Feed Me Better

Has anyone seen this? Ever since I watched "Supersize Me" and found out just how prevalent junk food was in schools, this issue has been top of mind. According to the documentary, junk food manufacturers SUBSIDIZE our nations school lunch programs to get their product to our kids. This is so wrong on so many levels.

I was poking around on the Internet, and visited Jamie Oliver's site and learned about a series he did in Britain called "Jamie's School Dinners." He started a movement there to get parent's involved in demanding better food for our kids in schools. It is called "Feed Me Better."

We need to get this movement started here in the states. Now. I am very disappointed in Food Network for not airing the series and spent over half an hour trying to find a way to email them to comment. They bury the contact links pretty well in the site, they did not used to do this. If you can find the contact link, send them an email and demand it. I used the email link for one of Jamie's other shows as the way in.

Let's get this started. Our children's future depends on it.
