Changing my name

I’m changing the project’s name to “Fed up with lunch: the school lunch project.” It aligns directly with my twitter account and email address.

    Does this mean the blog's URL will change too or just the name of the project?

    Love it! I love seeing someone take this on…my parents made my lunch every day because they didn't want me eating the "food: the school offered. When my son starts school, you can bet I'll be packing his lunch as well!

    The URL is the same, just the actual title of the project on the banner!

    Mrs. Q, what exactly is your project?

    Hello! I am also a teacher and fed up with school lunches. My school is a Title I school so we also serve breakfast. This often includes poptarts or a 420 calorie muffin, juice (which says on the label contains no fruit juice), and chocolate milk. I am concerned because as a Special Education teacher, I have heard from many parents of autistic, FAS, or ADHD/ADD kids that their diet can have a major impact on their behavior. For example, glutton negatively impacts a student with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome making him hyper and unfocused according to his foster parent who swears by a glutton-free diet. I've had diabetic children who want to eat the sugary snacks and lunches everyone else is eating and having severe insulin reactions as a result. My question to you is Have you noticed any impact between lunches and classroom behaviors? Have you read or do you know of any studies that show a correlation between diet and children's behavior. I know most of my students after lunch complain a lot about a stomach ache and it really is difficult for them to focus on learning with a gassy tummy. Plus have you ever tried to contain a room of giggly pre-teens after someone passes gas? Honestly, they all lose focus!!!
