i think this is nice to know because sometimes the school lunches aren't the best for you so making your kids lunches from home could be more healthier.

Okay, so school luch is not the best food in the world. In fact, it may register as some of the worst. I have had to stand at the salad bar of countless minutes to "possibly" recieve a salad, and I often do not feel very full afterward. So, it makes a good deal of sense that I would be attracketed to idea of bringing a healthy AND filling lunch. I love the selection that this list offers.

Anna Asp's curator insight, April 11, 2013 6:07 AM

Another article with recipes of healthy meals. This time, it is focused on lunches that are easy to bring to school or work - prefect for me! There are several salads with tomatoes - the easy cottege cheese salad with Za'atar sounds interesting, as well as the tomato, olive and fresh mozarella sallad with basil vinaigrette - and different pitas and wraps. Seven layer tostadas and the spicy shredded chicken lettuce wraps with avocado salsa sounds delicious, doesn't it? Then there are sallads with grain or quinoa, salads with chicken (like the one with lime, avocado and cilantro - yum!), and pasta salads (man, I am getting hungry just reading these.) Other recipes included shrimp and hummus (but it is not really politically correct to eat giant shrimps because of the extremely bad impact they have on the environment,) roasted asparagus wrapped in ham and slow roasted tomato hummus. This article is one that I am definately coming back to!

Snacks: USDA's Solution to Healthy School Lunch Protests

Snacks: USDA's Solution to Healthy School Lunch Protests | Healthy School Lunch | Scoop.it
Students claim new healthy lunch regulations are making them go hungry.

 

According to Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, the solution to the growing grumbling over re-vamped school lunch menus boils down to a good old fashioned snack.

 

School lunch trays are a bit lighter this year after Congress-approved calorie limits on school lunches went into effect in August. The new regulations, which were championed by First Lady Michelle Obama as part of her "Let's Move" campaign to fight childhood obesity, have inspired protests and even a video parody from students who claim the reduced lunches are making them go hungry.

 

"It's not surprising that some youngsters will in the middle of the day be hungry," Vilsack told ABC News, responding to the controversy. "I remember my two boys when they came back from school they were always hungry, we always had snacks prepared for them."

 

Vilsack said the Obama Administration is working with school districts to create snack programs and encouraging parents to pack extra food for their active students to munch on before football practice or band rehearsal.

 

LBN:

So now schools or parents have to provide snacks instead of let kids eat more during their lunch break? That sounds like it defeats the purpose of limiting their calorie intake at lunch time....schools should just let the kids eat what they want at lunch off the menu, and let them swap fruits or other foods if they don't want to finish something, this way less food will go to waste and those kids that are hungry will get enough food at lunchtime.

 

Of course if they stay after school for athletics or other activities they should probably bring a snack to keep them energized during the exta curricular time.

I know our students complain about being hungry all the time; and, they snack all day/afternoon to compensate for the lower calorie meals at lunch.
