Good Day! - posted on 07/26/2010 ( 11 moms have responded )
This was discussed briefly in the SAHM VS Working Mom thread. Here is what I posted:
I taught in the top school district in my state. They are number one in academics and rank near the top in athletics. The buildings are beautiful. The teachers are top rated and there is a very low turn over rate. There is no lack of supplies and technology.
So I don't understand why they continue to contract out the cheapest school food provider. IT"S CRAP! I had morning cafeteria duty. I watched what the kids were served every morning for breakfast. Cinnamon roles, breakfast pizza, pancakes and syrup...crap crap crap. I considered making a chart based on what was served for breakfast and the behavior of the kids throughout the day. I seriously noticed more hyperactivity on cinnamon role day.
What is your opinion on school lunch programs? What are the rules and regulations in your school/state/country. I live in the southern United States. The only rules I know of is that the school must serve something from each food group. Fries are considered a vegetable.
