I wanted to post an example of my kid's school lunch menu - here is what they get to choose from on Mondays
B Macaroni and Cheese / Warm Roll
C Smiley Face Sandwich (Bagel / Cream Cheese / Ham)
D Garden Salad / Cheese / Breadstick
E Critter Bag (this is a paperbag with a Crustable PBJ" sandwhich, chips, and a cookie)
* they get a drink with lunch - choice of LF milk, choc milk, water, or lemonade ...
* they can also get a "SNACK" .. this could be a piece of fruit, a cookie, or ICE CREAM !!! .....
OMG ... and there is no "input" from the school on choices - my son is going into 4th grade ... HOLY CRAP !!!!
Soo ... my kid will be taking his lunch every day - he took most of the time last year and before but now it's gonna be all the time - so uncool !
Any ideas for good stuff to pack ?? He is very flexible about food and likes most stuff and is not wedded to the sandwich idea !
