"I'm starving." This from my daughter the other day after slamming the car door shut! "Don't ask me about my day Mom, I'm so hungry! They shrunk the pepperoni cheese bread we loved!"
I just laughed. This coming from a girl who takes maybe two or three bites of something and often says, "I'm so full!"
Seems school lunches have dramatically changed. Just ask your child! Yes, calories in school lunches are pared back - especially when it comes to carbs and protein. The servings of fruits and vegetables have doubled.
The outcry isn't new even for my children though. They don't usually eat everything that's served so they would often come to the car after school STARVING, even before the new changes kicked in!
I often had a snack waiting for my kids for the drive home. A simple solution to the school lunch drama!
School lunches aren't going to please every child. Get used to the complaints. And keep a snack handy!
