My daughter went on a field trip and wanted a school bagged lunch. Our previous school district was great with separating lunches for allergies. Yesterday my daughter had PB&J in her lunch.

He eats fruit pouches but will never put fruit in his mouth apart from the odd Apple slice which is not eaten only put to mouth.
I am worried about nutritional intake and feeling pressure from… read more
Suggestion on how to help your server in a restaurant be sure you don't get something you shouldn't have
