Do your kids eat their lunch at school?

Posted by   + Show Post
I throw my sons lunch away every day. Idk what t do anymore. I ask him what he wants, I pack it, and then I throw it away when I get home. I want to just say that he can but lunch every day but I know he doesn't like what they have everyday and then I'm throwing away the money for I'm to buy. I do my best to feed him healthy so I won't pack any lunchables or anything like that. Any ideas on what to do, it's so frustrating!

That's a good idea. Ill probably feel bad, but I can try it.


Quoting Fields456:

Start packing him half of what u are packing ( or minus the amount he isn't eating) that way he still has a good lunch but it is only the amount he will actually eat and if he starts to finish it and complain he is hungry when u get him add A little more each time till u find the perfect amount that he eats and gets full on My dd is 6 1/2 and I had to do that with her and now when I pack her lunch she eats it all

I don't know. Dd doesn't usually eat much if any of her lunch. The less she eats for breakfast the better chance of her eating lunch. When she doesn't eat lunch she comes home starving so I let her eat the leftovers. I wish I had the magical answer. I'm sure dd has lost a few pounds since school started and now her skirts don't fit.
