If a kid is in that position, they should pack something to eat. Many of the people in the thread, however, have said their kids eat lunch at school and come home and eat three hours later.

Yep. I believe food is an individual need and choice. Which is why I don't care what they do as long as my kid is allowed to bring his own food.

I really like your approach to health eating and might steal it for when i have children someday. I feel like your approach helps teach children to listen to their bodies and not just eat all day because things taste good (not that fruit and veggies dont...lol). If they are truly hungry they will eat the fruit and veg, if they turn it down and request chips they obviously arent really hungry. Thanks for the suggestion

Thank you. That's very nice. Part of it is because I learned the hard way. I was always rewarded with food as a kid and paid a price for it. A saying I learned in Weight Watchers that I share with my family is that we "eat to live not live to eat".

DS always took his lunch and probably still would. That solves the problem of the garbage that the schools served.
