I've been eating lunchroom food this year.
I'm trying to decided if I want to keep on doing that or not.
I can either eat what the students have or select a baked potato, or cold plate.
A cold plate has crackers, 2 fruits, and either chicken or tuna salad. I think the manager would hold the fruit if I requested it.
I can also take my lunch (which may or may not be practical since I push a wheel chair to the lunchroom.)
What do you or did you do about lunchtime?
Well, I used to eat school lunch, but it was before I had diabetes. It wasn't very nutritious, and ALWAYS had french fries, which I cannot stand to this day! Then when I did develop diabetes, I didn't know enough not to eat it -- but I did do a lot of salads instead of the regular meal.
The cold plate you describe would be OK, if you left over the crackers. The fruit would be better for you than the crackers!
If you push a child in a wheelchair to lunch, you could say "Sweetie, could you hold my lunch for me?" and put the lunch in the child's lap. It might make them feel good to be able to help you!
Good luck, and keep up the good work!
School Lunches have improved somewhat. Ours bakes everything but some of the meat is still pretty high in fat.
If the the ladies like you they give you really big portions.
This group really likes me.
Natalie you've given me an idea.
On days I eat a cold plate I could take a whole wheat round and put the tuna or chicken salad on it.
The fruit servings are far to large but I could take my own fruit or perhaps some baby carrot and lf dip
Thank you very much
