I read about that. No common sense there. I would be furious if that were my child. Then again, one more reason why I'm so glad we homeschool.

School lunches don't seem to be a priority.

I am gonna try to get a video recorded on the downlow and post it. I would like to know where i can go to see what is in this food. how many calories, and who provides the food to see if there are political ties. i think someone can make a documentary about it. they remove soda from the school and call it going healthy. anyone really wonder what is going on with this. I believe it is a matter of who is providing the food to the schools. that company is usually chosen by contract and usually has to do with politics. it is not about the heath of the kids folks. Follow the money and see where the intrest lies.
Compared with random public schools around the country I don't think that San Antonio lunches are any better or worse than anywhere else.
The white bread seems to be replaced by healthier whole wheat bread, and I don't see anything wrong with milk, except someone is allergic to it.
I also see that most schools serve some fresh fruit like pear, orange or apple wedges, bananas or grapes ( those are easy to eat). They serve skim milk or 1% chocolate, and offer some juices too.

Would you please let us know what school you had in mind, so we can look at their menu??

I can tell you at the schools I have been at there is an abundance of fruits/veggies and salads. The white bread went away along time ago. There are also plenty of other fruit drinks/juices and various milks.

kind of silly because as we know some parents are more involved than others.

Really?

Our school is a mostly poor, inner city school, but with a small group of heavily involved and more affluent parents. A LOT happens in this school, many programs funded by these parent organizations. These are not replicated at other schools in the district. Unfortunately.

In Illinois the school lunches were really good back in the 1980s. Even had homemade rolls, you could smell the bread baking about 11:30am or so. I never missed a lunch for four years in high school. Here, well, I can hardly wait to have my 10 year old post in here. He won't touch even one school lunch, ever, here in NEISD.

When I was in public school-1950's-1965, lunch cost me 35 cents a day. It was decent but Wednesday was Mexican food day and you better run for the cafeteria because it was a sellout. There was little thrown away on any day. Breakfast was served at home as was supper. But that 35 cents in todays dollars would cost yer kid $10.50 due to inflation and costs from 1964. So if you are paying 2 bucks for yer kid to eat, quit complaining or Moderator cut: see comment fix his lunch. My mom did sometimes and it didn't kill her either. As far as Northside schools serving green tainted bread, Moderator cut: see comment you need to have a major sit down with him or maybe the parent needs to get a grip on reality. Everything is fresh, not months old, yeah, the other half works at NISD and the kids and especially the Moderator cut: see comment parents are being coddled. I for one, as a tax payer, am fed up with those that think the schools are suppose to raise yer kids. You had them, it's yer responsibility, not the schools. The school is there to provide an education, not raise kids or for that matter, feed them like a parent should.

I'm more worried about pizza being classed as a vegetable than kids eating white bread.

NISD has 111 schools. So just because everything is great at the one your spouse works at doesn't mean that it's perfect at all of them. I have seen the green hot dogs myself (they were inside corn breading). I haven't seen the moldy buns but DD has never seen mold on bread at home and came home describing it perfectly. She doesn't have any reason to lie...she wants to buy school lunch every day. Last week she had food poisoning and she was the only one in the family who got it. Six hours after her lunch, she was screaming and crying in the toilet to the point that I thought I'd have to take her to the hospital. She had to stay home the next day and she spent the day on the toilet. She still wants to buy school lunch

When I used to work retail, sometimes we'd get packages of moldy bread fresh off the bread truck. It can happen when the bread is packaged while it's still hot. We used to see moldy, unexpired beef jerky and chocolate with moths hatching from it too. I look at everything really carefully before I eat it, and I've taught my kids to do the same.

I have heard that our school lunches are a lot better than those served in some of the southern states, though.
