WHO REALLY DECIDES WHAT OUR CHILDREN ARE EATING FROM THE NATIONAL SCHOOL LUNCH PROGRAM?


OUTRAGE: WHO DECIDES WHAT OUR CHILDREN ARE EATING?

Who decides what our children are eating? To a large degree, it is the Federal Government. Congress and the Department of Agriculture approve what foods can (and can't) be served to over 30 million American school children who get daily meals from the National School Lunch Program

The government gets a ton of pressure from a food and beverage industry frantic to keep kids hooked on a diet of sodas, snacks and hot dogs. The competition, for a piece of this $10 billion market, is particularly fierce right now because this year, the School Lunch Program is being reviewed and revised.

Despite the enormous nutritional and financial stakes at play, ANP was the only media to cover a recent panel set up to discuss the school menu. While nutritionists out numbered the press, corporate lobbyists out numbered everyone.

Editor's note: Watch this video and see what really goes on behind the scenes of our children's Government School Lunch Program. You decide is this the healthy foods we expect our children to be served, I think not.
