Do you know what your kids eat at school? Often times it is NOT as balanced as they try to convince you that it is. It usually is all processed and full of sodium, sugar, preservatives, chemicals, additives, hormones, and even antibiotics.
If you have the time and resources to be able to pack your child a lunch, then I urge you to do so.
You then know what they are eating and where it came from.
I pack my daughters lunch 99% of the time. Not only does she dislike school lunches, I know how damaging some of the school food can be to her health.
Avoid lunchables or similar lunch products. Instead aim for things like; sandwich on whole wheat bread (turkey, PB & J, Chicken, veggie), orange, apple, carrot sticks, celery sticks with PB on them, whole wheat crackers, cheese cubes, nuts, seeds, yogurt, banana, and always include a reusable bottle of water filled with water.
There are endless healthy options when packing kids' lunches, and a lot of creative ways of making it appealing to them.
