Just read the Daily Blog on SP (link below) about how the "new" Federal lunch program recommendations are being operationalized in the schools. The main excitement in this article is how pizza is now being served with a serving of veggies and fresh fruit.
I know - a step in the right direction and all that, but REALLY?
I also know we have to give kids what they will eat, cause even pizza at school is probably better than nothing until they get home and load up on Pop Tarts, but REALLY?
Anyway, I sometimes despair at what passes for progress, I am always in a hurry for positive changes to happen - I wouldn't do well in highly politicized environments - like school lunch programs.
Have a great non-pizza filled day.
