Then I read this article in Grist about just how well the kids in Berkeley are eating and what they are not eating. Do they eat a better diet and non-processed foods than other kids? Yes. But, even with all the advantages, frankly the kids still aren't eating as well as they could.
How can this be? I mean, school lunch is the evil cause in the media right now. Fix that, and we fix the problem, right?
Apparently not. Apparently there is a missing ingredient in this menu for change. It may be, just may be, that for kids' diets to change completely for the better, that change has to happen at home, too. And anywhere kids eat, really. Everywhere.
So, Edible Schoolyard, stay the course. I'm still envious. But here on the home front, I'm trying too. I'm trying really hard.
