Pack or Buy?

Does your tween pack or buy their school lunch?

If they pack it, do you have them make their own lunch?

We pack. Before the twins stared, we had DD1 buy. Last year we found that it was cheaper for all 3 to pack but give them an option to buy once a week. my husband makes their lunches while I get them up and going in the morning. It's just easier for us to do it because we don't want to hear the whining. Haha

My son buys his lunch, but if he wants to bring it (usually only does for field trip days), he has to pack it himself.

We pack. Our schools food is atrocious and my dd doesn't eat meat so she would starve if she didn't pack. I usually do it but sometimes she will pack her own (though I have to check it and make sure she didn't grab all snack foods)

Depends most of the time she packs, however on a few days like Pizza day she buys. I pack my kids lunch for them.

Both. If he wants what's on the menu he eats that. If not, he packs his own lunch, some type of sandwich or beef jerky with cheese and crackers, pasta salad, broccoli or bean salad, etc and maybe some fruit or a few cookies etc.

I do monitor what he packs though.

Both my kids hate the cafeteria food so I ALWAYS pack, and I sort of hate it.

My kids buy, but can pack if they don't like what the school is offering that day.

Middle school this year so we haven't decided yet, but it probably will be both since he gets reduced lunch and doesn't allways like what they serve.
