Anyway, he had to get up today to go to Math-a-thon, so I thought I would make a hot breakfast for everyone; hence, no time to make lunches for the monkeys.
I checked out what was on the PSD lunch calendar and as usual, I get grossed out just by reading it.
PSD does try. They offer a salad bar (which I'm sure my boys do not visit), serve whole wheat bread for greasy hockey pucks (burgers) and feature a fruit or veggie every month. They actually think that serving wheat "Uncrustables" as oppesed to white bread Uncrustables is a better choice. What is an 'Uncrustable"? It's a PBJ pre-made in a bag without the crust. Jeez, we can't even spread a fresh PBJ for our kids? I decided to check out the nutional info on these fau PBJs. I am frightened by what I found.
A regular PBJ conatins what? Let's say you have natural ingredients in your kitchen. Your PBJs will contain whole wheat bread, jam preserves (all fruit), and natural peanut butter (only peanuts as ingredients). That is 3 ingredients.
Uncrustables contain over 50 ingredients and almost all of those ingredients are things I cannot pronounce. I'll admit, I'm not the hugest health nut, but I am conscious of what my kids and I eat. My highly scientific rule of thumb is, if I can't pronounce the it, I won't serve it to my kids. Straight from the Smucker's Uncrustables website, here are the ingredients and what your kids are served for lunch at PSD when they choose a PBJ sandwich.
