What they got: Crisp tortilla rounds, fake meat and cheese, brown rice, lettuce & tomato, fruit cocktail, juice and lowfat milk.
A lot of different components were offered to the kids today....maybe too many. Not sure the kids really need juice AND a fruit cocktail AND milk.
Of course the thing that bothers me is the Cheez Whiz and the commodity beef. In fact the beef infuriates more than I can even express especially in light of the recent news.
Here are some of the headlines:
Government Report Finds Dangerous Residues in Meat- Source: Alternet.org
This is totally unacceptable. Why are parents allowing this to happen? Why are our schools not putting their foot down and saying 'NO! We will NOT feed this to our kids' Somehow feeding our kids veterinary drugs, pesticides and heavy metals had become okay.
The activist in me wants to do something radical, like break into the kitchens and destroy all the meat...or I'd like to walk into the kitchens and dump out all the meat products being served on the floor in front of the kids, teachers, cooks and lunch ladies! Yes, drastic! Seems to me drastic times call for drastic measures. When will our government step up and put a stop to this farce of an FDA??
Where do we go from here??
