Quoting Kaibutsu:" If I was having a hard time with ideas and the daycare offered lunch I would probably just go with that, lol."
yeah especially now that the hot lunch program has been reformed to offer more whole grain and fresh food items. There is also alternative options such as a hot dog or PB &J sandwich if your child won't eat a certain main dish.
I have included the suggestions on my list for the dad. I know he is trying the best he can and I am very glad that he has been so open to suggestions. I know he appreciates the help.
