The city’s health department hit the pause button after a study found that the Breakfast in the Classroom program, now used in 381 of the city’s 1,750 schools, was problematic because some children might be “inadvertently taking in excess calories by eating in multiple locations” — in other words, having a meal at home, or snacking on the way to school, then eating again in school.
That’s pretty ridiculous, I think. Maybe we should be concerned about what they’re eating, not whether or not the kiddies are ‘double dipping’. These pictures are pretty appalling. Where were the artichokes, fish, and rice in my school lunch?
