The cold lunch at its best is not the most desirable food for taking care of the food requirements of the child, and when it is to be repeated every day of the school year is very apt to become tiresome and monotonous. The feeling that anything will do for the lunch box is altogether too prevalent. The lack of time is the most common excuse for the poorly prepared lunch box. It does not take any more time to put up wholesome lunches in an attractive way, but it does take thought and an appreciation of what the boy or girl needs in the food line.
