Kids just won't eat that salad he made either, but I don't know what can be done to make children eat vegetables in a school environment where they have the option of trashing it.
I suggest that we treat the kids like kittens when you have to change food on 'em. Of course they aren't going to eat the new stuff at first, but eventually they're going to be hungry and learn they have no other option and learn to like it. The worst thing that could happen is these kids will go a week or two with a few less calories before they wisen up to the fact that the pizza man isn't making deliveries to the school anymore.
I love this show and signed the petition to get better food in the schools. Time for the US to put it's money where it's mouth is with respect to preventative health care. . We focus so much on homicide, gun laws, and walk all over God's creation for breast cancer, but none of that is killing people at the rate of diet related heart problems. And the cost of Type II Diabetes... sheesh. There's your healthcare reform.
