An Insider Look at Lunchtime in the Schools

I can’t believe that my youngest monster is starting his senior year tomorrow. If you have been following me, you are familiar with my son, Joshua, who we discovered is lactose intolerant while he was still in elementary school. Having a child with a food intolerance always makes social events interesting. You never know where a food that your child might not tolerate is lurking and the school lunches, despite drastic jumps in awareness and interest in our child’s health, are not always the best choices for our individual children. The truth of the matter is that we all just want our children to be happy, healthy and safe!

I am lucky to know Barbara Haimowitz. Barbara is a retired transitional kindergarten teacher. Because of her experience working in various schools, Barbara has insider information on exactly what gets eaten during school lunches and what many of the challenges are.

Barbara loves working with children and continues to do so by offering various educational workshops to children and their parents.

I interviewed Barbara on my t.v. show, New Beginnings to Health, which may be seen on Ashland Cable t.v., WACA. Please, take a moment to watch this episode to learn ways to save the sanity of your family, pack lunches that are healthy and get eaten and introduce our children to habits that will serve them throughout life.

Here is the interview:
