Salam Alaikum Martha!

We are a grade 2 class at a school in the United Arab Emirates. We have been studying healthy eating at school, more specifically what food we need to make our brains work really well. We have also been looking at what makes us different. It has been great fun looking on your blog at all the different meals from around the world. The picture we have sent you one of the healthier lunches in our class. The croissant is stuffed with za'atar. Za'atar is a Middle Eastern spice mixture used in many meats and even vegetables. Miss Emma, our teacher, likes it on her homemade pizzas. Because our country is so hot most of the food is imported from other countries. We hope to keep reading your blog and keep up with all your fabulous work (saw you on BBC here the other week, so cool!). Ma`a as-salāma

Food-o-meter: 9/10
Health: 8/10. The fruit juice does have a lot of sugar. Milk or water would have been better.
Recess: We play outside for 15 minutes, then come inside to eat for 15 minutes.
Price: Brought it from home. Thursday is canteen day in our class.
