Pizza Squares Again?

Remember school lunches? Yeah, the thought still curdles my stomach. But surely, in these food-enlightened times, they’ve gotten a lot better. ... Apparently not. Check out Fed Up With School Lunch. It’s a daily blog set up by an anonymous elementary school teacher. She’s made a pledge to eat lunch every weekday for an entire year in her school’s cafeteria. So far, the data she’s collected is not encouraging. She’s no nutritionist or anything, but it doesn’t take much training to evaluate the lame lunches to which she’s subjected herself. To help break up the monotony, guest columnists occasionally contribute school food info from around the world. (Check out the awesome lunches kids in Japan get!) Definitely food for thought.
