School Lunches… Oh, Dear, What Are We Feeding Our Kids?
Not a news breaking topic, by a long shot, but I just had to do a post about this, after receiving an email from one of my readers.
He'd been at his kids' school and was served THIS for lunch:
What, in this entire picture is a good option?
One thing- an apple!
Enriched, white, floury bread, turkey (likely cage raised and chock full of who knows what hormones), "American" cheese (nice how we have ownership to but one of the (pretend) foods that is the epitome of what NOT to ingest, mayo which likely contains soy and canola oils and some juice- perhaps remotely negligible, but not quite, as it's pure sugar, even if it IS fructose.
Parents, teachers, citizens- whatever you can do, do your part to teach the basics! Small steps count! A complete overhaul of the school lunch system is going to take a LOT of time and effort, but for short term, just adding some veggies, for example, would be a move down the right path.
Oh, I could go on and on!!!
