Toronto writer Andrea Curtis tells us about the lessons she learned while working on her book, What's for Lunch: How Schoolchildren Eat Around the World.
Many schools and school boards have found success with a variety of lunch scenarios including nutrition breaks, using older students as monitors, paid lunch programs and even classical music!
With nutrition having such an important link to learning, schools are hard pressed to come up with solutions that aren't just piecemeal and keep parents and students from getting fed up.
Your kid is somehow able to fit in an enormous amount of food. Where is your 12-year-old putting all this food?
My husband and I are trying to eat healthier (egg whites instead of whole eggs, whole grains, less white carbs) but we don’t want to overly concern our 12-year-old daughter with watching her weight.
