There are no vegetables on these plates. Tater tots, french fries, and corn don't count. Those are starches. Fruit cocktail doesn't either - it is packed in syrup for crying out loud.
Why can't lunches be more like this?
If school lunches were more balanced and proper nutrition was regarded with an importance parallel to not smoking or doing drugs, then I think we would be seeing a different type of article.
As far as schools sending home "Fat Letters", well, I think it is irresponsible mainly because the method they are using to determine health is so inaccurate. It also makes the child a target for ridicule, whether they are in fact overweight or not.
I think that schools and parents need to work together when it comes to kids. I think parents should push for healthier lunches and more accurate nutrition training in schools. I think the schools should provide healthy lunches and ample time for physical activity during the day.
I think parents need to take responsibility for their children's overall health and well-being and educate themselves on what is healthy for their family. I think the school should support the effort of their school's families.
What do you think? How would you feel if your child came home with a "Fat Letter"?

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.
We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.
We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)
For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.
We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.
We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
