What's for Lunch - Fri., 9/24

Friday's menu is:

Whole Wheat Grilled Cheese
Baby carrots w/ dip
Petite Banana

The grilled cheese is made with a combination of American and cheddar cheese (the cheddar is a USDA commodity). Julia indicated that over time as the children adjust to the new menu they will transition to cheddar-only sandwiches. The bread is whole wheat as noted. The brand is Nature's Own with no HFCS. We are trying to get the rest of the ingredients, but it appears to be a definite improvement over last year's bread.

The carrots are fresh and the dressing is an organic Ranch dressing made by Chelten. (Although not low fat like last year because it would raise the sodium levels.) Here are the ingredients for the dressing: filtered water, organic soybean oil, organic sour cream (cultured pasteurized organic cream), organic white vinegar, organic buttermilk powder (organic buttermilk, organic skim milk), organic sugar, pasteurized organic frozen whole egg yolks, salt, organic rice oligodextrin, organic ground mustard seed, organic lemon juice concentrate, organic onion powder, organic garlic powder, organic parsley, organic black pepper, xanthan gum.

And finally, fresh fruit - a banana.
