Lea77I think in the rush to judgement (and whining about fat kids and parental responsibility), you guys missed some of the key issues.1. This is the main one to me: the kids are not getting enough PROTEIN. No amount of fruit is going to make up for that. I think one of the examples the teacher gave was 1 or 2 cheese sticks as the sum total of protein in the meal.2.Have you ever met a teenage boy, particularly one involved in sports. They are bottomless pits. They need lots of food because they are growing and expending many calories. The lunches are not adequate. For a teenage girl, sure. A teenage boy? No. 3.An inadequate amount of calories and protein is not ?healthy?. It is also not conducive to learning. Some schools are getting around this, I understand, by providing some sort of snack time in the afternoon because the lunches don?t carry the kids through. I hear you. I was a year-around athlete in High School: football in the fall; basketball in the winter; track and baseball in the spring.I brought my own lunch and spent a few bucks in the cafeteria as well each day.Eating in the cafeteria alone would not cut it unless I bought 3 meals.decath
