Both eat all.the.time. Healthy food though so I don't care, but some days I'm just like wow, you ate more than me and I'm pregnant and always hungry!

I find the key to getting them to eat more at lunch at school is to have it ready to eat and small bits, vs a big item, so this fits the bill.
This is what we do for school lunch too. Kinda a create your own lunchable. DS1 eats much better and doesn't come home starving.
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.
