Today is the last day before a 10 day vacation in France! And today is the last time to look at school lunch menus in Toms River….When vacation is over we will keep on comparing school lunches in France and America, but we will look at school lunch menus in 7 different cities in America to 7 different cities in France.  But stay tuned in, because during the next 10 days I will highlight some of the delectable French recipes that are served in the French school cafeteria.  Carrots Vichy, Pumpkin Puree, Tabouli Salad..these are only some of what you can discover by returning.  I think school lunches are a hot topic!  These kids are our future…we need to offer them balanced and healthy food choices in school!  More on that after the 30 days are up!  Finally, here is the school lunch menu for Day 23: 

Toms River, NJ

Served with Choice of 1 Main Dish, 2 Sides and a Half Pint of Milk

Domino’s Pizza or Tossed Salad with Tuna

Tossed Salad

Rosati Italian Ice


Pau, France

Served with slices of baguette and a glass of water

Mixed Salad Sprinkled with Grated Swiss Cheese

Macaroni and Bolognese Sauce

Vanilla Pudding


Pizza Day in Toms River…like every Friday.  And a typical Pau school lunch menu:  salad for the first course,

 followed by pasta and bolognese sauce and a pudding for dessert.  Both fun meals to serve on a Friday.  Both fun menus for the kids to enjoy!  And speaking of enjoying…now here is France it is “vacances.”  So, I wish everyone a great vacation…see you back soon for some recipes!
