our school went through this major "wellness policy" makeover where basically everything now has to be healthy. that means no fries, smaller bagels, cookies, etc., only baked chips and other healthy snacks, no ice cream, no soda, teacher's can't give out candy, no selling junk food for fundraisers, etc. as you might imagine, it pissed a lot of people off. i can't eat school food anymore because of my celiac disease, but I didn't think it was that bad. We have four lines:
bar line- things like baked potato bar, nacho bar, they also sell chicken patties, hot dogs, etc. your typical school food, but made a little better for you. once in a while they have an AMAZING salad bar once in a while but not very often
stiry fry- this used to be my favorite. it was chicken, meatballs, shrimp, or beef with stir fry veggies over rice in one of several chinese sauces
pizza/pasta- pretty self explanatory. ravioli, manicotti, calzones, pizza, etc.
deli- most meats on most types of bread- but no white, and the rolls are majorly downsized
you can also get premade salads but they're pretty much just iceberg lettuce and whitish tomatoes. for snacks they have baked chips, pretzels, chex mix, granola bars, fruit juice, small soft pretzels, bagels, cookies, fruit, things like that. all the milk is lowfat or skim.
i'm not sure if its asian food or not..
fried ice-cream is make by putting ice-cream into the oil to fried..the outer layer will be hot while the inner layer is still cold..its delicious but has lots of calories..
now that i remember..we also had fruit juice and ABC at school..
I had some on my birthday last year...it was yummy!
we had choices at my school there was like the hot lunch line that had something different every day like pizza, soup, tacos, etc and you got your choice of fruit or veggies
then theres the express lane that was pretty much all junk food and snacks
we had another lane to but i dont think it had a name lol but it was healthy foods lke salads, yogurt boxes (they have like yogurt,bagels,fruit in them)
yuck. i've only had a bite of it, and i was sick for the rest of the day. and my tongue started to swell.
of course i am allergic to peanuts, and i believe they fry it in peanut oil, so that was probably the reason. but still...
Yeah...I used to have tater tots and some cookies everyday. Geez I wonder how bad my calories were back then, hahaha.
The one good thing about my school, at least for calorie counters, is that all the snacks and drinks are healthy. The most sugary drinks our school serve are snapple and Vitamin water, but they serve plenty of water and flavored water. All the snacks in the vending machines are also less than 6g of fat...so it's not THAT bad when I'm stuck after school without anything to eat.
My school's food is trifling. I never eat it. It barely even looks appetizing.
Well, I do eat the apples that my friends give me from their plate everyday. I guess they don't like the healthy part of their otherwise fatty meal.
this forum is so old...but i have to add...
they have some healthy stuff at the snack ar like fruit and yogurt...and in the lunch line they offer things such as salads (fruit and green)
but they also offer french fries, and you can buy them everyday...they also serve crap at the snack ber, like chips, cookies, crackers, muffins ect.
this is what my friend had today:
-2oz bag tostitos
-double chocolate cookie
-ice cream (they have low-fat soft serve called avasoft...its good and i have it on occasion)
my other friend, who bought from the lunch line, had:
-chocolate chip cookie
And yesterday, i saw a girl buy:
-4 oz muffin
-cookie (2 oz)
-2oz bag tostitos
if she ate this all, it would total up to about 1170 calories just for lunch!
I am amazed at what some people eat...as for me, today I had GoLean cereal with 2% milk, and an apple. It really kept me full until after school! I can't imagine eating what other kids eat!
we get pizza, cheese and hambergers, tator tots, fries, philly cheese steak, parmesan hero, horserad ish sandwich, cookies, cappachinos, coffie, air heads....JUST JUNK
thats why i dont eat it....only the people that can eat the world and not gain a pound eat it
everyday they serve:
Pizza, burgers, fries (with no salt, gross!) , sandwiches, cookies, chips, milk (and stuff), chicken patties
corn dogs, chinese, soup, foot long hot dogs, curly fries, salad
they only serve one type of fruit a day. its either a tiny apple or a tiny orange. how pathetic, right??
i usually get a sandwich, chocolate milk, and whatever fruit they have that day.
