Childhood obesity & unhealthy school lunches as seen on "The View".

Hello fellow health and wellness seekers! Thank you for the encouraging comments. I was watching "The View" this morning and was amazed to learn that :
* One of the contributing factors to the rise of the childhood obesity in America is the lack of proper nutritional guidelines in school lunches.
* The cost of healthy food is too expensive versus the budgets allocated by the school systems.
* Inexpensive processed foods are easier and faster to prepare to meet scheduling demands.
Well, I started thinking about ways to help my own child. Some days, having something healthy can be difficult , however, think about what we did when we were in school.
      Remember the thermos bottle?
If you prepare your own low sodium soups, turkey chili, or stews, just freeze the extra. You may then warm a serving for you or your child and pour into the thermos bottle. The food will stay warm and be just as delicious as when you first served it.
       There are really great sandwich cooler kits available.
I recently read that some of those containers won't keep food at the appropriate temperature. To solve that, I freeze the sandwiches after preparation in addition to the freeze packets that come with the kit.
      How to get around the peanut allergy issue in schools.
Having been on several parent school advisory councils, it's a great idea to use this resource to find out your school policies. There are so many great products now that are just as delicious as peanut butter, like the almond butter or chestnut spreads. I did not think I would like the alternatives, but my child is the one who suggested we try them.
       It sometimes works out well if you let your child believe they can come up with great meal ideas that are healthy and safe to take in their school lunches. Carrots, celery, apples, broccoli bits are just a few items we have used. Even a sandwich made with a whole grain wrap can be a nice alternative. Our goal should be to give them more variety in their meal plans and remove as much processed white sugar, white rice, and white pasta as possible from the menu.
