Visualizing An Alternative School Lunch

school-lunch21School lunch is THE hot topic these days.  From Mrs. Q’s latest cafeteria atrocity to Jaime Oliver’s Food Revolution, millions of Americans have come to the realization that children across the country are being fed the equivalent of nutritionally void scraps.

While many clearly understand that a lunch tray piled with microwaved pizza, fruit in heavy syrup, chocolate milk, and pretzels is a far cry from a nutritious meal, they have a hard time imagining a suitable — and realistic — alternative.

These charts demonstrate that healthier school lunches that fit within United States Department of Agriculture guidelines — a “must” for any school that participates in the National School Lunch Program — are by no means a pipedream.

You can even create a tasty school lunch without — are you ready for it? — added sugar!  Imagine that…

    I think it’s really important for schools to provide healthy school lunches. Thankfully as an adult I can cook for myself and maintain good health and wellbeing, but when I was in public schools (K-12) I was obese. A slice (or two) of pizza for breakfast, cheeseburgers and fries for lunch, with ice cream for dessert does not make kids healthy. I find it hard to believe that parents are not more upset about what their children are eating.

    I love Jamie Oliver’s show! Can’t wait to see the premier!
