School Lunches and Lunch "Nazis"

I know there are probably a hundred important more important community and political, national and international issues we could talk about , but one issue that we shouldn't forget about is school lunches.

I remember taking my sandwiches wrapped up in paper wrap and in a paper bag, and sometimes we even got to wrap it in plastic cling wrap, but that stuff was expensive so we didn't do that very often.

Very few school children around my age brought their recess or lunch in a container, it was all very disposable.

But nowadays there is pressure from teachers and P&C's not to mention the Greenies and the plastic-ware sales parties that sell special lunch boxes and containers for this or that. 

 They expect our school children to have their little designer lunches in $30 designer lunch boxes. Not just any containers but designer containers that have freezer box segments to keep the drinks cool and the sliced meat sandwiches cold.

Yes I know son, you can't find the lids, I can't them either. Take a bag, and put the biscuits in a ziplock bag or wrap them in Aluminium foil for today.

What do you mean your teacher won't let you take THAT for your lunch and you'll get in trouble if it is packed like that … Turn It Up.
