Conscious parenting is about caring for the whole child: body, mind and spirit. Some days, the body needs to come first. Do you know what your child is eating for lunch today?
Okay, I know I'm way behind in my posts and I have lots of things I intend to write about, but here it is: School lunches are scary.
If, indeed, you are what you eat, my kids are pepperoni pizza. Or possibly tater tots.
I've been waffling for about two years now, not sure how I wanted to approach our local school district; reluctant to get drafted for another committee, but consistently horrified by what I see on the lunch menu -- when I am brave enough to look.
For example, the menu for next week includes cheese pizza on Monday, nachos with cheese and "cheesy refried beans" on Tuesday, grilled cheese sandwiches on Wednesday and a cheeseburger on Thursday.
What's up with all the cheese? When did nachos become a meal?
