Moms Talk: Brown Bag or Buy?
The place where parents talk.
When I was in high school, I'd get up late each morning. Generally that meant enough time for a fast shower, gathering my things and packing a lunch.
When I was in school, half my friends would bring a brown bag lunch and half would end up buying food from the cafeterria—grilled cheese and bosco sticks were probably the most popular.
So, when it comes to your kid's lunch, what's a parent to do?
As a parent, do you know what the cafeteria options at your kid's school are? Are you satisfied with the school's offerings, or are there some items you would prefer to see over others?
This is not to say that brown bag lunches are necessarily healthier options for kids. For some of the kids I went to school with, packing a lunch meant not a sandwich and a fruit cup, but a bag of chips and a pop tart.
If your kids buy, what are the costs associated with a hot lunch everyday? Does it add up quickly, or is it generally cost effective for you? With people still cutting back at home, does that mean cutting back in the lunchroom too?
So today on Moms Talk, let's discuss all things lunch.
