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.

I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)

Be yourself and most important of all, be kind. You will get great friends by doing so. Being popular doesn't always mean being nice; sometimes people tend to be rude and bossy to be "popular" and that isn't good. But if you participate or even start a group at school, at the library or somewhere important in the community (community service like the Rotary Club is a good way to start for kids and teens) can be a great way to meet friends and share your happiness.

You can write a note or a card to him. I'm sure he'll understand. And of course if needed see a doctor so that he'll know what to do to deal with those headaches.

You won't want to be, it's exhausting. Just be happy the way you are and don't care about what others think or say about you.
