QOTW: School Lunches

Image Credit: Kids Health by Nemours

It’s back to school month and with that comes school lunches. When I was in school my Mom packed me a lunch almost every day. Now, I love my Mom, but let’s face it, sandwiches get old after a while. She did spice it up though by cutting my sandwiches into different shapes, which is always a fun surprise.

Nowadays some schools are pretty strict on what your kids bring for lunch. Remember that story about the girl that brought a sandwich and they made her by chicken nuggets because they didn’t think her lunch was healthy enough? (You can read the story here) As if packing for a picky eater wasn’t already a challenge, now there is the extra pressure of making sure it’s deemed acceptable by the school. Ah! So here’s my question for all of you:

What do you pack for your kids lunches during the school year? Is your school strict about what they bring for lunch?

  1. My kids start kindy in 2 weeks. I just paid for a month’s worth of hot lunches for each–$82! Yikes. I’m thinking my daughter will stick with staples like PBJ and fruit. She is my super picky eater. I bet my son will want to eat hot lunch most days.
