There wasn't a cafeteria in my school. There was a parochial school across the street that we were allowed to use. Most of us either went home for lunch, or brought our own. My kids preferred sacked lunches except on pizza day. They got their meals for breakfast and dinner, and we didn't rely on the schools for nutrition. That was our jobs.

Lunch trays are required to have at least a half-cup of fruits or vegetables, and milk must contain no more than 1 percent fat.
I seem to recall that children need fat in their diets for brain health, which is why babies shouldn't be fed skim milk. I don't see how 8 oz. of whole milk per day is going to harm them.

Perhaps, for Moochelle, this is a subtle form after birth abortion where the brain is aborted instead of the person. :whistle:

I walked home for lunch too.  Five miles, in the snow, uphill both ways. 

That line never worked with my kids after we moved back home.  One grandma lived a block from the school, the other, two blocks. LOL

The joys of a small town, many of the kids still go home every day.  The only catch is not very many walk anymore.

You're correct and low or no fat salad dressing doesn't allow you to absorb vit k.. and low or no fat harms the gallbladder.

Reading your menu it looks like they are trying to constipate all the students so they won't need bathroom breaks.

I went to a private schools with no cafeteria. The first 6 years I walked home for lunch we were 1 blk shy of being a mile so couldn't stay at school for lunch. I loved going home for lunch had friends to walk with so was fun. Then we moved to another state and we were over a mile so I did take sack lunches. In high school we were allowed to go into town to eat at the restaurants. We loved going to Watson's across the street. Public schools were not allowed to just our school since the owners said we acted like adults it was a priviledge not a right so we were careful to not act up. My kids growing up preferred sack lunches most of the time except for Fridays there was pizza and it was good according to them and once  in awhile on days they thought the food sounded edible. I am a great cook so the school had an impossible job of pleasing my children. I was never overweight nor were my children ever overweight and they were very very healthy so never had to worry about what nutrition they were getting since they got all they needed from our home I cooked well balanced meals as my mother had.

Middle school had a cafeteria, and students would take turns working and would get a free meal in return. We also were permitted to eat elsewhere,  and all the food places were within walking distance,  so we ate what we wanted.

Though I went to a public school, we would have macaroni and cheese, or fish on Fridays out of respect. We didn't mind because it was homemade and fresh fish. Good stuff!

I wonder if schools are allowed to serve pork?  I'll bet not.

No pork, and their idea of a serving of meat (lean turkey only, if you can get it) is 1 ounce or less.

I never gained weight until after I had my hysterectomy - until then I barely broke 110 and I'm 5'6"...

What is up with this? Obviously hormones. I always wondered if it was just estrogen taking women that still gained weight and Suzanne Summers and that DOC show on in the afternoons is correct about us needing DHEA or whatever?

I thought the food at school was good, especially the pizza.  We ate plenty of food when we were kids and candy too - BUT - we played from daybreak to dusk non-stop in the summer outside, until our parents had to drag us in for a bath at night.  We walked to school, walked to the corner store after school to buy candy or popsicles and then walked home.  At recess, we ran outside to play - just couldn't run enough!  We were always active and we were all skinny.

So true!  We were ALWAYS moving...biking, swimming.. building snow forts.  It was great fun and healthy too!

I take DHEA.  My dogs are female, never gained any weight until I had then spayed.   It's the lack of ovaries.

That is a big part of it, I also suspect the hormones used to make chickens, cows, pigs grow faster are involved, the hormones are absorbed in the fat cells and we ingest it when we eat the meat.

I think kids can't be kids nowadays.. Ever since the movie Adam, there has been this rush to overprotect the kids.

Mueller is a Republican

Mueller was appointed by Republicans

Mueller doesn't determine if someone is guilty, The Judge and Jury do!

Did they have the same company who wrote the Obamacare website do the audit?  Got to spend that taxpayer money somehow.
