Most people left behind fruit cups and milk cartons in grade school, but a teacher in the American Midwest who goes by the pen name “Mrs Q” has vowed to eat school lunches with her students for a full year and blog about it. She’s calling it the ‘Fed Up With Lunch’ school project, and the blog can be reached at She says one of her goals is to “raise awareness about what students eat every day.”

On May 27, day 88 of the experiment, she took a photo of her tray of chicken nuggets, carrots, bread, a mixed-fruit cup and milk. “I could go the rest of my life without eating another chicken nugget,” she wrote. “This is the tenth chicken nugget meal I’ve eaten (that number does not include the chicken patties I’ve also consumed). I have ingested more chicken nuggets over the past five months than I have in my entire life.”
