Castro parents have their own unique blend. It’s not exactly the most easy neighborhood to hustle about in with your kids. However, compared to other neighborhoods, the Castro has a lot of parents of older kids. For this reason, you should be aware that the breakfast at the public schools are simply terrible this month.
Sure, when we were in school, there was always the mystery meat. Despite will we tell the kids, they are not going to eat something that they hate. If you look over the menu for the district wide middle school and high school school breakfast for the month of November, you can already hear the whining.
Kids at that age have such a big appetite. Especially, kids in the Castro tended travel quite a bit in the morning. However, most of the menu is filled with a couple of light snack options as opposed to a full meal with protein featured.
Breakfast options provided by the school are something to consider when doing meal planning at home. This month, it might be a good idea to provide a protein snack in the morning end addition to the school breakfast. After all, if they do not get a good breakfast in the morning, they will be hungry far before noon.
Also important to note is that most of the menu is full of high carbohydrate and high sugar items. It is basically two small carbs and an apple. There is very little protein. You can view the menu here.
