Is it me - or are there more parents out there who are frustrated with the fact that their school going kid bring back their lunch untouched? With me - does not matter what I give - it comes back ! Excuses are - didnt' want to spend time in eating - that cuts into my play time ! The answer to the question "but, didn't you feel hungry" - usually is, "yes, I was hungry later on, but it was ok - not too bad" ... and then all hell breaks loose when we get home ... its sheer hunger that leads to tantrums and fuss!
I tried sending healthy food, I tried sending junk food - its not the food in the end, its the lack of interest in eating.
How does one get around this ?
