What's for Lunch - Mon., 3/21

White Meat Chicken Nuggets
BBQ Dipping Sauce
Herb & Garlic Potato Wedges
Cucumber Rounds
Fresh Fruit

These are better chicken nuggets than last year -- but they are still fried, frozen Tyson "quality" chicken nuggets.  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 sauce, however, is organic. The kids will be given 1 tablespoon.

We add herbs and garlic to frozen commodity potato wedges. We will also have fresh cucumber and  fresh fruit depending on what is available.

Soup is available every day - on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays,  it is homemade Chicken Noodle with Vegetables.  As an alternate entree, you can get a 1/2 wrap and the soup.  Wraps have romaine lettuce and a white flour tortilla.  On Mondays and Wednesdays, the wrap is Boarshead Turkey.

The special entree for March is Abraham Lincoln's Fruit Plate -- carried over from February by popular demand. It includes:  APPLES, ORANGES, GRAPES & FRESH STRAWBERRIES
served with 100% Whole Wheat Carr’s Crackers & Mozzarella Strips plus your choice of sides.
