So interesting, ans a good reason to pack a healthy lunch for your child!
Unfortunately, school lunch has become a political issue. Which means that instead of actually trying to figure out how to provide our children with healthy food we are busy yelling at each other about a “Nanny State.”
So sad. Because it is our own children who are the victims of this nonsense.
No matter what your political party, if any, wouldn’t you prefer that your children eat better than pizza, fries, hot dogs, pasta and fried everything?
No, no, for all of you who may be yelling at me right now. I did NOT say your kids should never eat a candy bar or a bag of chips. I am merely suggesting that if we feed the kids right maybe they will grow up healthier.
They will feel better, look better and won’t be a burden on the health care system.
Isn’t that a worthy goal?
When I was a kid, I went home for lunch. The kids who stayed in school had a half American cheese sandwich plus a bowl of soup. I remember feeling sorry for them because they weren’t getting the good stuff my mother had waiting. By the time I got to high school, school lunch offerings were things like chow mein (tasted like La Choy canned) and spaghetti (tasted like Franco-American canned). Today it’s fries, fried, processed, carbs and more fries.
We can do better, can’t we?
