She also sought help from other parents online and asked what food they are packing.
Can I see everyone’s limp fastest lunches? I want to see what people pack after a night or morning where someone has had a meltdown, ‘she wrote.

Some said they order lunches through the school cafeteria, while others pack ham and cheese toasties.
“Lunch order, so grateful my school is using an app so I don’t even have to look for money to give them,” said one mother.
“Ham and cheese sandwich from the bakery, some fruit and yogurt – our shop hasn’t been open for over a year,” said another.
A third said, “A sandwich is my quick lunch, although I usually make slices and quiches for freezing.”
