One elementary school in Chicago is taking the concept of healthy school lunches to the next level. The principal has banned students from bringing their own lunches.
The school believes that this policy will help curb the childhood obesity epidemic, and even if they are right there is the issue of individual rights. Many of the parents feel this is big government run wild.
I have to side with the parents on this one. Even as a real food advocate and passionate nutrition educator, this just doesn't seem like the way. Education and inspiration will do far more to help parents make healthier choices in the long run.
