I struggle with school lunches because they want fast food and I’m trying to feed them less expensive cold sandwiches. I do purchase some things that can be warmed. But on a tight budget, lunch meat is less expensive and goes farther. I’ll buy the meats and cheeses I KNOW they like…but I usually throw out or run out. If I buy a lot, it’s throw out. If I buy a little less, it’s run out. I freeze what I can when I buy a lot, if I remember. But it doesn’t thaw out as good as fresh.
More complaints.

My struggle? Need cheap, easy, not too boring lunches for my boys!
They get sick of the same old thing, homeschooling means I don’t have a ton of time to spend preparing meals & that my budget is tight since we are a one income family.
You could fix all that! :D

Biggest struggle right now for lunch is that I have two little ones who are picky eaters….I want them to eat, but to get the nutrition they need also!

We homeschool and I struggle with coming up with something everyone will eat each day. It’s hard to make 4 different lunches!

I struggle with figuring out what to serve for lunch quickly–with three under 5, they all go from “not hungry, can’t eat” to “I’m so hungry I can’t stand it!” in the space of 5 minutes…sometimes less. :-P

My biggest struggle is being able to keep the lunch cold! I’d love to have the sandwich be cold without sending a frozen yogurt tube every day or something that can get lost. 4 kids and that gets pricey!

I also don’t love sending juice boxes. I’d rather do water with fruit or milk.

My biggest struggle is packing my lunch every morning and then still wanting to eat it when I get to work. Sometimes its in my bag but I still choose to go to Subway for something different.

I struggle with variety in lunchboxes. My kids get tired of the same old PB&J or turkey sandwiches.

Right now with 4 lunches to make so far, I run out of things to put in there that will keep them from throwing it away!

We are in a rut with lunch. Also there is constant bickering at the table that drives me bonkers.

I find trying to get a variety of foods is a challenge – boredom sets in and then appetites disappear!

My biggest struggles with lunch for my 3 year old are getting her to sit still to eat and also the only sandwich she eats is PB&J which of course is not allowed at her preschool. Makes packing a lunch a little difficult sometimes. Hopefully I can get her to start trying cold cuts.

I struggle with packing lunches. I want to send my kids to school with good, homemade lunches, but it seems more expensive than letting them buy lunches at school.

Reply

Sherry August 15, 2011 at 7:28 pm

My trouble is trying to find things that are quick to put together that isn’t boring. Seems like if I find a good price on lunch meat and I stock up…I end up having to throw some out.

My biggest struggle with lunches is to find something quick and easy that my kids will be excited to eat, that is also hearty enough to keep them full until dinner.

My biggest struggle with lunch is variety. We all get bored with the same sandwiches. I have one that goes to work (hubby), one in college, one in middle school and one that I homeschool. I need help!! :)
