My dd is starting preschool 2 days a week, next week. They eat family style for lunch, but the food is not so hot. It looks nutritious, but the quality leaves something to be desired. I am going to send her lunch, but I'm trying to imitate what is on the schools menu, unless it is gross or my dd won't eat it.
Schools menu - taco, lettuce, cheese, rice, orange wedges
My menu - taco meat, lettuce, salsa, tortillas, oranges
Schools menu - pizza, peas, carrots, pineapple
My menu - homemade pizza, green beans, carrot sticks, apple wedges
Schools menu - cooks choice (that usually means some kind of lunch meat sandwich on gross whole wheat bread, that's not actually very whole wheat)
My menu - Natural sausages and cheese chunks, homemade biscuit with butter, blueberries, and small salad
Schools menu - fish nuggets, broccoli with cheese, peaches, dinner roll
My menu - chicken nugget, steamed broccoli, rice, berries, homemade dinner roll
Hopefully this will go over well.
