I found a rather awesome blog today. I’d recommend it to teachers, parents, students, educational administrators… anyone who’s involved with kids.
Regarding school lunches, I remember that in middle school and high school I NEVER had the school’s lunch. I’d always pack my own. In elementary school, I would only buy the school’s lunch when they had either hot dogs (the red Carolina Packers brand – totally unhealthy but I love them) or spaghetti. Our lunch ladies actually cooked in my elementary schools. They didn’t just pop a bunch of cellophane-wrapped boxes in an oven and heat them up. I know that if that had been the case, I wouldn’t have been eating the school’s lunch at all.
I think if I ever have kids, I’ll probably end up packing their lunch, although I wouldn’t say no to a school lunch about every month or so. Everything in moderation.
So how was your school lunch experience?
