School Lunch Project

I just found this blog via twitter, and it’s definitely a blog of interest. It’s a teacher who plans to eat school lunches every school day in 2010. She makes a note of what she ate that day and adds a photo in her daily blog posts as a part of her ‘School Lunch Project’.

She says:

It’s very challenging to teach students when they are eating school lunches that don’t give them the nutrition they need and deserve. Oftentimes what is served barely passes muster as something edible. And after a meal high in sugar and fat and low in fiber, they then must pay attention in a classroom.

From what I can remember from when we were in school, most of the food was junk. Fries and pizza were what was considered to be a ‘lunch meal’ daily for most students. Worse, when students got tired of that – they resorted to cookies instead to change up the pace.

It’s no wonder students have a hard time concentrating. I like this teacher’s idea… what a creative way to get a sense of what’s going on.

P.S. Don’t forget to leave me a comment below on your thoughts! As always, I’d love to hear from you.
