Less Than a Sound Bite, School Lunch

Same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was …. ~David Byrne

Raise your hand if you’ve heard this week’s soundbite, “Pizza is a Vegetable.”  It’s the news stations’ parody of the final version of a bill that would have made school lunches healthier – but didn’t get passed by Congress because they sold out to the interests of Big Food. I shook down the issue for my article at Diets In Review titled, Congress Denies All Changes to School Lunch Throwing Children’s Health Under the Bus.  It was a fun write.

And so school lunch will be the same as it ever was, and lest we forget, visit the website, American Lunchroom.  The site posts photos of what our kids are being served at school.  Send them a photo of what school lunch looks like in lunchroom near you.

Your thoughts: How much does school lunch impact the diets of American kids?
