What's for Lunch - Mon., 11/29

The menu lists lunch as:

White Meat Chicken Nuggets
BBQ Dipping Sauce
Sauteed Zucchini with Garlic
Orange Wedges

 I believe we should all support the school lunch program with our participation, but this lunch concerns me.

These are better chicken nuggets than last year -- but they are still fried, frozen Tyson "quality" chicken nuggets.  They are served with a fresh fruit and a fresh vegetables - huge improvements over last year (see all "additives" labels for more details) but this lunch still trains kids to think they should eat fast food, junk food and kids' meals instead of more nutritious whole foods.

Here are the ingredients for the chicken nuggets so you can decide for yourself:  Chicken, water, salt, and natural flavor. BREADED WITH: Wheat flour, water, wheat starch, white whole wheat flour, salt, yellow corn flour, corn starch, dried onion, dried garlic, dried yeast, brown sugar, extractives of paprika, and spices. Breading set in vegetable oil.

 The BBQ dipping sauce is organic. Zucchini and the orange are fresh.
