This week, USA Today came out with an interesting article titled: Fast-food standards for meat top those for school lunches.
” In the past three years, the government has provided the nation’s schools with millions of pounds of beef and chicken that wouldn’t meet the quality or safety standards of many fast-food restaurants, from Jack in the Box and other burger places to chicken chains such as KFC, a USA TODAY investigation found.”
After a recent visit to our own school’s cafeteria (my experience will be posted soon!), I’d probably agree. It really makes you think about what the kids are eating and how it’s going to affect their health in the future… or even now!
