The Food Pyramid of a 5-Year Old

Carter has been eating one meal a week in the cafeteria at school. This was what was on the menu last Friday for him to pick from:

Entree:
Nachos with Meat & Cheese
Nachos with Cheese
Fish on a Bun with/without Coleslaw
Chef Salad

Sides:
Refried or Pinto Beans
Corn
Mashed Potatoes
Fresh Pear
Peaches
Shredded Lettuce with Diced Tomatoes
Celery Sticks & Carobites
Trail Mix
Tossed Salad
Congealed Fruit

My son, who when I pack his lunch sometimes gets TWO vegetables, selected the items in red and washed them all down with an ice cold chocolate milk.

Another $1.75 well spent.

Carter Makes A Second Withdrawal

I can only trust that the Tooth Fairy's investments have not been negatively impacted by the lagging economy in quite the same way that Carter's parents' have. Surely TF's incredibly competent CFP advised that she not only diversify, but that she keep enough in cash to pay down our entire nation of 5-year olds. Right?
