The Winner of the writing activity and now National Merit Scholar is........*drums*PB&Jay- An American Mainstay
Since its introduction in 1904, peanut butter has become an American mainstay. In the 1940’s, GIs in World War II were given rations of both peanut butter and jelly. Upon their return, the sales of peanut butter and jelly soared, suggesting that this was the birthplace of the PB&J. Since then, Americans have eaten approximately 1,500 PB&Js each, before graduating high school! Now Fort High wants to eliminate the PB&J from our lunch menu? Our lunchroom should continue serving this icon of American gastronomy not only because it is delicious but also affordable and nutritious.
With annual school budget cuts, PB&J sandwiches are an excellent way to help ease the financial burden. Peanut butter and jelly costs less than $0.20 each per serving; bread costs less than $0.13 per serving. That is a total cost of $0.53 per sandwich. Compare this to a hamburger, which can cost up to $0.88 per serving!
Not only are PB&Js inexpensive, they pack a nutritional punch. For example, a hamburger has an average 25 grams of fat (8 saturated) and 425 calories. Conversely, a PB&J has 18 grams of fat (3.5 saturated) and 403 calories. PB&Js have protein, folate, vitamin E, magnesium, and other nutrients associated with reduced risk of heart disease.
Delicious, nutritious, and inexpensive, it is no wonder that the PB&J has become an American icon, intertwined in the childhood memories of many. To remove the PB&J sandwich from our lunch menu would be a travesty some might even call un-American.
