Feed up With Lunch

I found this on the net the other day and thought it was pretty interesting.

It is about a women Mrs Q who one day forgets to take her lunch to school she works at and decides why not buy what the students eat each day at school, what she got was a Bagel Dog, as she says

"It was this massive amount of dough covering a hot dog, plus tater
tots and a fruit cup. And I thought, ‘This is it?’

When she looked at some of her students, most of whom rely on government-subsidised free lunches at school. The bagel dog that turned her stomach would be, for many the best meal of
their day.

She decided to write about the lunches on her blog Feed up With Lunch and take photographs of some of the lunches so people could see what sort of meals children where eating and maybe why there was a obesity problem in the area.

Pizza Pasta Salisbury steak

Some other meals included :
Chicken parmigna , garlic bread, broccoli, apple

Meatballs, broccoli, mixed fruit cup, whole wheat hot dog buns

Cheese sandwich, tater tots, apple, pretzels, milk

Some of these foods may not seem bad, but when you read the write up about them, then its a different matter
