In the bubble this week

Fuel for growing minds and bodies

Fuel for growing minds and bodies

Something very worthwhile, actually. Our very own local PTA people lobbying USDA for better school lunches. And making nice analogies (calcium is to strawberry milk as vitamin C is to screwdrivers).

(What a refreshing change from last year, when the school’s Foundation sold our kids to a marketing company so they could gather intelligence on the best way to sell overprocessed nastiness to other kids. We’re too smart to let *our* kids eat that stuff, but we’ll take money to let them tell Armour how to sell it to less privileged kids.)

Back to the positive: the school’s health and nutrition committee has promising leadership this year, including one of those testifying this week. (Watch it on TV)
