Are Today's School Lunches Too Healthy? What's the Real Problem?
The start of this school year brought protests over the federally subsidized school lunch program in some parts of the country, meals students described as being too healthy and lacking appeal - as well as adequate protein and carbohydrates.
A video featuring teenagers at one high school went viral last month. According to news reports, the kids got help producing the video from their English teacher. The woman said their dilemma inspired her to rewrite the lyrics of a pop song to illustrate their cause. The video showed kids “fainting” in the gym and hall as they lip-synched to the music, unable to function, ostensibly from hunger.
Let 'em all go to India and beg for their lunch in the streets. They'll come home and eat every morsel the cafeteria lady puts on their tray.
But wait. What if they’re right? At least partially, anyway. Read my take on the school lunch problem at http://www.familyfieldguide.com/.
