    Be grateful it wasn’t a plantain, beet and jícama sandwich, Paige.

    In high school I would only eat PB&J for lunch every day. My mom got tired of making it, but I never got tired of eating it. One morning she said, “Here, you make it.” And I did until I graduated high school.

    re: arye

    the lunches at my high school… well, it was better to wait 3.5 hours to eat at home.
    .
    Oregon Tech had a terrifically bad cafeteria when I was there. But they did have a decent salad bar and a mini deli. Ate a lot of sandwiches and salads. Somehow a school with so many smart people just couldn’t seem to figure out how to use a colander or rack to drain the grease from meats.
    .
    SOU’s cafeteria was quite good. I had no complaints when I was there.

    I’m surprised how many hospital cafeterias serve such unhealthy food and care little for necessary special diets._

    For HS I brought my lunch at least part of the time.

    Whole time I was in HS I brownbagged because the school food was so lousy, still is apparently, as the same contractor was refused bid at the state prison for poor quality.

    Nowadays you can’t bring PB&J to most schools, due to “peanut allergy”. At my daughters’ school, if you bring one, you have to sit at a special table. I get the girls various lunch meats, including ham and bologna, for variety. However, when I was in school, it was ham & cheese every day…and I made ’em.

    It cost only $0.35 for lunch at our high school cafeteria. I had no complaints with it. Some people did and I’ll guess they came from households which didn’t discourage complaining.

    Eh. Our school lunch has usually some cutlets or patties or meat sauce or cooked fish, with potatoes, potato mash or rice as side, plus salad. One mother complained that they give children food that they can’t recognize, and also, that as school cafeteria opens only 8:40 so children can’t have breakfast before that, they should have a chocolate bar machine in lounge.

    What the heck is this mother feeding her children, I have no idea… well, except for chocolate bars.

    or, there can be schools where there are a host of stupid rules and regulations. no backpacks, no jackets, no hats, no jewelry, no hugging, no high fives, no colored clothes, no running at all, no sports, must wear white socks, no long hair, limited bathroom breaks, zero tolerance, no drugs(even prescribed to the kid), no inhalers(asthmatics must use an inhaler in front of a school admin, even when the kid has an attack in the stairwell), no female hygiene products, no pre-marital sex outside of school, no secret marriages, dress code, no shorts, no yoga pants, no spaghetti straps, no jeans with knee holes, no makeup, no sweaters, etc….

    But is it real peanut butter and jelly or one of their mom’s attempts of being extra healthy by replacing it with vegetarian stuff.

    Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are vegetarian…

    Mix it up with other nut butters and preserves. Just as easy to make, with additional health benefits. I like almond butter best.

    We’ve had our kids make their lunches since later in Elementary school – I’m so glad we chose to do that. We just oversee now and then – to make sure they get some good stuff :). I think back to my mom making my lunches in high school and it just seems weird now.
