“Cardi B packed a huge school lunch for her 4-year-old daughter Kulture” links

Cardi B showed off what she packed for Kulture’s school lunch and people had a lot of feelings. I’m not bothered by the sugar or the quality of the meal (it looks like good food) but holy crap, that’s so much food for a 4-year-old!! [LaineyGossip]

    JFC Lohan is pregnant??? End times, indeed.

  2. Tacky says:

    I believe Mac-n-cheese and chicken nuggets are the two main food groups for toddlers.

  3. Snuffles says:

    I wonder if that’s Kulture’s lunch and snacks for the day. Does Kindergarten have snack time? Or maybe Kindergarten lunch is like prison and you use the snacks for bartering.

    • Tiffany:) says:

      I’d guess it’s breakfast and lunch and snacks for a long day. The fruit loop instant breakfast and cereal make me think that.

    • BeanieBean says:

      That’s what I was thinking–maybe it’s snacks & lunch for the day. Maybe there’s some after school time at day care & some is for that. Or they’re hitting all the foods she likes in hope she at least eats some of it.

      • Jen D says:

        Yeah, that’s not super surprising. That would cover a couple of snacks. It’s miserable for kids if they’re hungry at school. Packing more than they need (especially if you’re financially capable) is a good way to make sure they stay full

  4. Normades says:

    Everything looks fine except the fruit loops ( but Kulture probably only eat the fruit loops).

  5. lucy2 says:

    LOL at that amount of food. If her daughter is anything like my friend’s 4 year old, it would take like 2-3 days to eat all that.

    • Sarem says:

      Cardi has little girls. Little girls now want huge, fancy lunches so they can share with their buddies. I routinely pack my 8 yo as much or more than her 15/17 yo brothers.

  6. K says:

    Just came to proclaim my obsession with caftans and Queen Latifah. I collect them they are everything.

  7. IShouldBeWorking says:

    The food may be for the full day if she goes to all-day preschool/child care. Before our school switched to providing all meals we had to send a lunch and a snack and it looks like she may have a breakfast or morning snack in there too. My kids eat breakfast before they leave the house but several in their class eat at school depending on their schedule.

  8. j.ferber says:

    I bet Cardi’s daughter shares with all her friends so it’s like a picnic every day. Adorable.

    • TIFFANY says:

      That is what I was thinking as well. Kulture probably came home and said she shared her food so Cardi makes sure there is more than enough for everyone.

    • Normades says:

      I’m sure Kulture’s friends have mom’s that pack them equally great lunches.

  9. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    From what I’ve seen of kids, if you give them broccoli, and fruit loops, and chicken nuggets, and fruit, and mac n/ cheese, and juice, and water . . . they will eat the fruit loops, nuggets, mac n cheese, and drink the juice. I wonder if the fruit and broccoli end up being thrown out? It’s great to give kids choices, but most kids will stick to the unhealthy stuff if they can.

  10. Tootsie McJingle says:

    I have a kid at my daycare center that has a lot of allergies, so he brings a lunch instead of eating the school provided lunch. His mom packs breakfast, lunch, and snack so his lunch looks kind of like this, although Kulture’s looks even bigger. But he ends up throwing so much of it out because he just can’t eat that much. It’s such a waste. We’ve sent home the extra food just to show that he can’t eat the quantities that she sends, but she still sends a lot. I understand that she wants to make sure he isn’t hungry. I feel that at a parent level. But I don’t think I’ve ever seen him finish more than half.

  11. JM says:

    That story about Boebert’s son is heart breaking. Her oldest is 16 and her youngest is 9. CPS better do a more thorough investigation into this.

  12. The Recluse says:

    One of these days the Boebert family is going to make the news in ways that are so much worse than they have been already. You can see it coming.

    • BeanieBean says:

      That was just awful. You know he’s been this way through their whole marriage. I feel badly for those kids. Her, well, whatever, good she’s divorcing him.

  13. Miasys says:

    I’m giving Cardi a pass. I too threw a ton of things into my kiddo’s lunchbox, desperately hoping she’d eat something. For a couple of years, I swore that kid was like one of those air plants, surviving on nothing.

  14. j.ferber says:

    I absolutely adore Cardi. She is just so good at everything she does. And I really think she’s a caring and kind person in general.

  15. Rnot says:

    It seems like there are at least 3 different days of lunches in the pictures.

  16. Pointillist says:

    Black mothers looking after their babies and the internet has to judge.

    • Jess says:

      Cardi B isn’t Black and she did post the pictures for everyone to see but it looks fine to me.

      • Ghoul says:

        “ She has a Dominican father and a Trinidadian mother of African and Spanish descent and she identifies as an Afro-Latina.[4][2”

      • Pointillist says:

        Thank you, Ghoul.

        Jess: While you’re outside touching grass, read up on how Black mothers are judged.

    • Christine says:

      Sadly, this and breastfeeding bring out the assholes on the internet, and it’s just a mom thing. The aid when my son was in preschool told me my 3 year old was embarrassed because he was the only kid not signed up for the hot lunch program (he wasn’t, and he was 3). I told her it was my goal in life to make sure he wasn’t a picky kid who only ate highly processed food, and to mind her own business, and she gave me the hairy eyeball from then on out.

      If you ever want to witness the insanity, Babycenter is the place these people go to congregate and prop each other up.

  17. Mcmmom says:

    I think each picture is a different day for Kulture’s lunch – I don’t think that is all for one day.

    And if that’s the case – it’s not THAT much. I used to pack my kids’ lunches with a mix of stuff, too. I have zero issues with her packing fruit loops – if a 4 year old is also eating brocolli, I’m fine with them eating some junk. It’s all about balance!

  18. Mcali02 says:

    I swear to God now we are shaming mothers for packing big lunches? People need to go touch some grass then go kick some rocks.

  19. Fabiola says:

    I think people are just upset at all the food waste since there’s no way a child will eat that much and if they are then you are setting them up for obesity.

    • Normades says:

      Yes. Nutritionally she has all the food groups covered. And that looks like an excellent lunch….for me! Afterwards a 4 year old is gonna just pick and punch over it. Her friends have their own lunches so there’s no «  sharing « like said above. Most that stuff is going in the trash.

    • Mary says:

      I absolutely agree with both of your points @Fabiola, however, I think maybe there is something else going on prompting her to pack so much food for her daughter.

      When I was a kid, a looooong time ago, I went to a very small parochial school where all of the children were able to bring healthy packed lunches from home and we did not share. Sometimes, our classes would go on day jaunts with students from other schools and the first time I did this my mother packed an entire large brown grocery bag stuffed full of food and snacks that I was usually not allowed to eat (including an entire family size bag of chips!). I understood very quickly why she did that when a whole group of students did not have anything to eat for lunch. I happily gave away most of my lunch and was very proud of my mother for packing so much so that the other kids could eat.

      If cardi b ever knew food insecurity herself or is aware that some of the children at her daughter’s preschool may experience it, or may just not like the lunches they get from home or at the school, I would understand why she packs so much for her daughter’s lunch. If not, then yeah, that is way too much food!

    the Palins walked so the Boeberts could run

  21. Bar Software says:

    Isn’t it too much for a 4 year old?

    • Blithe says:

      Yes. As others have pointed out, the pictures likely show meal prep for multiple days, with multiple meals/snacks for each day. She doesn’t have to eat it all — as many, if not most young kids won’t. She also has enough to share if she wants to from an abundance of good choices.

  22. Doodle says:

    Teachers have food insecurity too. How do we know the food is getting thrown out? Cardi might know something we don’t. Judging without all the information is for dorks.
