This is the time of the year when I visit my student teachers at their practicum sites. I am so lucky to live in Chicago where there are so many wonderful programs and classrooms for young children. We have every kind of program imaginable; Montessori, half-day Head Start, full-day Head Start, Reggio-inspired classrooms, emergent curricula, Preschool For All, etc., etc., etc.
Sometimes, everything about a program is perfect, and then I see this. What are nutritionists thinking when they present this food to children? What do you see and what is the problem? To me, it is obvious and sad.
Hint: My husband would not have a problem with the food above.
