Maybe you’ve seen this and maybe you haven’t, but I wanted to pass this along. is a blog by a teacher who is eating school lunch everyday. Read .
It’s pretty interesting to see the food that the schools serve and to see the comments this teacher makes. She is experiencing what the kids eat everyday during school lunch.
I don’t know much about elementary schools and their policies, but from what I’ve read and heard, recess is becoming a thing of the past. I bring this up because it was mentioned in the above FAQs. At this particular school, the kids have 20 mins for lunch and no recess.
When I was in elementary school (I’m 27, to give you a reference point) we had 3 recesses each day: a 15 min recess in the morning, a 40-50 min lunch/recess in the middle of the day, and a 15 min recess in the afternoon. That was awesome. I remember playing soccer, basketball, and even jumping rope sometimes. What is happening in today’s world?
I know it’s a complicated issue that I don’t really understand, but really? No recess for kids at school? That’s a shame.
Sorry about that tangent, but check out . It’s pretty interesting.
