Oh, no. My child has a fever. Quick, call the doctor. Go to the ER.

Get out the medicines to bring the temperature down.

Eating lunch at school is not just about satiating hunger — it helps kids learn and is an important part of their nutrition intake for the day.

Yet despite new guidelines intended to reduce obesity and improve the healthiness of school lunches, eating at the school cafeteria can come with its own set of challenges, particularly if a la carte and fast-food options are available.
