The other day someone mentioned what kids get for breakfast at school, and it was something like a sugary cereal and chocolate milk? Is that right? Sounds pretty awful, but then again, I have mixed thoughts about feeding kids breakfast at school anyway. Do the kids pay for this junk, or is paid for by the taxpayers? Don’t know. Either way, it’s not a good way to start the day, and no wonder we have so many kids bouncing off the walls in school nowadays.
I’ve had a bad attitude about the whole “free and reduced” lunch program since my daughter was in school ages ago. The girl who was voted “Best Dressed” in their senior class was on a free lunch program and lived in a five-bedroom house with fancy cars in the driveway. It was pretty ridiculous, and I fear that sort of thing happens a lot.
But I digress, this is about breakfast. This morning, I read that McDonald’s new oatmeal breakfast product has more calories than a snicker bar, and ounce for ounce, costs more than a double cheeseburger. Here’s the article. http://tinyurl.com/47e8g4f
