High School Students Fight Cafeteria Food

Thu, Mar 25, 2010


With the food crusades gaining weight in America, not only are Michelle Obama and Jamie Oliver trying to create a revolution full of fresh, nutritious, healthy, real food but so are Chicago high school students.

These teens have even decided to speak out about the “slop” they are being served in the school cafeteria.  At a Chicago Board of Education meeting, being held today, the students plan to voice their opinions. The school food revolution started in a nutrition class where the kids found out they were being fed mainly frozen and processed foods.

Some students were quoted as saying, “Nutrients are missing. Calories are high. Sugar is high.” And, “Parents rely on schools to give their children nutritious meals, not tan-colored slop.”

One teacher even has decided to eat the cafeteria food every day just to blog about it. On March 18th she blogged “I worry that kids are getting offered junk and convenience food because adults believe that that’s all they will eat for school lunch. Obviously, we want kids to eat, but should not cater to what a 7-year-old would theoretically prefer to eat.”

Here’s to hoping these kids get through to the adults in charge and can help make food in their school worth eating.
