I found this link while reading about the bumpy road Jamie Oliver is having getting his menus to succeed in British schools. It's not that the food is bad, (it's NOT) it's that the kids there have had nothing but bad choices for a long time. Once they have been on that path of a limited palate, it's hard to "change the courses," so to speak.
I applaud Oliver's efforts. It's not going to be easy. The key is that those efforts need to include the parents who need to change the menu at home, and probably younger kids, and the kids themselves. I hope they can make it work. I'd like a great example to hold up to our schools here in the States. If you are not familiar with Jamie Oliver's efforts, link here.
