Does he stick with the old sandwich standby, or do you send him off with something creative?
My son gets lunch in school. His favorite lunch is pizza. He also likes tuna salad and P B & J. As a side dish, he gets a tossed salad, a vegie or a fruit, as well as a carton of milk.
When I have the time I try to fill up a bento box with different yummy things. I try to make it fun and nutritious.
Ladies, you might want to try Deli Creations sandwich for them... It's easy to make. only takes less than a minute to heat up, pretty handy... I used to having it for my lunch.. :) and they're good. the packs come with a soft flatbread or soft sub roll, together with quality Oscar Mayer cuts of meat, premium cheeses and specialty sauces, all individually wrapped for freshness... and it's fun to make!
Our school cafeteria does not have microwaves for the children to use. My daughter (11) earns fifty cents a day for making and remembering her own lunch. PB & J, fruit, chips, and milk money.
I was glad I put in the remembering stipulation. It made it so there was a consequence the day she forgot her lunch, and I could still do the soft-hearted mom thing and take it to her at school!
That's lovely Acitez.. you are teaching her to be responsible since her younger age.. :) you go!
I also don't trust school cafeteria meals, most of them are high calories and sugar. That's why I made my own sandwich for me and the rest of the family.. :) and they're happy with those Deli Creations sandwiches.. :) they could choose turkey, ham or steakhouse sandwich.
