|I say this respectfully, but perhaps the solution is that there is some dialogue between you and your dd about peer pressure. Seriously, if your dd is not eating because of what friends say, this is a recipe for disaster (pun intended). Pack what you feel is best and give her the tools to tell her friends that it's none of their business what she eats.|

Me and my wonderful husband serve God. Blessed with twin girls 2/11/11. <3
Kristy, wife to Josh proud mama to Katie: since 3/08 and Emma since 8/12.
I did have several conversations with her. She completely understands, but still came home with her lunch uneaten.
Fitting in and peer pressure are very different.
She isnt pressured by other kids to engage in bad behavior or dangerous activities.
She just really cares about her lunch looking different.
If more kids had lunches like hers, it wouldnt be a problem.
No one likes to be the ONLY kid who is totally different especially when they are really self conscious.
UNfortunatley most of the kids buy lunch and the foods are just really low quality, so thats not an option.
She has stomach and sensory problems and I have to pick my battles with her.
I told her as long as she eats her fruits before school and veggies with dinner that I'll do my best to make her lunches differently.
Im just looking for lunch ideas here. If it were that easy to say "eat what you get and dont worry about what everyone says" it would be great.
The mini bagels sound like something "normal" that she might like. Ill try that.
