Clip to ScrapBook #27

Our school went to a lunch program this year with fantastic results. The food is healthy and organic. We have very picky eaters (including kids with sensory issues) as well as kids with diabetes, food allergies, the ketogenic diet to treat seizures, and all sorts of other things, and we weren't sure it would work, but it has. Kids regularly choose items from the salad bar, including the kindergarteners. As for getting through the line and managing the stuff, if our kids with motor impairments can do it, I think almost any child probably could. The new system took some getting used to at first, but now our kids are done with lunch in the same amount of time that it used to take in previous years and we don't have a problem getting anyone served on time.

And to the previous poster who made fun of Mrs. Obama's weight - I think we have enough problems in our society with belittling women and making it all about appearances. This is about health and nutrition, not size.
