Just two days ago I was substituting for a high school class and they had some down time at the end. I let them watch a video of American kids trying school lunches from around the world. The video is quite entertaining as the kids have some great reactions to new foods. However, I wasn’t showing it for just that! I wanted to kids to see that others kids’ lunches are compromised of more “real food” than ours.
They eat meat that is not processed into nugget form, they have vegetables that children are eating, and they do not have packaged snacks to go along with their lunches.
Let’s just admit defeat on this one and give the lunch program award to anyone but us!
I have this fear of sending my child to school and letting her eat the food. I also have a fear of school parties laden with candy in every color and soda in every flavor. As a mom who is health conscious, I have a hard time letting go of this one. There must be something else we can celebrate with rather than sugar filled, dyed, processed crappy food like items.
I mean if it was up to me kids would celebrate with a WOD and fill up on water, veggies, fruit, and maybe even some homemade no refined sugar banana bread. Sounds fun right?!
What do you do about your child and school lunches and/or parties?!
I am strong. I am capable. I am powerful. I am beautiful.
