Upgraded: School Lunches


Has anyone else noticed through the year changes made in the kids cafeteria food? The other day my sister said they've stopped having pizza day at school a year ago and now they've stopped serving cheese fries. Even 2% milk will no longer be an option. We can thank First Lady Michelle Obama for making the biggest changes to school food criteria with the USDA in fifteen years! Through the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, kids won't have any other choice but to eat healthy. Of course, healthy eating has to take place at home too. Kids can still bring their own unhealthy lunches to school.

Having 3 of my kids in school, I have heard more than my share of opinions about the school lunch revisions! LOL They gripe about it, and say that now not only do they get smaller portions and no "happy mediums" (pizza, LOL). But of course, 'normal' portions to my kids are what would be 4-5 adult portions! :-D ~Thanks so much for sharing!
