Primal Sucess Story
It's bad enough we have to deal with her programed, spineless, evil husband. Why should we be subjected to this gold digger's cock-eyed opinions?
I've been struggling with my 4yo over her breakfast/lunch for pre-K (at a public elementary school) and saw this story last night--it really upset me, the lightbulb went off and I realized why the menu is so effed up, particularly breakfast. I'm sorry, but sending little kids to class hopped up on sugar with no protein is just a BAD IDEA.
Here's today's lunch menu at her school (oddly, one of the better days):
Pork Roast - 3g (3 grams? That's all?)
Zesty lemon broccoli - 2g
Cooked Carrots - 8g
Brown Rice - 37g
Whole grain breadstick - 13g
Every day there's assorted fresh fruit/veggies and of course milk.
I pack her lunches, but she wants to eat what the other kids are eating, and her teachers assured her that what they eat is healthy too. I don't think she *actually* wants the food though, she just wants to fit in. I let her buy cafeteria food one day, and she came home starving because she only drank the milk and juice for breakfast, and all she ate of her lunch was carrot sticks and fruit. ::sigh:: Add this to the fact that she's ahead of the class and getting into trouble because she's bored...we're looking into a different school.
LOL, my school lunches were too, at least some of the time. Today was one of the best days on the menu this month--I'd probably eat that, minus the brown rice. Otherwise there's the usual popcorn chicken, hot dogs, pizza, chicken tenders, "pizza max sticks w/marinara" (??) and occasional classics like chicken casserole, spaghetti, or salisbury steak. What really got me about today's menu is the TINY portion allotted to protein vs. the rice.
Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.
