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?
