OK Moms, if you're anything like I used to be, you have no idea about the junk they feed our kids for hot lunch.  But now that you're reading this, you don't have an excuse anymore, you really must send in cold lunches with your kids! As you'll read in this post, school districts have the same problem as everyone else these days, they need to meet their budget.  They don't have unlimited funds, and even if more funds were available, let's face it, they probably wouldn't put healthier hot lunch food on the top of their lists.  Once you get into the cold lunch habit it's really no big deal.  Read more at this post about why this is such an important topic, and what is so bad about school lunch food:  healthy school lunch ideas.  If you have more good ideas that I may have missed, I hope you'll share them.  Also, please mention in the comments that you came over from CatholicMom.com!
