Daily Diary: The Same Lunch Every Single Day Of Her Life


Do your children like… repetition? I almost don’t want to call it that because it’s not that my daughter will do it a few times in a row. It’s the only lunch she requests – there is no other option. She is completely content with a Arnold pocket thin Nutella sandwich. I mean… for the rest of her LIFE.

Oddly enough, I’m pretty sure I had a ham and mayo sandwich for my entire elementary career. Isn’t it funny that I won’t eat ham as an adult? I wonder why!!!? LOL

What should I do? Do I just continue on with this pattern? Or do I try to force a change on her?  It’s not an unhealthy lunch. The bread is 100 calories and we smear the Nutella on rather thinly. Her side is usually some fruit. So, it’s not that she’s eating poorly… I’m just wondering if it’s normal???

Then again… what is normal?

If you ask Natalie – she is the happiest girl on the block. She eats her sandwich like it’s the first time she’s seen it every single time! LOL.

  1. It’s totally “normal”! My daughter eats a peanut butter and jelly sandwich every school day except hot lunch days. Oddly during the summer I can get her to eat something else at lunch. So… who knows what goes through their little brains. 🙂

  2. I ate a ham and mayo sandwich on white bread everyday as a child too…even the THOUGHT of deli ham makes me nauseous LOL

  3. My sister ate Cheez Wiz on white bread for all her elementary years. She is a fully functioning 29-year old now, lol! So yes, it is completely normal!
