It is hard to sort through the topic of what is exactly occurring with the attempts to improve our children’s school lunches. We hear that kids throw away the healthy choices leading to more food waste, that the kids don’t get enough calories for the day, etc, etc. On top of that the School Nutrition Association (SNA) and big food companies are becoming critics of the healthier policies and behind the scenes try to undermine any attempts. An actual study came up with some encouraging results – that some initiatives are working! This blog has devoted a lot of attention to the diets of our children since that is where (in my opinion), our food culture needs to initially change – i.e., establish healthy eating habits early in life and the earlier the better.
