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'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
