The organic vegetables were actually quite cheap because we have a store in town that deals in only organic foods and produce. It is well supported by the town folk. Would your town support an organic food store? If not, why not? Once we know the why not – locally, we can begin to form better solutions – locally, to help our people have more nutritious and healthy foods
Is this on your local school lunch menus? If not, why not? Not all salads are alike – If your school has a salad what is in it? Iceberg lettuce and some off-the-store-shelf dressing with bad oils and high-fructose corn syrup does not a healthy meal make. Don’t be shy. Call your school and inquire about what they are feeding your children. Don’t let them slide – make sure they specify. Perhaps a visit to your school is in order to see what is being served? Get the truth – your kids deserve your effort.
