Packing Your Child's Lunch

Packing Your Child's Lunch

Take a close look at this menu. Sounds like it's from a nice French bistro, non? It's actually a French school lunch menu.

We spotted it at Stephmodo and were pleased (for the students) and envious (ourselves) at the same time. When we were young, it seemed half the class bought their lunch while the other half brought theirs. Today, the parents we speak to all seem to favor packing a lunch. With all of the wonderful lunch boxes and bags, and the bento box craze, it could be a fun thing to do. But it probably has something to do with the school lunch offerings in the U.S. as well. There has been much coverage about less than nutritious lunches offered in schools. As a parent I know that if my school offered such delicious and varied lunches as the French school menu pictured, we would definitely be buying. Parents out there, do you currently pack your child's lunch (or do you plan on doing so)? Why or why not?
