Because of the poor nutritional quality of the lunches in my childrens' schools (chicken nuggets, pizza, burgers, chicken patties, mostly fattening fast food choices) I make my children's lunches. I send yougurt, fruit, sandwiches, pretzels or baked chips, cheese sticks, granola bars, veggie strips w/dip etc. They end up eating it all and say their friends wish they had lunches like that. Even the teachers have commented on my children's good lunches (and I have children in middle school and high school) If your daughter is not happy with school lunches because of the choices offered, perhaps she could bring peanut butter crackers, yogurt, fruit, or something quick like that so she would at least have something good in her stomach. Lunch is so important. When kids get too hungry, their concentration goes down hill in school and they will often make bad food choices (junk food) later because it is the quick and easy choice and they are so hungry.
