Students today are not eating a proper diet, especially in the school cafeteria. Your challenge is to design a school lunch menu for one school week that would be appealing yet nutritionally sound for children. You should include drinks, main courses, side dishes, snacks and desserts. Make sure that you offer a variety of choices, while still remembering that people need to cook these meals every day. Consult the food pyramid and RDIs in order to make sure you meet the dietary needs for children of school age. You can decide if your menu will be for elementary, middle or high school age children. Please try to serve foods that are not the same old things that kids eat every day like hot dogs, etc. which are not a healthy choices to be eating regularly. Try to be creative, make the meals enjoyable yet nutritious and most of all remember that you are feeding kids which are typically quite choosy.
You should include a one page typed justification for your choices which could also include a comparison of your items to the RDIs for your age children.
