Reader email: Portion sizes

I am lucky to have amazing readers. I love how you teach me about things. It started out last year when I first started blogging. I didn’t know a thing about school lunch (evidence: I decided to eat it for a year) and, well, thousands of you educated me about the ins and outs of […]

  Why Los Angeles Schoolkids Get Lousy Meals Terrific article dated June 16th. For the record, I am nowhere near LA, but my sister-in-law is and snagged a copy of the paper for me.

Lunch Wrap Up – Weeks of June 20th and June 27th

Let’s see if I can get the formatting right on this post… My son is sick for the third time as many weeks. Three weeks ago it was the flu, ten days ago it was a cold, and now it’s another virus with a fever. The only good thing is that I am not working and I […]
