    Our school's milk program is a punch card system, so it only gets punched when he gets milk. If he's not there or doesn't want milk that day, then it doesn't get punched.

    Yes I understand that. Ours wasn't like that. Plus I like to know that I kept my kids milk cold and not worry how long it has been on a cart to be handed out etc. So much cheaper to send your own.

    Bump! Share your lunch ideas ladies. :D

    Samantha is in high school, so she likes to take $ and wait in the cafeteria line.

    Victoria (10 yrs old), packed herself: a mustard and ham sandwich, carrots with dilly dip, granola bar, yogurt tube, mandarin orange, and a small pkg of Welch's gummies.

    I have to admit, with DD away at uni, I am enjoying not ensuring lunch items she will eat are on hand and packing lunches this year!
