I've been thinking a lot about food lately. The the other night I was watching Food Inc and it got me thinking a lot about food, this in addition to having watched Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution earlier this year. I'm shocked and it's gotten me thinking about what I can do, the one thing I keep coming back to is (that as just one person) that maybe the best way to help is to begin by changing the food served in our schools. Our children deserve healthier food and as a taxpayer I strongly believe this issue is something our government can change.
it's a huge endeavor but one that I see as doable. I'm not a chef, a politician, or have big pockets, but I am a tax paying parent who wants to see change. But consider this: the S.F. Board of Supervisors wants to ban toys from happy meals; wouldn't changes to school food be more necessary and more important?
What do you think?
