You want the kids to eat well, but when it comes to school lunch, you have to consider a few more factors; time, convenience, sufficient nutrition to get them over that midday hump, and the right combo of presentation and yummy foods to ensure they actually eat it. After all, you have no control over school lunch once you launch them out the door. Perhaps that’s why it’s their favorite part of the day?
