In preparation for the government‘s new dietary rules for school lunches, vendors are trying to come up with new cafeteria choices that will meet both nutritional requirements and kids‘ approval.
Baked chicken nuggets and single-serve hummus may soon show up in lunch rooms across the nation. Taste-testing on school-age children has given the green light to whole-wheat pizza, but the breaded baked fish got a thumbs down. Vegetables are always the trickiest. As one 12-year old stated, his peers are "programmed to like fried stuff, so it‘s hard for them to change over."
Changing ones eating habits is not easy. Changing kids‘ eating habits is even tougher. One pediatric specialist is among those who think schools should eliminate the bad food choices altogether, leaving nothing but healthy options to choose from.
