Vowing to eat the school lunch her students get in 2010, Mrs. Q is lunch blogging as Fed Up.
Today’s menu: Pepperoni pizza, milk, baby carrots, multi-grain apple mini-crisps, fruit cup.
Our first repeat meal! I strongly dislike the pizza so for me this one was a rough. I got excited by the “mini-crisps” because I thought they might be dehydrated apple slices, but unfortunately they were bland, rice cake-like disks.
I liked the baby carrots, but I asked one of my students if he ate them and he told me, “No.”
The fruit cup was partially frozen AGAIN. I did attempt to eat it, but I didn’t even eat half of it.
On the other hand, the Rib-a-cue tastes a lot better than it looks, she reports.

In elementary school, we walked home for lunch. I ate the school lunch in junior high school. It was just as bad. I wondered why they had to serve a hot lunch since I usually ate a sandwich for lunch at home. In high school, the cafeteria was so noisy, crowded and dirty that I brought a bag lunch and ate it in a student lounge or (secretly) in the social studies library. When I was too lazy to make lunch, I ate two bags of M&M’s in the lounge, which inevitably led to a hunger headache. I’d make myself soup when I got home.
Update: When recess comes before lunch, students eat more and return to class calmer, some schools say.
