    I was looking back at some of the older threads on Chef Talk in the Pro-forums, and this one struck me

    http://www.cheftalk.com/t/68578/making-a-school-lunch-program-healthy

    I know that there are plenty of home economic masters in Chef Talk that could come up with a great school lunch plan  for three dollars or even less for both breakfast and lunch, we do it everyday...

    I challenge you non-professionals as well as Pro-Chefs to do it...

    When I Googled top healthy ingredients under $1.00 I found :

    Oats

    Eggs

    Kale

    Potatoes

    Apples

    Nuts

    Bananas

    Garbanzo beans  

    Broccoli

    Watermelon

    Wild Rice

    Beets

    Butternut Squash

    Whole Grain Pasta

    Tofu

    Low fat Milk

    Pumpkin Seeds

    Maybe she means per serving.

    That's just an example of what I found online as far as inexpensive, nutritious foods. 

    I'm thinking that we here at Chef Talk could come up with a breakfast as well as

    lunch menu for $3.00 per school kid.  Where I went to school, we were feed a hot

    lunch every day.  Looking back in my mind's eye, I would say that they served us kids

    pretty wholesome foods.  And I think that it was from scratch, other than some

    canned veg when they had to.
