Say Cheeese! Cheese Everyday for the Obama Girls.

The Obama girls' have started attending Sidwell Friends School in DC.  A very upper crust place.  I have several colleagues who are alumni,  and it is indeed a fabulous school. 
However, can I have a word with the chef?
TMZ posted the schools' lunch menu,  and it appears that amidst the many healthy organic items,  there is a whole boatload of cheese. In fact,  everyday there is at least one item with CHEESE as its main ingredient!
Call me a cheese-hater,  but cheese everyday is not very healthy.  Cheese is high in saturated fat and children with allergies may be aggravated by this cheese-heavy menu.
A few of the cheesy items appearing everyday...

Day 1
Cheese Tortellini with Garden Marinara
Cheese Tortellini with Fresh Marinara
Day 2
Roasted Veggie Melts
Philly Cheesesteaks
Veggie Melts
Day 3
Apples and Cheese
Southwestern Caesar Salad
Nacho Bar
Black Bean Nachos
Pineapple Gratin
Day 4
Bagels and Green Cheese
Caesar Salad
Day 5
Tomato Mozzarella Salad
Three Cheese Macaroni
Tomato Mozzarella Salad
However, also appearing on the menu....  the Local Pumpkin and Sage Soup sounds divine,  as well as the Cinnamon Orange Slices. ...Girls, load up on those healthy concoctions!  
So I guess a little cheese is OK.  Just don't eat the cheesy entrees everyday girls!
