Wisdom from kids about school lunches

My own independent citizen panel of three grandchildren weighed in on school lunches this weekend. They are assorted ages and in different schools in the suburbs. When asked, they said they taste "like ground cardboard mixed with water," and that most of the kids who "have to" buy lunch only eat part and throw the rest in the garbage. Also, that some food "looks funny colors," and my favorite, "they beg me for my extra food from home."

The 10-year-old dryly observed that nutritious food only works if you actually eat it, and added that his teacher eats "Big Macs." Perhaps the educated nutritionists should talk to a 6-year-old.
