Hey Rob

I know my own children of high school age choose not to take lunch to school, I’ve gone through periods were I’ve made their sandwiches only to find them under their beds or in the kitchen bin afterwards. I stopped putting money on their lunch cards as I buy food from the supermarket in order for them to take packed lunches. It’s too expensive for me to pay for 3 children school lunches at £150 per month. I think in your situation I would encourage the kids to utilise whatever mum has in the cupboards to make some lunch to take with them, I try and encourage we kids to be independent and if they make it then they’re more likely to eat it. My own experience is that choose not to make it, doesn’t make me happy but they’re getting to an age where they are responsible and I can’t spoon feed them forever . Hope that’s helpful
