What's for Breakfast: Waffles? Pancakes?

By Ed Bruske
aka The Slow Cook

Kids got a choice of waffles or pancakes on this particular morning. In fact, unless my eyes deceived, it looked like there were two varieties of pancakes on display: whole wheat and regular.

These are prepared convenience foods that arrive at the school frozen and are then warmed in a steamer. The waffles typically are a little too crunchy for my taste.

The schools used to serve pancakes and waffles with high-fructose corn syrup masquerading as maple syrup. Now they get a pool of yogurt on their waffle--or to dip their pancake in, as the case might be.

Notice the plain milk. D.C. public schools no longer serve flavored milk.

  1. Looks like the food is getting healthier little by little. Is this a popular breakfast (aka are they eating it)? That yogurt looks a little off putting, but maybe that's just me.
