What do they put in it? Are they healthy? Or is it all snacks? =)

DS is only in first grade so I still make his lunch. He gets a sandwich, capri sun, chips and a granola bar.

Nope, I make it. My daughter is 4 and in pre-k. She eats a lot of fruit and raw veggies

He helps. I make the sandwich and he picks the extras. He knows he can have a fruit( banana, apple, fruit cup, orange cup, grapes, strawberries, etc), a dairy (yogurt, cheese sticks), a "bag snack" (teddy grahams, cheez its, trail mix...anything in a bag, basically).

To drink he has a bottled water and a Capri Sun V. He likes to eat healthy so I don't have many problems. The problem will be with my daughter this year in Kindergarten. I know school lunch isn't the healthiest, but it's probably going to be better than what I can get her to pack in her lunchbox.

Yeah my step children make their own breakfast, lunch and dinner. At this point it's all snacks. Luckily they add vegetable snacks sometimes. Other than that. When we have them over. We feed them real meals and they eat like starved kids. Our kids that live with us. Make some meals sometimes, it's usually the easy stuff like sandwiches. That's only if they don't want to eat what everyone else is eating. That doesn't happen all the time.

DD usually eats at school but when she does make her own lunch she follows my guide which is to include a main dish, a veggie, a fruit, and then she can pick a fun thing : )

DS is only 3 1/2 so he doesn't make his own lunch yet.  I do let him pick what he wants out of 2 choices.

They usually do... sandwich of some sort, fruit, something crunchy (chips or baby carrots) or yogurt and a drink.
