover, sandwich, pizza...... he has not packed a lunch since 2nd grade.

ours is the district policy for High School field trips because they have the kids eat on the buses. complete PITA.

OMG this is like the 3rd post I've read on here in 5 minutes about a school not thinking a lunch is adequate.  When I was teaching, I paid no attention to what they were eating.  Who cares?  And teenagers can have weird eating habits.  Nutrition guidelines weren't in my teacher contract.  I mean, I get the food allergy thing, but saying a lunch is inadequate?  What the hell?  If the kid isn't starving, who cares?

My mom stopped packing my lunch when I started the sixth grade. That seems so strange.
