A couple of years ago, one of my son’s friends sincerely asked me, “Ms. R., do you know how much he eats? I mean really! Everyday at lunch! Have you seen what he eats?” And my answer was, “Yes, I do. I pack those lunches!” He was unmoved. “No, really, do you KNOW how much he eats?” Indeed, I do know. As mother of two teenage swimmers, I know. We’ve laughed a lot about that conversation, and the truth in it. Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, lean meat, legumes, cheeses, yogurt, whole grains, and water fill lunch sacks and cover our table each day.
