what’s for lunch

I’m kind of happy to shop at Whole Foods because they promote better school lunches.  I remember my middle school/high school lunches, and, I have to say the foodservice wasn’t great, so I ate peanut butter most days.  And I still love it.
Something has to happen with the food policy in this country, and I hope it will come as a part of the healthcare push.  Generation Y and the following ‘Millenial’ generation face the specter of a decreasing life expectancy compared to our parents, in part due to the weight and diabetes epidemic.
The school lunch was designed when getting enough calories was a priority, and processed food wasn’t as prevalent.  now that processed food is so cheap as to displace real food, it makes financial sense to give the kids reconstituted substitute food product..
