Side items might include graham crackers, raw carrots or celery (noticing a crunchy theme?), and a cookie. I also had a Barbie thermos with a lid that doubled as a cup. I thought this feature was the coolest thing ever - sometimes I even put my pinkie finger in the air when I drank from it.
And speaking of lunch, Joanna featured this trailer a few days ago about a boy living in New York City who buys a school lunch every day for a few months and takes a video of the food. He compares the food to what the school lunch menus states. There are plenty of times the menu mentions a food, but it is absent from his footage - not sure if that means he didn't take it, wasn't offered it, or the cafeteria had run out of that side. But I did find it oddly suspicious that it's usually the veggies that are missing . .
Here's the trailer:
You can watch the full movie here (it's less than 20 minutes).
Did you pack a lunch? What were your school lunches like?
