Yes once a week. They have healthy food and some unhealthy food.
They have sushi, veg burgers, fruit salad etc. but they also have chicken nuggets, fish fingers etc. DD usually gets sushi since its her obsession these days but sometimes she will get chicken nuggets or noodles.

DD1 has never. Well I lie, when they have a sausage sizzle day run through the tuckshop I take sausages in for her and she gets to participate in that...so twice. Oh she got a bag of pretzels for free with her birthday voucher so three times all last year.
Our school has a mix of healthy and unhealthy like Janesmum's school. DD1 doesn't order from the canteen because she has multiple life threatening food allergies and I'm not taking the risk. Her school canteen will only be open for another 3 weeks at this stage as there's no one to run it.

We do it as a reward thing.Like if hes done really well at school,got on star 4 or learnt all his sight words etc.
In summer hes usually takes some coins from his piggy bank to buy frozen animals (like 30c little iceblocks) occasionally,and buys his friends one too

Ours is healthy but I don't use it because its expensive compared to made it myself lunch, and our tuckshop is short on volunteers and sometimes orders aren't ready in time for lunch and kids wait til the end of break or miss out.
Simpler and more reliable to make my own.

I let DS have a lunch order every Wednesday. He has to dry the dishes every night to earn this. Wednesday is also shopping day so we are usually pretty much out of everything by that day, regardless how much I buy the week before!!
The food in our canteen is really healthy too.

DD1 has just started, and I think at this stage she can order her lunch on a Friday. I've explained that she will only have healthy lunches from home (no chips, poppers etc) so once a week she can have a lunch order. I'll encourage her to chose a sandwich.
Our canteen has a fair bit of junky food & no restrictions at all on what we can send in lunch boxes. I'm still figuring out if that's a good or bad thing.

DS will have a tuckshop/canteen this year as he starts High School, but DD who is still in primary doesn't have one at her school.
Still unsure what the menu is like, or even if I'll get a menu from DSs school..they seem to have info on everything except that.. I guess I'll find out in the next week when he starts.
Unsure what I'll do in regards to buying it... DS is pretty fussy about his lunchbox and he is SO excited about being able to take peanut butter sandwiches this year

We were hardly ever allowed food from the canteen and it sucked!
Especially considering my BFF's mum gave her like $5 every day!
If we did get money for the canteen it'd be $2....
