|This is a lunch featured in a earlier post.|
His school has a cafeteria that serves a variety of healthy lunch options. Super healthy main dishes like black bean burgers and vegetables with hummus. They sound great to me, but I don’t know if you would like them. My plan was just to keeping making him lunch all year rather than having him buy lunch.
We were going to try out different breads, vegetables, and fruits. I have plans for sandwiches cutout with cookie cutters and pinwheel sandwiches filled with homemade cream cheese spreads.
That is still going to happen, but recently JDaniel announced that he would like to try to buy lunch.at school. I am not sure if it is the allure of getting in line and selecting your meal or as he says buying lunch means you don’t have to carry a heavy lunch box.
As I mentioned the lunches are all healthy. The days of tacos with sides of fruit cocktail, tater tots and a cinnamon roll are over. (I loved taco days at school when I was little.) We sat down and looked at the school lunch calendar to select a good day to try to buy lunch. There was a little debate over whether or not certain food selections would actually be eaten or would be thrown away. ( I hated to watch student throw away 50% or more of their lunches when I was a teacher.)
Finally we decide on pizza. JDaniel told me that it looked good on other students lunch trays. I asked if they liked it and he didn’t know. I am crossing my fingers that he likes it. He will be having it for lunch this Friday.
If he likes it, we will trying buying lunch on pizza days. They only happen three times a month at his school. We may even try a few of the other lunch options. I will continue to create lunches on the non-pizza days. That should make us both happy.
What do your children like to have for lunch at school?
