I'm putting out the call for a brown bag lunch discussion! Specifically for kids, though you're welcome to talk about your own brown-bag experiences if you have them.
I haven't spent much brainpower on a cost-benefit analysis yet, and I don't have a good repertoire of easy, healthy things to send with my kids for lunch yet either; suggestions in both of those realms are highly encouraged.
I spent $1.35 a day on my daughter's lunch and $2.00 a day on my son's. Can I do a better job, cost-wise, than that if I send them lunches from home? Will I do a better job, health-wise, than the schools will?
What have your experiences been? What do you do for your kids' lunches?
