Bob had the story yesterday about the province’s nutritional report card. A new report card co-authored by U of A school of Public Health professor Kim Raine gives the province a “D”. Most of this had to do with food offered in and around schools, including nearby convenience stores and fast food outlets.
If you took a lunch to school, I would like you to think back on that experience. Was your mom creative? Maybe you made your own. Was there trading in the lunch room? My mom made some great sandwiches, but after a few years, can there ever be enough variety? I remember when she bought a large mouth thermos and suddenly lunches included soups and stews. I thought I was in heaven. What was your school lunch experience like?
