The other day my 12 year old son mentioned that he had traded part of his lunch with his buddy. I asked him WHY?- especially because I pack him a hot meal everyday in a thermos. Ok, almost everyday. But that day his friend had an egg salad sandwich. That totally floored me (you traded for egg salad?) I was relieved and but I also knew that boy’s family and they always pack healthy lunches. I’m not too concerned about my son trading or on occasion buying lunch from the cafeteria. He’s a good eater and has an adventurous attitude towards food by any normal kid standards (e.g. blue strong cheeses, tripe, jelly fish, grilled calamari).
