I didn't mean to be a songwriter; I just was writing for fun, you have all day to do it. I was homeless so that's all I had to do. Jewel
1. I have applied to a doctorate program, in Community Health Education, and want to develop a Community & Homeless Nutrition Toolkit (everyone gets educated) similar to what the genius Sabrina Hamm did with her project: http://www.sachousingalliance.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Homeless-Nutrition-Education-Toolkit-FINAL.pdf. I have looked at other nonprofits serving the homeless community and a few of them are using white bread and cookies for their meal menu distribution. I want to know, in terms of nutrition, how you feel about white bread being given to kids?
I grew up eating white bread
I have no problem with it
It's ok once in awhile to hand out
I would not recommend white bread anytime
Depends on what is in it
2. In doing research, I found that there is a 40% chance of obesity and diabetes associated with the consumption of white flour. Another article, regarding glycemic index, stated that using white bread for sandwiches was fine as long as you pair with something better on the GI list, like peanut butter. In terms of feeding kids, are you satisfied with the glycemic index recommendations suggesting peanut butter with white bread?
3. Next on the list is cookies. How do you feel about 1 cookie in a lunch bag, being distributed to homeless kids ?
Fine with me
Depends on the type of cookie
Not ok with me
4. Do you know of a healthy cookie alternative that could be substituted for the random chocolate chip cookie?
5. Lastly, it's pretty well known that being homeless is exhausting, makes you prone to illness, & requires more calories than someone who is housed. Couple this with efficiently preparing food bags for large quantities of people on a budget. Is there a way to do this using healthy food items?
