I came across this blog last week, and it’s really fascinating. A blogger, know as Mrs. Q, has brought national attention to lunches in school cafeterias with her blog, Fed Up With Lunch. Mrs. Q, who works at a school in Chicago, forgot her lunch one day and ventured down to the cafeteria. Her lunch was a “bagel dog”. Mrs. Q bought the bagel dog at the cafeteria and figured: How bad can it be?

Turns out: Really bad.

“It was this massive amount of dough covering a hot dog, plus tater tots and a fruit cup. And I thought, ‘This is it?’ ” Mrs. Q recalled.

She looked at her students, most of whom rely on government-subsidized free lunches at school. The bagel dog that turned her stomach would be, for many, the best meal of their day.

Mrs. Q has eaten school lunches for 160 school days (one school year) and has made some very interesting discoveries, as well as helped bring national attention to just how nutrition poor some of the lunches are. Furthermore, the blog led to a discovery with Mrs. Q’s own two year old son, who had been chronically sick with ear infections and colds. She realized her son’s health problems might be related to what he was eating. She cut out gluten and dairy from his diet, and his health improved dramatically.

“I wouldn’t have made those connections if I had not done this blog. I’ve seen a complete change in my son,” she said.

She and her husband are eating differently, too: “I would never have thought of feeding my family quinoa. It sounded too hippie. Now I like it.”
