Commemorating 50 years of School Lunch

This makes a fun side dish or hearty snack. To make it into a true meal, add leftover meat, poultry, fish, or mashed beans, and vegetables like chopped spinach or broccoli to the potato.

This Month includes United Nations Day (October 24). Why not create an "Adventures in Eating" bulletin board at home? Put a map of the world on it. Get Colored pins. Each time a child tries foods from each Pyramid Food Group they make a colorful cutout of the food, and attach it to the map with a pin, in the area of the world where that food is commonly eaten. Remember to celebrate "National School Lunch Week."
