Improving School Lunch

There's a bill in the Senate that would require the Agriculture Department to improve the standards of school lunches. You can read about it here:

If passed, the food they feed our children in school will be healthier, and, hopefully, lead to better eating habits so they don't have to deal with the weight problems their parents do. It won't be a massive turn-around--they'll be no seaweed, crusted tofu rolls-- but kids might see their pizza made with whole-wheat crust and low fat mozzarella.

I'm all for improvement. I'm sure critics will say the proposed legislation does not go far enough, but I say any step in the right direction is a step in the right direction.

On the same note, Jamie Oliver's show "Food Revolution" premiers tonight on ABC. I plan on setting my DVR. On the show, he tries to improve school lunches in one town.
