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"?
