OMG, my daughter just started this (she's in 1st grade). It is truly annoying isn't it? She kept telling me that she ran out of time. I told my daughter that if is she doesn't eat her lunch, she can either eat if for snack when she gets home or she can pack it for lunch the next day. Guess what? She's eating her lunch except for maybe 1 thing.

It might be something at school that is detouring him from eating. I had the same issue. It took one trip to the school to find out why. The quicker you get done with lunch, the faster you get outside for recess. Take one lunch trip, preplanned with the school of course, go in and eat with him.

Well my son eats at 7am for breakfast he eats waffles, then about 10am is snack time and he eats cheese it, then his lunch is at 12pm. He get home at 4pm and he wants to eat right away because he so hungry.

I agree with Helen. It is not an unreasonable request to eat their lunch. If he doesn't eat it, he won't get sick and he won't starve. Just make sure that you don't give any other food until the next meal times. As much as we love our kids, they can manipulate us through food and eating, and we are doing them no favours by allowing this to continue. You can't force feed them, but you can control this behaviour by removing all in-between meals snacks and reducing breakfast portions if necessary, until the unwanted behaviours cease.
