    Ours has a mix. I started by getting DD healthier things, but she didn't like them, and ONLY wants hotdogs because that is what her friends get. So now she get a hotdog maybe once every few months.

    No, but that's be abuse DD1s school doesn't have one yet.
    ETA: Er, the above was autocorrected. It was meant to say that's because DD1s school doesn't have one yet.
    Oh dear

    Especially considering my BFF's mum gave her like $5 every day!
    If we did get money for the canteen it'd be $2....

    Do the younger (primary school aged) kids order from the canteen themselves? I remember when I was younger, my mum had the school canteen menu at home, would have to write on a paper bag what I wanted and put the money inside, the tuckshop lady would come around each morning and collect the orders and then come back around at lunch time and handout the orders. Older kids would just order from the canteen though and if you wanted something from the canteen at morning tea you would buy directly from the canteen. Is it done like that at school's still? Just wondering.. To answer your Question OP - My kids don't start school until next year, but I wont mind oredering from the canteen, not sure how often, probably Monday's as the kids usually eat the house clean over the weekend and I don't do grocery shopping until Monday afternoon's. Most of school menus are very healthy now days.

    I ended up letting dd get tuckshop today :-) can't wait to hear what she thought of it. What I did was after dropping dd off I went over to the tuckshop and ordered and payed. Still write it in paper bags too. I let her get for first break (little lunch) a tub if yogurt, a small bag of popcorn and a tub of 2 fruits. And for 2nd break she got a chicken, salad and mayo wrap with a rainbow paddle pop and a LOL. I used to love tuckshop when I was little didn't get it often when young but I remember in grade 7 getting it every Friday. I remember the menthol drops and eucalyptus drops slush puppies burger man and funny faces (long skinny ice blocks)

    We have the paper bag for a lot of it, but they sell fresh fruit, yoghurt, those fruit salad cups in juice and some other things over the counter. Preppies have to order, they have no access to that part of the school.
