Do you think schools should provide healthier lunches, even if it costs more?
Absolutely. I was just reading an article on Yahoo about the pink slime that is processed in our school meats. Where is the real ground meat? & Why do the schools feel they need to serve meat to children with all these fillers?
Definitely. Children's health should not be a cost issue. Nobody's should, but baby steps are all that can be expected right now.
I don't think the problem is with school lunches. School lunches have been around for decades, but obesity has not. We are so busy with running our kids around to sports and activities and we don't take the time out to eat a healthy meal at home. Years ago kids went outside to run around and play. Came in for dinner, had a small snack and got ready for bed. Life was much more simpler and healthier 30 years ago.
I most certainly think that schools should provide healthier lunches, even if it costs more. There is so much easy access to junk food now days and nutrition is starting to become lost. People who eat healthier tend to have less problems with stress, depression, lower physical problems, less illness, and overall seem to just function better. Overall schools will get better students and have a higher success rate if they did spend the extra doe on healthy lunches instead of the soda machines.

I thought this article was interesting, especially since it appeared in the NYT. According to this guru, costs will INCREASE, not decrease. This is the same guru that democrats hailed as wonderful when he challenged Bush. Don't worry, though, costs will increase by only a few billion, and what's a...
