Wednesday 3/17: Macho Nacho

Menu reads as follows: Crisp Tortilla Rounds, Meat & Cheese, Lettuce & Tomato, Fruit. Yay! Chartwells (food service provider) delivered what they said they would:

Doesn't look so bad, right? Actually the only thing the kids really ate were the crisp tortilla rounds. They complained the cheese (yellow stuff- see below) was too salty and the meat (?) was yuck and the salad unappetizing.

Some kids delved into half an orange with the rind still on, but managed only to suck some of the juices out, the rest was thrown away along with styrofaom serving trays, meat, cheese and sorry excuse for lettuce.

I'm not a Nutritionist, but I bet if we start looking at the ingredients and actual nutritional value of these meals, we'll discover that we are short-changing our kids' health in a big way, not to mention the environmental destruction such processed foods have.

    And I am not sure what I would do as an adult with half an orange. I was just imagining trying to get that peel off and it seems that cutting the orange in half makes it harder than keeping it whole. How about orange quarters for the preschoolers???
