Let’s get healthier food into Chicago schools
It’s highly sad as we discuss the merits of great food — organic or local or even in our own gardens — that the future of tomorrow is eating donuts and Pop-Tarts for breakfast — at school.
For those who haven’t read the horrifying details of the Chicago Public Schools menu issues, you should read this story in the Chicago Tribune. They say they will phase out the donuts and Pop-Tarts, and cut back on the daily nacho service in the high schools as well.
But there is still a lot to be reformed in removing the bad and improving the good. This is an improvement, but there is so much more to be done.
As much as we claim to treasure our children, we feed them with pennies each day at school, and we get what we pay for. If Jamie Oliver wants to improve our school lunches like he did in England, be our guest.
Our children are worth it, aren’t they?
