There has been a lot in the news lately concerning school lunches. It seems there have been complaints as well as outright boycotts against the newly "nutritious" and "low calorie" meals that are being served in the public schools across our nation. Well, you'll be happy to hear that though we are not public schooled, we still try to maintain a nutritious balance in our lunch system. Never mind the bleached flour and high fructose corn syrup used in the hamburger buns that have been smothered in protein rich peanut butter and berry loaded jam (I mean that's still healthy, right?) The cheese sticks and fruit cups must make up for it at least, cough cough. Okay, to keep the boycotts down, I gave yummy Oreo cookies to all who finished their healthy lunch, though my two year old decided that the delicious cream filling was all that was worth eating! The beverage was vitamin water from Costco....low in calories and filled with, what else? Vitamins of course! So, happy lunch eaters all around today. No boycotts, no health officials on my case, but then again we do homeschool. You know, if parents packed their kids' lunches then nobody could tell the children what they can and can not eat. And since a lot of the complaining students that are also qualified to get free school lunches already get free groceries via food stamps, we could save the government a bit of money...kill two birds with one stone, no more complaints at what's served for lunch and the government saves a bit too! Hmm. Now that's food for thought!

|Lunches all ready for the students|
|Say "Cheese"! (okay, that was cheesy, I know!) Lol|
|Who doesn't love an Oreo?|
|I mean the cream filling is the best part!|
