My son will be attending school & has the option of a hot school lunch. Actually, all the kids eat the lunch. It is organic but definitely not TF or grain free. It includes some foods that are more processed than I'd would like but the sample menu is not bad (fruits & veggies, no additives or artificial flavors/preservatives). Definitely more grains than I feel are good & I fear that he'll eat mostly the grains!
But to be honest, I would not mind not having to prepare his lunch! I work full time & am changing jobs & the thought of pulling together a healthy lunch each day is daunting!
Also, there's a social aspect - I believe he would be the only one not eating the hot lunch. Community is so important to my outgoing little guy & I don't want food to be a point of isolation for him.
So... What would you do in this situation?
