School Food (could) Rocks!

In Diet and Weight, Food and Health, Junk Food on August 8, 2011 at 12:01 pm

“I’ve had countless discussions over the past year with adults about school lunch. Not one adult has been against nutritious and sustainable food options for kids.

But the same adults who want better school lunches for kids are crushing triple stack burgers during their lunch break and take medication for nutrition-related diseases. Apparently the adults don’t believe in nutritious/sustainable food enough to partake themselves.

School lunches won’t change until we (adults) make a genuine change.”

From The Lunch Box blog, via Ann Cooper:

This quote is from a passionate school food advocate who’s been there, done that.  Mr. Andrews worked the lunch line at a middle school for an entire year and apparently didn’t need to be medicated or hospitalized afterwards!

Seriously, this is absolutely worth a read. His take on what’s wrong and his real, (mostly) doable solutions are a breath of fresh air on a topic that too often gets political like everything else in this country. I stole this cartoon from his post and plan on posting a copy above my workstation at the office. How true!

Eat Healthfully, Live Fully Healthy!
