Bag Lunch Vs. Buying

This never ending debate was tested by the LABBB Transition Program. We all have good intentions about being fiscally and nutritionally responsible with lunch, but life happens. My challenge to the students was to design my lunch for five days. They needed to keep it healthy, but filling all while staying under the very conservative $7.00 average per day buying lunch cost.

Goal: Design a bag lunch that will cost less than buying lunch.

Details: Buy enough lunch ingredients for five consecutive work days. Each day must consist of a sandwich, fruit and snack. We will breakdown the daily cost of the bag lunch and compare it to our average cost of $7.00 for buying lunch.

Results: Bag lunch WINS!!! $5.20 per day.
-Saving $1.80 per day. Also, included a fruit and a snack!
-$36.00 total monthly savings

Fruit: 3 Bananas & 2 Pears
Snack: Individual humus packs w/ carrots
Wrap: Whole wheat wrap, spicy brown mustard, fresh roasted turkey breast (not processed), reduced fat pepper jack cheese, cucumber, red bell pepper and avocado.

1st Transition Student, Kelsey Atwater, Leaves LABBB with Exciting News.

Kelsey Atwater will be leaving LABBB next week and shares her exciting news about what she will be doing.

Kelsey has always had the goal of working with children. So, two years ago she began climbing the ladder towards that goal.  While attending the LABBB Program she started a two year internship at a local daycare. Just this past summer she took a course at North Shore Community College to be able to apply for an Early Education & Care (EEC) Professional Certification.  Just this past weekend she received a letter in the mail with the attached state certification. This will allow her to work as a preschool teacher in a daycare.

We are very excited for Kelsey and what she has achieved.
