Fresh Ideas on School Lunches

Even though the school year is only a few weeks old, many parents (like me) have already fallen into the school lunch doldrums. Even when they are lucky enough to have a child willing to try new things, they’re just at a loss for what to serve that’s nutritious, portable, and able to withstand the typical child’s backpack until lunchtime.

Well, fret no more because my friend (who happens to be a super-talented chef) has some ideas for you. Chef Danielle is the creator of www.cookingclarified.com and she recently put together a FREE, downloadable e-book called Lessons in Lunch that will give you some fresh, multicultural ideas to answer the question: what’s for lunch?

You may also be interested in my cameo appearance in the e-book as the author of an article on school lunches around the world.

Happy Reading! (And Eating!)

In the Lunch Room

I read this very interesting article today in the Washington Post about a project called Mix It Up, which promotes racial integration through the lunch room.  It encourages students to sit with a new crowd at lunch, which often means with people from different races or cultural backgrounds.  Although the project had mixed success, according to the article, it’s nice to know people are thinking about this.
