I just found a blog about a teacher who has decided to eat a school lunch every day she teaches in 2010. Frankly I'm kind of worried about her. Seriously.
My girls have never bought a school lunch. I'm not saying that they ate everything I packed and one didn't take a lunch at all in high school. However, eating pretzels and a tangerine or apple every day has to better than the lunches that are shipped in to the school every day.
If you want to check out this teacher's blog...http://fedupwithschoollunch.blogspot.com/
click on this link. What I think is interesting is that SHE is actually learning more about the food she is eating. At this point after a month and a half, I'd be thinking about what it may be doing to her own health. I wonder if she has gained weight. If she is getting more headaches.
I know she is noticing how food affects the kids she teaches.
