I was reading on mothering.commune tonight and there was a thread about kids school lunches. We (Maddy and I) have been talking about lunches and how her lunch differs from other kids. Apparently only her and the twins are the ONLY kids who don't bring juice to school. She does not drink juice at home so why would I send it with her? She has a nice water bottle so why change what's working? I asked her if she wanted me to send juice and she said no... she likes her water and besides "water is better for you mommy. Juice just rots your teeth."
We are also one of the only families that has not had a warning about lunch items. Her teacher insists on a no junk policy. No lunchables, no pop, chips, candy... no "fake" fruit (roll ups, fruit snacks) ... you get the point. Not stuff I would ever dream of feeding my kids for lunch anyways. She normally gets a sandwich of natural pb and honey on homemade whole wheat bread, raisens, fruit, yoguart. Sometimes carrots and hummus or celery. Last week I packed her a hard boiled egg and that was a huge hit. I just really don't get why nutrition is not more of a priority for families???
I have a brutal yeast infection.
