  1. Question and Answer
    My daughter will be attending a summer pre-school this summer 5 days a week. Unlike her current pre-school (where her food is included) her new school requires her to bring a sack lunch every day because they are either on field trips every day or at the park. While I don't mind packing a...

    My almost 3 year old is going to pre-school 3 days a week this summer. We have to pack his lunch. He won't eat sandwiches, other than PB&J, and the school is a nut free zone. Suggestions for what to feed him? He won't really eat meat, so I am at a loss for what to send. Nothing that...

  9. Food for Kids
    My kids are required to eat a fruit, dairy, protein, starch and veggie at lunch. I am running low on ideas for the veggies. We've been doing peppers (red, orange & yellow ~ won't touch green), cukes, and carrots. A LOT! I feel like they are going to get board and rebel soon. There is not...

    My DH and I are both returning to college after14 years (it's funny how minimum wage jobs will make you reconsider the torture of sitting through boring lectures)!! Anyway, as you can imagine, we are short of money and it's so much more frugal to bring our lunch to school than buy from the...

  12. Food for Kids
    I'm looking for some frugal lunch ideas for my kids. It's so easy to heat a store bought frozen dinner for them, but I want to try and avoid that. My 6 year old is super picky. I was thinking of cooking large batches of items and freezing in single portions.

    Just for a strange little experiment, I decided to calculate how much I am spending on school lunches (some prices are rough estimates,) Despite the fact that I get some of the convenience items on sale these things are adding up! Here are the totals of three lunches I sent this past week: #1...

    Jeez! They went up again for the elementary schools. Now they are $1 per kid per day. That's $10 per week just for the boys' lunch! I'm definitely going to keep making their lunches. Most of the time they end up bringing a home lunch anyway, just because they either don't like what's on the...
