School lunches revised

So, after a week of trying out our school lunch bins...we found that the boys will never choose a fruit or vegetable when given the choice. Hence, our revision. Now, we have three bins. One for dairy/meat, one for fruit and vegetables, and one for snacks (crackers, seaweed, pudding, fruit cups, etc). They can take up to two from each bin to help balance out those lunches.
Parenting has to be flexible. You have to be willing to go through the trial and error each day to find what works best for your family.
What do you do for school lunches?

  1. I love the idea of bins, but with remodeling and small kitchen to start with, I opted out of that program. My kids have to take a main course (sandwich, food in a thermos, meat and crackers...something main coursey), a veggie, a fruit and a snack. If there is something else in the house that they want to add to it then that is fine as long as the basics are there... Main course, fruit, veggie. It works for us.
