Blog Recommendation: Fed Up With Lunch

One of the most engaging blogs I've been following is called Fed Up With Lunch. It's a blog from the point-of-view of a parent who has decided to eat school lunches everyday throughout 2010.

Here's a bit of explanation from the blog's FAQ page:
I'm eating school lunch just like the kids every day in 2010 to raise awareness about what students eat every day. My hope is that the US becomes more reflective about how the food children eat affects their well-being and success in school. I certainly do not speak for all school lunch programs, but from the comments I have been receiving, what I eat is fairly typical of what most students eat in our country.
In addition to being informative, Fed Up With Lunch is way funny at times and includes a -- healthy -- array of guest voices, as well.

Check it out and see what's on the menu.


  1. I thought it was interesting to see this blog.
    Being a teacher myself has always wondered why they feed pizza to the students once a week. When I was young I thought the food was delicious, now I hardly buy food at the cafteria. The more power to you as a mother to take the time and will power to eat what our students are fed everyday. I am a mother of 2 and fixed their lunch on daily basis till they graduated.

  2. What kids eat at school is such a sensitive topic. Unhealthy food is a cause of unhealthy consequences but the government prefers to downplay the problem and help the doctors get rich. I was at the beach recently and I cannot express the horror I felt seeing so many obese kids. In fact I'm afraid that very soon skinny kids will be a minority.
