I pack my child's lunch daily. She gets 'healthy' options such as garlic and herb goat cheese on WASA cracker bread, Nutella on organic multi-grain bread, veggies and/or fruit, soft-boiled organic egg, carrot sticks with dip, home-made all natural chicken noodle soup, Kashi cereal bars, Kashi cheddar cracker (like cheez-its, but healthy), Kashi or BearNaked granola and cookies, organic Hummus with tortilla or crackers, cold home-made pizza. At my daughter's school there is 'no sharing food' rules because of the common food allergies. So, she eats what I pack and there is no other option. She may order lunch once a month, as a treat. School lunches claim to be healthy, but how healthy can poultry be when the food is cooked in a factory, and refrozen, and doesn't spoil for 2 years? And the 'fruit' they serve is marinated in corn syrup? And veggies have more than 2 days worth of the Sodium intake a child needs? Too many -glicerides, too high carbohydrates, too much MSG and other preservatives! I am a full time student, full time worker, and single parent to 2 children. If I have time to eat healthy, and pack healthy things for my children, anybody can... and should!
