What's in Monday's Lunch - 6/14

Mondays are Pizza Day

Cheese Pizza Slice
Bagel with butter, American or cream cheese
Tuna Salad Plate/Sandwich
Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Tossed Vegetable Salad
Sliced Apples w/ Cinnamon

We give some of our USDA commodity mozzarella cheese to Nardone Bros Baking in this instance and they turn it into a frozen pizza that we reheat at the school. The label indicates 540mg of sodium and 12g of fat. The list of ingredients is not that extensive -- if this is the same cheese pizza as earlier in the year - and can be seen at No whole grain in the crust.

We haven't reviewed the PB&J in more than a week so here's a re-cap: The peanut butter is another free commodity - the ingredients are peanuts, dextrose, hydrogenated vegetable oil and/or partially hydrogenated palm oil, salt, and molasses. The jelly is "grape" with this ingredient listing: corn syrup (1st ingredient), grape juice (water and grape juice concentrate), fruit pectin, citric acid and sodium citrate.

I'll say it again - tossed vegetable salad is a source of raw, fresh vegetables which is good. Sliced apples with cinnamon gets you a fresh, raw fruit! Raisins are Sunmaid from California (I mention this because imported grapes are more likely to have higher levels of pesticides.)


PS - Let us know what your kids think of the pizza today!
