Good preschool lunch?

This is just bugging me. My 3 year old goes to prepper-preschool monday, wednesday, friday. I pay 150$ a week so 50$ a day. On his sheet they sent home yesterday it says lunch was a hard boiled egg, peas, broccolli and milk. I feel like thats a really measly, cheap a** lunch when i paid 50$ for the day. Not even a serving of fruit? Or bread? I keep seeing it on my fridge and being annoyed. Would you be? Do you think thats a good lunch? Would you say something?

Where do you live that preschool is $50 a day? is it full day?

Why did you not ask to see their menu or nutritional plan before enrollment?

Kids don't have to have bread or fruit every meal. The peas are a starch like bread. Eggs are great protein and broccoli is a great veg.

That's fine for a preschooler for one day, protein, vegetables, and dairy. What are the other days like. Not every meal needs carbs and fructose.

What's wrong with that lunch? Sounds like something my 2.5 year old would eat.

The lunch at my daughters daycare preschool isn't that good. And we pay more than $50 a day.

Mine wouldn't eat that lunch.

50 a day sounds a little expensive.

Sounds like a pretty good lunch to me.

Minnesota, is that expensive? I looked at 3 other schools that cost much more. He goes from about 10am to 4pm. Ive never had an issue with the lunches before, they send home a sheet of what they did that day and had for lunch every day. They dont have a pre planned sheet like some schools. Ive never thought about it or had issue. This just seems like a cheap lunch to me.
