Of Lunch and Youth
This post over at Marie's place reminds me of how unhealthy I think school lunch menus are every time I see one. Then, as a father of several, I remind myself how hard it it is to get kids to eat sometimes and how you're just glad when they eat something that halfway resembles a meal. I also remember in grade school my mother packing a sandwich and dessert in a brown paper bag for me everyday. At lunchtime, I would usually discard the sandwich and eat the dessert. In high school, I pretty much skipped lunch altogether, save maybe a milk and a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. So who am I to comment.
