My daughter recently got accepted to a full-day kindergarten school.
My daughter doesn't eat much to begin with, but I do make sure she has a big breakfast before school.
Yesterday was her first day, I packed her mac n' cheese, as well as cheese and crackers with a bottle of water.
When I came to pick her up, the teacher was very displeased with me and said Lauren needed more food as she is there the whole day. ( She didn't even finish the lunch I packed for her)
I of course apologized, since this is my first child in a full-day kinder program.( My son who is in grade 3 seems fine with his lunch )
Today I packed her two separate containers of grapes and carrots, as well as her fave mac n' cheese, and a bottle of water.
She again was displeased with me as she went through Lauren's bag to ensure she had adequate lunch.
I'm at a loss what to pack her, I've seen what other mothers have packed their children, and it just seems excessive, again, my daughter doesn't eat much.
Thoughts? Without breaking the bank? And am I packing too little?
I'm so limited on what to pack her, since those lunchable snack boxes are not allowed in her school, as well as cakes,cookies, anything with chocolate, and most granolas. Everything packed must be "litterless" as well. No food in wrappers.
** and of course the classic PB&J and anything nut related are not allowed.
She came home, and half of her mac n cheese was left, as well as her grapes.
