I no longer tell my students the days’ lunches are healthy choices. I can’t give healthy that bad a rap. After many years of sometimes eating school lunches, I haven’t been to the cafeteria for months. I’ll give up my 1/2 hour lunch to drive to Taco Bell first — and I’ll eat better if I do. Our cafeteria’s idea of healthy often borders on inedible. In the meantime, the students all stuff bags of Flaming Hot Cheetos and other scary, red, snack foods in their lockers.
Eduhonesty: If it comes down to bags of crunchy, spicy-hot, fried bread or the new school lunches, crunchy red bread seems to be winning. The government needs to get out of the lunch business. This is silly.
