Do it. Bite off more than you can chew. Do it for G's sake because he will be going to school too. Change has to start somewhere. And I am sure you will be supported because I am sure there are more moms like you who want things to change, but those moms don't know where to start. You should jump in feet first and blog all about it.

I think you are right. For now, I am trying to educate myself on how Ohio does things..and our school too. Don't want to come off as foolish.

My daughter went to lunch with her child on her first full day at school. Learned what her child ate in the time alotted. She keeps the lunches simple and involves the children in the creating of the lunch, so they only take things they will eat. She also sends them with a stainless steel water bottle with water instead juice or other drinks. Sometime she makes organic mac and cheese and sends it in a thermos. Her older children like to take homemade soup or other leftovers in a thermos. Good luck in making lunch a healthy lunch.
