A father of a student emailed me, angry that the cafeteria sells Coke and 7-up, and that 7th graders shouldn't be expected to choose healthy options when that is available, what am I going to do about it?
Ugh! First of all, I am the least influential person when it comes to what the cafeteria serves. I am not even remotely involved in the decision-making there. I responded that while those options are available, there is also bottled water, and a FREE filtered water dispenser with cups, right in the middle of the cafeteria, that his child can use all day long, for FREE. Yes, pop is bad for you. Also, you need to talk with your kid about your personal preference about what he drinks, or don't send money, and pack a lunch yourself for him. He's bringing this issue to the school board. Go ahead.
