lunch program website.
The french fries (although baked, not fried) have empty calories as far as I'm concerned. The fruit cocktail, although it is actually fruit, seems to be sweetened along with the chocolate milk. Maybe kids these days crave sugar so much that they only eat food if it's sweetened.....which is more of a reflection on society than the school system.
The child that owned this lunch ate everything but the corn dog. I tried cutting it up for her, but tears welled up. (She was nonverbal--one of my extra special kidos.) Maybe she didn't like a slightly burnt corndog? I couldn't tell.
What do you think about this lunch for your kids?
