America's children are plagued with behavior problems, learning problems and health problems. While there are many causes, none is more fundamental than the dreadful food they are eating; and few foods are worse than those being served in most school cafeterias.
Schools first began to provide food to children because so many of them were malnourished. What started out as a solution has become a major problem, and today many American children suffer from malnutrition, despite the fact that they have plenty to eat.
It's not just that Department of Agriculture regulations allow French fries to be considered a vegetable, or that milk is loaded with sugars, dyes and artificial flavoring. But much of what is being served isn't actually food. Take a look at the introductory slide show at www.School-Lunch.org to see what is really in that chemical stew.

For over 30 years the non-profit Feingold Association has shown people how food is linked to behavior, learning and health. What's more, when schools improve food, test scores go up, discipline problems go down and fewer children require special services, which can double the cost per child.
