Seems the fluffernutter has moved from the cafeteria to the lunch sack. The Globe offers a story about the joys of getting a kid to eat a healthy lunch. Tufts found that the contents of those brown bags sometime fall short on the nutrition scale.
The nutritional shortcomings of school lunches have been a matter of national debate for decades — but the focus has been on what schools serve, not on what moms and dads pack in the lunch bags.
Now Tufts University researchers have looked inside all those bags — and discovered that none of the lunches met all five National School Lunch Program standards, which emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low- or nonfat dairy, and only 27 percent of the lunches met at least three of the goals.
