Lessons from the Lunchlady: is a noodle a vegetable?

We had a short week last week mostly because Pennsylvania weather is completely unpredictable.

Who has a snow day at the end of March?

With no school on Monday and holiday break to begin on Friday, the three days in the middle went pretty fast.

Here's what I learned.

Sometimes you can make a "willy bad choice". After two kindergarteners were sent to the office for making less than appropriate choices one said to the other "If we ever get out of here, I promise I will never do that again."

The mile high club. We overheard one 3rd grader asking another 3rd grader if he was a member of the mile high club in some video game they were both playing. Here's hoping that his mile high club is different than this version.

Is a noodle a vegetable? As most of you know, a qualifying lunch must include a vegetable or a fruit. This week I was asking the students, who were passing on the broccoli but taking the Alfredo noodles, if noodles were a vegetable. It saddens me that many of them thought they were.

What did you learn this week?

"If we ever get out of here..." I LOVE THAT!

And noodles ARE a vegetable. Haven't you ever heard of spaghetti squash?

It is sad how many veggies kids don't know about and what they think is a veggie. It isn't just little ones either. One of my daughters friends that is now 21 is here now and then for dinner. 9 times out of 10 she either doesn't like the veggies we are serving or has never even heard of them. And I suspect some of the ones she 'doesn't like' she has never tried.
