We Need A School Food Revolution!

By Chantal Kwade

There needs to be a food revolution in K-12 public schools.  The effects of children not having a healthy diet can take a toll on the body, leading to obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and more.  Healthier kids learn and function better in school.  If children are exposed to fresh healthy produce at an early age, they will learn to love it as they grow.  When students go away for college, they will know what’s best for their bodies, and they will enjoy more healthy food.  Even though kids need a healthier alternative for lunch, the cost of healthy food is expensive.  Despite the cost, it is better to have quality food in our system then foods that make us sick.
