School Lunch Programs and Your Children

My children are adults now, and how quickly that time went by...yes parents, it does go quickly, just like those of us who have finished raising our children say it does, and just like I was told when my children were young. There were days when I couldn't wait for the day when they were grown and I had more free time, but let me tell you, I miss being a Mom more than I ever imagined.

When my children were in school, I made their lunches until they were in middle school. I did it for a while then, but it became apparent that this just wasn't the "in" thing to do, so I would hand each of my children their dollar and change, this went on right through high school.

I know what I HOPED they would buy when they went to school, but what they actually did buy us another story. I'm sure their bodies craved good food many days of the week, but a hallways lined with snack and soda machines on the way into the cafeteria were probably a temptation on other days.
