Fed Up With Lunch Blog

Guest Author - Brandii Lacey

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution show has created a buzz about the quality of school lunches in America. Prior to the TV show debut, many individuals were (and still are) working hard to accomplish the same goal. One such individual is “Mrs. Q”—a teacher who is quiet simply “Fed up with lunch.”

Mrs. Q started her blog titled “Fed up with Lunch—The School Lunch Project” with the goal of bringing awareness about the quality of school lunches served to students. Her goal is to eat and blog about school lunch every day in 2010.

She takes a picture of her own school lunch, and then posts it on her blog. She gives her opinion on appearance, taste and quality of the food. Readers are welcome to comment and share their own experiences with school lunches. Pictures of lunch trays featuring pizza, chicken nuggets, chicken patties, tatar tots and cheese sandwiches are just some of the examples featured on her blog.

Mrs. Q wishes to remain anonymous in order protect her identity and career. Her blog notes that she certainly isn’t speaking for every school in America. She must be on to something, though, especially considering how successful shows such as Food Revolution have become.

Mrs. Q discusses the challenge of teaching students after they’ve eaten a meal full of fat and sugar, but low in fiber. She sees firsthand how hard it is to get kids to concentrate in the classroom after eating these types of food for lunch. In addition, she notes the time challenge of lunch. Students at her school have twenty minutes for lunch. This includes standing in the lunch line to get food, eating and cleaning up.

The “School Lunch Project” blog is an amazing chance for you to see up close what your kids may be eating for school lunches. On her blog, Mrs. Q has compiled a list of others who are passionate about changes being made in the cafeteria.

I don’t know if we’ll ever know who Mrs. Q is, but I’d like to personally tell her “Thank you!” It’s advocates like Mrs. Q who make a difference in the world, one blog post at a time.
