We definately don’t just buy tuck shop every day for our daughter – it would get too costly and too unhealthy for our liking. We basically pack the lunch boxes with snacks the evening before and make the sandwiches in the morning while the kids are eating brekky. We have 2 younger boys at kinder so making the 3 sandwiches takes 5-7 minutes max!!
Our school has weekly Subway delivery on one day and tuckshop/hotdogs on another day. Our daughter rarely asks for a tuck shop order, when she does we generally allow it as a treat but it would be once/month if that.
I make the school lunches (and work lunch for hubby!) in our house. Usually its a salad sandwich or a wrap and some pieces of fruit. There is a tuck shop at school but for the 5 or so minutes it takes and the control over (the majority!) of what what they are eating, its worth it.
