Alisha does a lot and then she is starving when she gets home. I rather her eat something then nothing at school. What about your child or children?

I did when I was saving money to go see Duran Duran. I had $100 in singles to take with me to the concert!

Great work Jennifer but did your body pay for it? Alisha must be feeling better about things becasue she has eaten lunch twice this week, I am so happy. I told her I do not care what she eats, just a little something.

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.

Sammi great idea, been so busy lately packing and moving. I have time for that now. You are so right the lunches at school are bad. I like your ideas of what you pack them. Thanks.

Yes I would pack her something that she would love too. If she doesn't want hot lunch.

I loved hot lunch in school because I was sick of sandwiches for the last 9 years that when I got to HS I was every too happy for it.

My doctor said hot lunch is not healthy either.

Jannie I did not realize the doctors agree with that too. Thanks for pointing that out.
