 Do you think chocolate milk should be served in schools?  

What do you think of the USDA subsidizing fruits and vegetables?

  1. I read the article a couple days ago and some of the comments by users that were either for or against it. My opinion is that I do not think chocolate milk should be a daily beverage whether at school or at home. When I little it was considered a "treat" and only given to us maybe once every couple weeks, if that. I also think that school cafeteria programs have a lot more unhealthy crap they are serving besides chocolate milk. They need to overhaul the whole system. I get there is funding and budgets behind everything, but these are our children we are feeding. You can't tell me their isn't a local grocery store, farmer's market or farm that wouldn't possibly donate or help out in a healthy food program at schools. Another idea could be school's making it part of the curiculum or an after school group where they plant a garden on their land. I worked with a non-profit society that provided healthy lunch meals every day for 100-150 people on less than $100 a week, so it can be done :)

  2. I read in the news (I think I posted a link to in in another digest) that there is a grant for impoverished school districts to create gardens for use in school foods. I think it is a great idea and should be part of the curriculum. Since I live in the Midwest, many schools have agriculture programs and it would be nice to see more nationwide.
