What's for Lunch - Thurs., 9/8

For the first day of school lunch, we're having:

French Bread Pizza
Market Fresh Veggies
Fresh Apple

These pizzas are not frozen but instead made in-house. For the pizza, the sauce is a Red Pack vitamin enhanced tomato sauce. The sodium at 140mg is much lower than we used two years ago.  Here are the ingredients: Tomato Concentrate (Water, Tomato Paste), Sugar, Soybean Oil, Potassium Chloride, Onion Powder, Salt, Citric Acid, Spice, Garlic Powder, Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid), Black Pepper, Vitamin E (DL-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate), Natural Flavor, Vitamin A (Retinol Palmitate).  The cheese is a USDA commodity part skim mozzarella.  Ingredients are cultured pasteurized milk, salt, enzymes. The sodium is 240mg/oz - I think we use 2 ounces.   It is made on white-flour bread.

The sides include a fresh apple and the best vegetables they can get this week.

Kindergarten parents: the school asks that you send lunch in with your kindergartner until Sept 19th. The process of negotiating the lunch line can be a little much at first.
