School Lunches

How sad is it that there is a real food fight going on between Congress and the Obama administration on what to feed our kids in school.   The debate is around the free lunch program and what counts as a vegetable.  It seems Congress has sided with ConAgra foods in deeming pizza sauce a vegetable.  OMG! This is how bad it is getting.   Our politicians are so bought out that they have to agree that tomato paste should count as a vegetable.   One of their arguments (which is sadly valid) is that kids just throw away the other vegetables so pizza is all they will eat.  What chance does this country really have to fight the diabetes and obesity epidemic when we are down to one food group and that is crappy pizza?  And last I remember the tomato was actually a fruit!!!
