National School Breakfast Week

 This week (March 8-12) is National School Breakfast Week, even says so on the school menu calendar. Sounds like a great time to educate the kids on how important breakfast is and how to make good nutritional choices, right?

Let's take a look at Grayson's school's breakfast menu for the week:
  • Pancakes w/blueberries (I'm assuming these aren't whole wheat)
  • Steak biscuit (fried?)
  • Scrambled egg, sausage, toast 
  • Manager's Choice (???)
  • Chicken biscuit (fried?)
Where's the fruit? Where's the whole grains? How about a yogurt, or some high fiber cereal? Healthy breakfast is easy and affordable. Here's what the week should have looked like, so why did our school system drop the ball?

Time to write a letter!
