    Wow! There's certainly an array of food here (although pizza appears to be the hands-down most popular to serve). Growing up, I always brought a bagged lunch from home - buying lunch at school seemed like a dream to me, something only the 'rich' kids could do.

    These are all great entries and write-ups!

    Oh boy, yet something else we are not supposed to use. Thank you for informing us about this. I just wonder if there is anything on this earth that is safe anymore. It seems like there is always something toxic, doesn't it?

    Any casino online that does not offer the casino games that this one does is not worth your time or your gambling dollars.

    Great article! I agree that for the most part, those working in school lunchrooms are soldiers on the front line. They have it coming at them from every direction. It seems we need to find a way to be supportive but affect change!

    awesome report. but these always make me sad for the whole system, the kids who are being reared on processed food and taught, by repitition, to enjoy fake food over real food, and the school workers who try as they might have so little control over helping kids eat healthier. its kinda lose-lose. but really, i have tasted crappy processed hot dogs and the grassfed ones and dont understand what is not to like about the better quality ones; they are still greasy and salty and meaty, all things a hot dog should be, plus im sure they are served with a boatload of hfcs-laden ketchup. weird.

    i find it very concerning that schools and parents have somehow decided that children, whom we are entrusted to care for, should be making the decisions on what to eat based on what they prefer taste-wise. yes, white bread that is "lighter" may taste "better", but its simply because it really turns into sugar much more quickly then brown whole grain bread, and it may be a taste the kids are used to at home. just because a child prefers sweets to protiens or healthy fats or veggies, doesnt mean we should indulge this preference. since when are young children the driving force behind nutritional decision making? its just awful foir the kids health and generally it seems people arent caring...

    First, great observations and acknowledgment that the school lunch ladies are trying to do their job w/ the support and resources they have. I doubt they want to serve bad fake food. Secondly, the SPORK bring back memories-funny! Thirdly, I want to strongly echol Point 5. It really does take a village. Not all children are as fortunate to have a great mom like you pack their lunch and come eat with them. Nor do all families have access to education sources such as SGT to help them understand food. Point 5 is a good reminder to keep those who live at poverty level and/or work 3 jobs to support their families in mind as we continue to advocate for healthier school lunches.
