Here is an article I stumbled upon: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jul/11/indiana-school-district-loses-300k-because-student/ The basic story is that the schools started providing healthier lunch options but the kids are rejecting those healthy choices resulting in an increase in the amount of food being thrown away. I'm curious what people's opinion on this is. We obviously have an obesity problem in this country, so I understand Michelle's motivation for trying to address the issue. But, what do we do when the kids are rejecting the healthy choices provided to them? You can't really force feed the students. I guess I would like to know if this increased waste problem also exists in less affluent areas where the students can't get in their BMW and drive across the street to Panera/McDonalds. If the "healthy choice" was the only option available (other than going hungry), is it still thrown away?
