What's for Lunch - Wed., 12/3

Sorry I'm late - I've been waiting to see this posted online:

Homemade Challah French
Toast w/Orange Rounds
Applegate Turkey Bacon
Cucumber Sticks
Petite Banana

I have some concerns about this one.  At Sea Cliff, the french toast last month was served with a large portion of syrup. Clearly, the school lunch program cannot afford really maple syrup and pretty much all artificial syrups are made with high fructose corn syrup - which we have talked about extensively here.  Our school has made great strides in getting HFCS out of a lot of foods but it is in this one.

The turkey bacon is by Applegate. It is nitrate-free. Here are the ingredients: Turkey (Turkey Used Never Administered Antibiotics, Growth Promotants or Animal By-products), Water, Sea Salt, Maple Sugar, Celery Juice, Onion Powder, Spices, Lactic Acid Starter Culture (not From Milk.)

Plus fresh fruits and a vegetable.
