英会話ブログ その785      School Lunches (1)

2016/03/31

In America in recent years there is a fight goin on about school lunches.

Some people, including Michelle Obama, the President's  wife, have recommended public school lunches be changed to include healthy foods.

Given the widespread obesity in the USA, this might be a good idea, but the steamed broccoli, carrot sticks and baked potato (no butter) recommended (among other things) hasn't found many fans.

When I was in school, parents thought an apple or banana included in a child's lunch was healthy enough.

A typical lunch then might be a peanut butter + grape jelly sandwich, (yes, horrible) or a sandwich made with bologna (pronounced as "baloney") and yellow mustard.

As mentioned before, a fruit such as a banana or apple was included, and dessert might be a pre-packaged piece of cake or pie, often made by the Hostess company.                                       (G.K)
