BIC: Breakfast in the Classroom: LAUSD Sugarfest and Corporate Windfall

November 24, 2014

I have a new name for BIC: Believe it’s Crap because it is! So this is the kind of crap my students are fed for former superintendent Deasy’s much -heralded “Breakfast in the Classroom.”   This particular morning it was Cinnamon Crisps ( with less than 1% cinnamon and a whole lot of sugar) and Chex cereal with almost as much sugar.  There were also some fresh apples and milk I wouldn’t trust to drink- but that’s just me.   With so many other healthy options available and this being largely grant -funded, it would make sense to survey and see who wants the breakfast and then order something healthy like the following:  Go Raw granola and rice or almond milk and fresh fruit.   Those are sustainable and healthy items.
