The School Lunch Bill

On December 13th, President Obama signed into law a school lunch bill that any fan of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution (or just good, fresh food) will be proud of. The White House blog has released a comparison chart showing examples of meals before and after the bill. As one who ate these school lunches not that long ago, I can tell you these kids are lucky. Chicken patties, beef tacos and mushy spaghetti were never favorites around the lunch room. In fact, my high school had a special lunch line, where for $2 more we could get better meals (spicy chicken fingers, Papa John’s pizza…better, not healthier). In none of these situations were our nutritional needs being served, and I can attest to the fact that from first through eighth grade, I always chose the chocolate milk over the plain. If given a chance, what kid wouldn’t? So kudos to the school lunch bill, if anyone deserves fresh, healthy meals, it’s the eight-year-olds who have to sit through long division.
