After the recent controversy surrounding an article on a Chicago school, which, in a poorly-executed plan to encourage healthier lunches for their students, made headlines when they reportedly banned homemade lunches, I am all the more grateful that we don't have to worry about a school telling us our kids are forced to eat what they are serving, whether they like it or not. We save on the brown bags and have the freedom of variety, health, cost and choice in our lunch options. This is my third installment of a "week's worth of lunches", you can click on the tag below to see others. Hope some of these simple, quick, nothing-fancy ideas spur your own solutions for jumping out of at-home lunch ruts with kids.
