Really?? They needed a study to prove this?? Well, at least now anyone who doubted schools need to step in when parents drop the ball on nutrition can be corrected.
I was lucky and had a mom who packed me a turkey sandwich, a juice box (100% juice, of course), an apple and a pudding cup every day from 1st grade up to my senior year (I realize that’s slightly pathetic on my part, but I tell myself that it made her happy to do it).
Other kids are left with what the schools provide so unless we want an even more obese nation than we have now we better support schools in providing more healthy fare.
