A look at this week's school lunch

I have noticed some small, baby-step improvements to our elementary school lunches. I'm still packing for the kids daily, but I did send an email to the person in charge of food services thanking her for the small changes. Big changes still need to be made, but I don't expect overnight miracles. I also hope to see more changes in the middle and high school level.

Here is the menu for this week (click to enlarge):

What do you see that is good? What can be improved upon? How does this compare with your kids' school lunch this week? Are you doing anything to change your school lunch? If so, what? I want to help make more changes, but I get overwhelmed with where to even start...I'd love suggestions!

A School Nutrition Association survey has found that school meals nationwide are including more whole grains, vegetarian options, fresh fruit and vegetables, and that schools are reducing the sodium and added sugar in the foods they serve.
