Meal Planning, Food and Diet
Question from Muncie, Indiana, USA:
I have a 5-year-old son. He is starting kindergarten this year. He will be in school all day, and will eat lunch there. Do the school lunches meet the nutritional requirements of 5 to 6 carbohydrates?
It would be best to check with your local school nutrition service to see how many carbohydrates they figure in the school lunch program. Keep in mind that a young child may not be able to eat that much carbohydrate in a meal. Do check with the school lunch program, though.
