  2. I can do more than relate. I can say with certainty that my kids never had it so good in the first couple of weeks. For them it was a plain old sandwich from day one. They always had a good breakfast and dinner, so I was never fussed about lunch which they didn't eat a lot of the time anyaway.

  3. Mine are grateful for a jam sandwich and a baby-bell.

    In fact I switched to school dinners ages ago. Far less hassle.

  4. AHH.

    See, we've heard of school dinners, and seen them in movies and such, but we don't have them here.

  6. Hi Natalie, and welcome :)

    Yes, our canteen hasn't sent out the new order forms yet, or I would have been tempted already.
