What's in Wednesday's Lunch - 6/16

Your choices are:

Macaroni and Cheese
Bagel w/ Butter, American or Cream Cheese
Ham and Cheese Sandwich
Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

French Bread
Apricot Cups

The Mac n Cheese is made with whole grain noodles, USDA cheese and olive oil instead of butter -- the result of recent improvements. The garden salad does have fresh vegetables and the bread is whole grain (although with the noodles it's doubling the starch.)

If you're interested in the Ham and Cheese Sandwich which we haven't discussed in a couple of weeks, they use commodity ham and American cheese. The ham has 600 mg of salt, sodium phosphate, sodium erythorbate, and sodium nitrate.

For the apricots, we have a USDA fact sheet rather than a label. It says they are frozen and packed in syrup with 30g of carbohydrates.
