School Lunches, Part II

It appears that no one read my post on school lunches a week ago--or cared enough about it to share a response. Well, I'm undeterred . . . here's a followup.
  • The New York Times reviews the ABC show Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution
  • A nutrition professor follows up with a review of her own for The Atlantic
  • Chef Ann Cooper talks about her efforts to improve school food programs because, without changing the food we're serving, "we're feeding our children to death"

This is a fascinating and somewhat astonishing topic to me--that we have gotten to a point at which people must be convinced that it's important to feed our children good food and teach them about proper nutrition?!

Wow. Just wow.

  1. Agreed! My sister recently got donuts taken off the menu at Lincoln Elementary...not sure about the private schools but Dickinson Public Schools need a serious wake-up call!
