Some schools try to control what the kids bring from home.  **nononono*

A few years ago, I packed lunches for my granddaughter and myself for a program at her school. It was Grandparents Day, and the activities were outside. I fixed turkey sandwiches, a salad, and some fruit, along with bottled water at the request of Kenna. It wasn't so much nutrition, but what she liked to eat. One of the teachers commented on her healthy lunch, and then came back later, to comment again. Even then, I thought, what the heck, are they checking all the lunches to use against parents later on?

I got tired of hearing my grandsons complain and coming home so hungry, some days the 8yo only ate a bun from some mystery meat sandwich, that I went and got them lunchbags and food for their lunches..how many kids like to eat red pepper sticks which seems to be on the menu every other day!!!..I printed out their monthly school menu and they checked what they liked and on the days they didn't like what was served they bring their lunches......I try to make it healthy but occasionally there is a Ding Dong or treat in it for a surprise..lol

My grandkids that live behind me, come over once in a while and pack lunches. They say I have better stuff than their parents. That means Twinkies, cookies, and things like that. I don't think about nutrition for them because that is what parents are for. LOL! All are in sports, healthy, and none of them are overweight, so to heck with rules.

I do have one grandson who is picky, but what he does like is healthy. It bugs us, but he absolutely refuses to try new things. Another grandson did that, but as he grew, so did his appetite, and now, he's a strapping army dude.
