In Your Words: Mayor Stanton

Part of this challenge is to try and eat healthy, not just survive.  I looked at the USDA’s recipe book and tips and there are some good shopping hints, but not all the meals look healthy to me, especially for kids.  One suggested breakfast was orange juice, hash brown potatoes, and biscuits with margarine.  Excuse the timeworn phrase, but…where’s the beef? Or eggs, even?  Another day suggests OJ, cooked rice cereal and toast. There’s no protein in that meal and the “fruit” is juice- that’s not going to stick with you.  Kids have to be well nourished to pay attention in school- I’m concerned about struggling families being able to send their kids to school well-fed and “ready to learn.”
