Make Your School Cafeteria Healthy

With school just around the corner, are you dreading the thought of eating that nasty cafeteria food? Well listen up cuz Kidzworld is offering up some suggestions to turn your cafeteria menu from bad to good!

The Cafeteria Menu - Greens Galore

With a menu full of high-fat foods like french fries, cheeseburgers, hot dogs and mac and cheese, it's obvious that the biggest prob is a lack of vegetables (ketchup, relish and those itty-bitty shreds of lettuce don't count as veggies!). So get the vitamins and minerals that your body needs with the fresh fruit and veggies offered at the salad bar. If your cafeteria doesn't have a salad bar, then it's time to get one cuz all the school's have one! Loading up on nutrient-rich foods will help you concentrate in class and rock on all those pop quizzes.

The Cafeteria Menu - A Lean, Mean Chili

Whether it's sloppily served on a bun or in a bowl, there's no doubt that chili is the star of the menu. Sure, beans may cause a stink, but they're a good source of fiber. However, the beef that goes into is the really bad, fatty kind. The healthy and simple solution is to switch from beef to turkey!

The Cafeteria Menu - Veggie Delight

Let's face it - there's not a lot of choices for all the vegetarians out there. They're usually stuck with a fruit cup and not much else, so it's time to make some changes! We're not talking bean sprout sandwiches and tofu salads, but how about a nice veggie burger? Hamburgers are already on the menu, so adding a few veggie patties to the grill is easy enough.

The Cafeteria Menu - Sweet 'N Low-Fat

It's not the best to endulge their sweet tooth with pudding or jello everyday! So suggest stocking the dessert section with frozen yogurt, low-fat yogurt or even fruit smoothies - all that needs to be done is to throw the fruit into a blender and whip it to frothy perfection!

The Cafeteria Menu - From H to O

The school calendar is about 180 days long, so drinking pop on a daily basis is an absolute no-no cuz it rots your teeth and gives you too many cavities to count. Instead, grab a refreshing bottle of water or carton of milk. Milk is an excellent source of calcium and does a body good!

The Cafeteria Menu - Who to Talk to

Now that the suggestions have been made, who can ya talk to? The best peeps are your 'rents, teacher or principal cuz they can bring it up at the next PTA meeting or tell the school board.

It's normal to feel jealousy, and it's not really too bad a thing unless you let it get to you and cause problems. I get jealous as hell but I try to avoid letting it affect the way I hold a conversation, for example.

So there's this guy in my class and he sits next to me. Correction he HAS to sit next to me, So my classroom as a table with 2 desks connected to make a huge desk but separated holders things to put our stuff in. So this guy is really the class clown of the class and he can be a jerk when he wants to be but sometimes can be a really nice guy. He likes to talk to me and he "Occasionally" Touches my hand or arm in a friendly way.. I think :3 but anyways he teases me ... A LOT but he sometimes insults me but when he sees my face not cracking into a smile. he instantly says sorry or didnt mean it like that kind of way and i smile. So does he like me? Or he just being a regular guy?

My best friend is autistic and mild to moderate on the spectrum. He has a daily routine and obviously keeps to it.  His sister who's 18 told me about his condition. And she spoke to me about how much help he needs around the house. My friend doesn't actually need all that much help, as his autism isn't that bad compared to others I know. He mainly suffers reading people's emotions, and having the confidence to make friends and talk aloud. But his sister did complain that he was always the needy one around the house when she was younger.  What you've got to understand is that autism affects people in different ways, no autistic person is the same, and so requires a different level of work and help towards them. Your brothers didn't ask for this. They were born like that. I know how it feels though, feeling left out. And feeling like your parents don't love you. They really do. They just don't have time to express that love, which is kinda sad really.  Maybe you could get involved in helping your brothers out. Depending on how old they are, you can educate them on reading emotions, and things like that. They're great life skills. Or simply just being there for them is something you can do. Autism itself is a pretty frustrating thing for the person who has it. My friend hates it, but tries to live with it as a gift. Just a little support can go a long way.
