Hallie has been struggling to eat her sandwiches during lunch while she’s at school. I’m not sure why I even asked, but one day I asked if she ate everything in her lunch. She looked at me sheepishly and reluctantly told me that she ate everything but her sandwich. I thought maybe this was a one time deal. The next day I made her a half sandwich. I asked again. And again And the next five days after that. I took out her treat. I took out her Go-Gurt. She still never eats her sandwich! The first time it didn’t bother me too much, but now knowing that I send her with a sandwich (because I have to send her with something so her teacher doesn’t think I’m neglecting the poor child!) that she throws away every day and then comes home complaining how starving she is.
So I switched up the PB sandwich and let her pick. Turkey and Cheese. She still didn’t eat it. Yet, she comes home STARVING (imagine this in a whiny girl voice) every single day. This shouldn’t bother me nearly as much as it does! She no longer gets any snacks after school if she doesn’t eat her lunch…
What am I doing wrong here?
Clearly sandwiches are not her thing…dang it. What else do you put in a lunch that doesn’t have to be heated up or refrigerated?? Please share!
