I try to send my kiddos to school with healthful lunches. Homemade items or fun little cheese shapes...I don't want them to get bored of getting a "sack" lunch. I sent hummus with pita chips yesterday as a side and my kids came home complaining that all of their classmates were "grossed out"...told them it "looked disgusting" and all kinds of other negative comments. I feel bad for my kids being made fun of but I feel even worse for the kids that are missing out on great food!
My second grader did say that a few of his classmates tried it and said "yum". I guess beyond second grade you get less adventurous.
Maybe I'll send them with home made sushi next week! Hah
