Childhood obesity and school lunch... What's your take?
There is an alarming prevalence of obese children in the U.S. We often hear the school lunch program is to blame... but is school lunch really the culprit?
If a child attends school 180 days a year and eats school lunch each of those days, this would equal 16% of the child's total meals for the year. Assuming a child eats 3 meals a day (180 meals divided by 1095 total meals for a year = 16%).
What's your take? What do you think is the cause of today's childhood obesity epidemic?
E-mail your responses to Christine (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will post them in our upcoming newsletter.
Thanks for your efforts!
