School dinners

Are very different here.

Admittedly, it’s really difficult to get out of #1 Son what he’s had of a school day – he tends to forget.

But yesterday when I asked, he was adamant it was cereal. I shrugged it off because it was a half day and maybe he was overexcited. But today he told me he had French toast with syrup.

🤭🤔😯😦😧

So I thought I would investigate.

Now, you know what? This isn’t too bad. I mean, there’s yoghurt and cheese. I’m shocked that he apparently ate Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but hey this is good.

Now for today,

This? This I am less impressed with. Again it’s a one off, and most days he has a blasted peanut butter and (grape) jelly sandwich, so as a treat fine.

But it has definitely reminded me that I am in the country where pizza is considered a vegetable. I’m not taking his choice away from him though. He’s eating so much better at school than he was. The agency of choice there is vital.

I’m just going to mumble and grumble about options.

One thought on “School dinners”

  1. Did you ever watch the TV programmes where Jamie Oliver attempted to introduce healthy meals in American schools? They resisted the idea even more vociferously than British schools!
    On Tuesday we saw “Paddington II” at the cinema and we both enjoyed it immensely. I can’t remember the last time I laughed that much at the cinema. It was even better than “Paddington I”. Maybe you should take #1 son?
