Posting photos of school lunch, could it improve quality?

Posted by on Oct 18, 2012 in Blog Posts | 3 comments

I feel good about my child eating at school, and I know how lucky I am. Here are more pics of lunches from M’s school, which are posted daily on Facebook. I think if schools had to post photos of their lunches, or if the administrators had to eat school lunch once a week with the kids, things might improve more quickly.  And yes, there really is that much cut up fresh fruit at a public school. I honestly don’t know how they do it on their budget…

Then compare with these photos from Fed Up With Lunch.

How it there that much difference in quality and care, ostensibly on the same budget?

What do you think… Make schools post a daily photo? Require school administrators and teachers to eat lunch with the kids in the cafeteria once a week? (Note, to sit with the kids and enjoy the food, not to police and pressure them to eat more “healthy” choices…)

 

More lunch photos…

    Wow, all of these look delicious! I love how fresh everything looks and how vibrant the colors of the fruits and vegetables are. The tray looks like it was put together with care and attention. I would eat any of these without hesitation.
