Robbie goes to an Apple School and so they follow the guidelines of 3 groupings of food: choose most often, sometimes food, choose least often. Ritz crackers, IMHO, should fall under choose least often. The guidelines for Apple schools follow this Alberta Nutrition Guidelines For his school lunches they ask us to bring choose most often and the occasional sometimes food.

If I sent that with my kids, most of it would be thrown away.
At me to the W T F crowd
Are they the whole grain Ritz? Because if not, it was most likely the refined grain Ritz crackers which isn't really healthy at all. Also, to my knowledge, whole grains can be very fibrous and irritating at times for some people's digestive system.
I don't remember the last time I bought Ritz crackers. I'm not sure I ever have.
Now I want Ritz Crackers. I haven't had them in ages because they are not what I want in my every day diet.
I would be down at that school with flyers of what are actual healthy foods and why it is not Ritz Crackers. And then demanding they pay me 10.00 for wasting my gas.
