Pagdating sa school, hindi na natin alam kung anong kinakain ng kids natin. Although we may have painstakingly prepared their baon, there's no guarantee that they will eat it. I'm sure, you've encountered situations like your child trading his baon for a classmate's o kaya hindi niya kinain ang hinanda mo and instead bought food at the cafeteria.
While we can't avoid situations like that, we can still have a greater peace of mind with what our kids eat in school. How? By giving attention to the food served in the cafeteria.
We all want what's best for our kids especially pagdating sa nutrisyon nila. That is why, when given a chance, we should visit the cafeteria to check the menu. Don't be shy to do that. Besides, how can our kids continue to learn when the food they eat is unhealthy?
I think we also have to be present in our kids' schools and be proactive. If there is something we are not happy about sa food served in the cafeteria, we should tell the school director or principal about it. Teaming up with other parents to address the issue will also make school authorities know na important sa atin ang nutrisyon ng kids natin.
Also, we all know that cafeterias are a business. If left unchecked, contractors can maximize their profits in ways that may be unhealthy for our kids or our wallets. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying school cafeterias are bad. We, as parents, should just be watchful about everything that concerns our kids.
Finally, isn't it great to help improve the school that your child loves? Our kids go to school five days a week. It's like their second home. Helping to improve it in every aspect is a way of giving back to the school that has helped our kids develop their skills and talents.
