Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

today was the first day i have ever had to pack my daughter's lunch (4yo). she was having a picnic at school (daycare). which consisted of:
PB&J, 3 laffy taffy's, elf stripped cookies, spiderman shaped gram cracker bites, yogurt covered raisins, and mandarin oranges.... Odd mix, but i completely forgot. This lunch rocks compared to some Nyuk Nyuk Nyuk! lunchable.

I only packed my sons lunch when they went on field trips. I always made him 2 fried bologna sandwiches. It was a treat for him. Each one had 2 pieces of bologna, cheese & mustard. 1 was cut in half, the other was quartered because he would share it with 4 of his friends. They all thought he was lucky because he had fried bologna sandwiches. I don't know why, but boys love those. Or a least southern boys do. And it seems like most men do to.

Never packed lunch for my kids. They always wanted to be one of the crowd. And since many of their classmates were on reduced lunch programs, that meant buying lunch.

No cafeteria for my kindergartener, so all parents have to send bag lunches.

I follow a simple formula:
-sandwich/main dish
-dairy (yogurt or cheese cubes)
-crunchy snack (nuts, pretzels, granola)

A rock, a used book of matches (with 3 matches left) and a broken piece of glass: if they don't kill it, clean it, and cook it themselves then they don't eat.

At least that's the way my kids describe it.

We pack for our kids daily. Always a turkey and cheese sandwich. (Heaven help you if you try to pack PB&J or run out of bread mid-week), a yogurt or pudding, a granola bar of some kind (Rice Krispie treat is passable, but if it's one of those hard-brick granola bars, there will be mutiny), grapes, and something salty.

When I was a kid it was mushy PB&J, a LIttle Debbie, chips & a thermos of Kool Aid!

I don't pack lunches. They can pack their own.
