What's in Thursday's Lunch - 6/10

On Thursday, you can choose:

Sliders or Veggie Burger
Bagel with butter, American or cream cheese
Sliced Turkey Sandwich / Salad
Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Pickle Chips
Golden Corn Niblets
Chilled Peaches

These used to be described as "all beef" sliders - but they are not. Buns are not whole wheat - 279 mg of sodium and they do contain high fructose corn syrup. The Beef Patties are a processed food made from USDA commodity beef. Here are the ingredients: Beef, water, textured vegetable protein (soy, flour, zinc oxide, niacinamide, ferrous sulfate, copper gluconate, vitamin A palmitate, calcium pantothenate, thiamin mononitrate (B1), pyridoxine hydrochloride (B6), riboflavin (B2), cyanocobalamin (B12))

If your kid hasn't yet, today might be a good day to try a Veggie Burger. These are Dr. Praeger's and they contain: carrots, onions, string beans, zucchini, oat bran, peas, spinach, expeller pressed canola oil, broccoli, textured soy flour, corn, oat fiber, red pepper, arrowroot corn meal, corn starch, garlic, salt, black pepper, all natural vegetable gum.

Ok, so pickle chips aren't much of a side. Corn is quite starchy so we don't have a strong vegetable choice here and nothing raw or even fresh. The icing on the cake so to speak is that the corn does have both added salt and sugar. Plus then we have sugar peaches with 16g of sugar from the added sugar and corn syrup.

  1. There is a lot of research about soy and hormones. I also have concerns about non organic soy which is almost always genetically modified.
