    Really!! More healthy food for lunch? Hopefully the lunch program considers some area where children eat the only substantial meal they have all day at school and you want to limit their calorie intake?? My daughter is a teacher on the Turtle Mountain Reservation and she knows of many children that look forward to that meal because they are hungry. She teaches 2nd grade and knows about hungry, kids that need MORE not less. Your ideas might work for some schools and it is welcome but not for many...they don't need skim milk they need those fat calories. Have you ever seen a malnorished child in America??? They are here in this country and no only in Haiti..................
