Had an idea for a blog this morning while I was going through chompy's lunchbox:

1. You post pictures of what you pack and then you post pictures of what comes back.

2. And then you bang your head on the counter and say, "You said you wanted the soup!" "You asked for that!" "What was wrong with the strawberries?" "Sure, he ate the chips and the luna bar..."

3. ???

4. PROFIT.

Be thankful it comes back to you. I didn't want to hurt my mum's feelings, so anything I didn't eat I carefully hid away in my bedroom cupboards/school desk. Not sure why it took me so long to realise the digusting mouldy food smell would eventually reveal the secret.

"But I didn't like the bread."

You said you wanted that bread.

"It didn't taste good."

It's the same bread you had last night and you really liked it.

"Well, it tastes weird now."

No more food for you!

Or a two year old thing? I was hoping she'd grow out of it.

Leela: Cereal and milk in a bowl please Mama!
I make her cereal in a bowl, pausing to show her every step and getting her to agree
Once everything is done
Leela: NO MILK!!! NO MILK!!! NO MILK!!!!

Sorry kid. I am not making you a second bowl.

I am reading "Its not about the Broccoli" by Dina Rosen, that Ariann recommended, and its brilliant. Maybe it can help with Chompy, TRS/GlueGun? http://itsnotaboutnutrition.squarespace.com/

Or alternatively, how old is chompy? I started packing my own lunches when I was in 7th grade. I also went grocery shopping with my mom a lot so I always had a lot of input over what I wanted to pack myself for lunch, or she would ask before she went what she should get me if I wasn't going to go with her.

^^my mom had me pack my own lunchbox since 2nd grade (with supervision) so there wasn't much of me wasting food (although I would still do trades for the kind of junk food my mother wouldn't buy). I know it must be more difficult these days though with all the allergens you have to avoid though...

He won't eat the fruit we put in the lunchbox. It might be one or two (!) strawberries, but he won't touch it. (Even if he happily eats strawberries, for instance, at other times.) How about a few raspberries? Nope. Some broc and goddess dressing for dipping? No. I can't just leave out all fruits and vegetables from his lunch! I can't give in! I must keep putting in this stuff he doesn't eat.

At least he leaves the food there so you know what he has eaten? I remember when I was at primary school (age 5 to 12) frequently seeing other children throwing their untouched, still wrapped sandwiches into the bin. And I mean VERY frequently- I'm sure there were lots, maybe the majority, of children who did it every day.

I do remember my mum asking me to give her a list of sandwich fillings I particularly liked that would include a bit of fruit or veg, such as peanut butter and banana, lettuce and ham, etc but then I was one of those weird children who would happily eat my sandwich, never mind that it was on wholemeal bread and still had crusts on.

Hahaha. I do this and I'm an adult! I'll make my lunch the night before work and everything sounds good. And looking forward to eating it the next day! I get to work and lunchtime rolls around. My lunch from home sounds terrible so I go to the Co-op for a three salad plate instead.
