Day 20: Meatball sub

Today’s menu: meatballs in sauce, wheat hot dog bun, peas, mixed fruit cup, milk

A staff member remarked, “the meatballs are good!” when she saw me with my lunch. I was just relieved that it wasn’t a hot dog: I saw the buns from a far and just jumped to that conclusion.

    Wow – I want to cry when I hear about what kids are getting served! Good luck with your project to create awareness about this issue!

    I noticed that all the buns served at your school are whole wheat. That seems like some little lame token nod to people concerned with nutrition, but I guess it's better than nothing.

    mmmmmmm…..lots of squishy food at your school. The pics always kind of remind me of nursing home food, you know lots of stuff that never requires much chewing.

    Thanks for starting this. We have a Pre-K student and we are in the middle of Kindergarden round up. This is where we (as parents) interview local public schools to select out top 5 picks and see which school our kids will attend. This is nice because we're not stuck with one option. Anyway, the lunches are of concern for us as well. I was wondering if you're able to put a link to Facebook. I'd like to put this blog on my wall to get all our parent friends reading as well.

    It's probably a good thing the food is squishy since they only get sporks as utensils. I think this is so the kids can't going on murdering rampages with the plastic knives.

    I don't remember whole wheat bread from my public-school days. I never bought school lunches though.

    It is really strange to me that everything comes in its own paper bowl – this was certainly not the case at my school. In elementary and middle school, the cafeteria used reusable plastic trays with individual dividers for each food item. In high school, the trays were styrofoam, still with the dividers.

    I enjoy your blog – keep up the good work.

    No wonder our kids hate school lunches and they are fat. Look at all the starches on top on starches and sugar that is in every meal!!!! Come on Pizza, corn, and a fruit cup!(all straches and sugars) People wonder why our children are fat hummmmmm….. Hello!!! Wake up and look at the nutritional value of this crap! And what happened to home cook meals in the caferteria? Why even bother to have a caferteria when all the kids need is a microwave to make this food. Sadly, our children see this and this is why most of them eat out all of the time when they get older because they do not get any homecooked meals and a homecooked meal to them is McDonalds. Although, after seeing these menus and the pictures at least McDonalds does have some foods that are healthy!!
