Wednesday 4/21: Pizza Sticks

The menu reads as follows: Pizza sticks w/sauce, Green beans, Apple Sauce

What they got: Bread sticks filled with cheese, sauce, canned green beans and apple sauce

So far this week they have had one fresh vegetable one fruit for offered and lunch. I got really excited yesterday with the broccoli and cauliflower medley but today I am not so excited anymore but I guess we need to take baby steps! Change takes time.

I'm still trying to determine what is healthy and nutritious on this plate and how this encourages the kids to eat fresh fruit and vegetables and whole grains as stated by the NJ School Nutrition/Wellness Policy

I'll just leave it at that.


  1. ooh, what is the point of this meal. It looks as if they just threw together what they could find.

  2. The sad part is that it was actually planned that way...the kids got what was promised on the menu. what the kids ate...well some white bread.
