Schools' Toughest Test: Cooking

Interesting story in today's NY Times about efforts to serve "real" food in New York City schools. And by "real," the article means food cooked from scratch, with fresh ingredients, and that doesn't rhyme with "ackaroni and ease" or "rench ries."

I wish we could do more of this in Ridgewood, but most of our schools don't have kitchens and all our lunches are provided by the Pomptonian Food Service. Our lunches are not terrible, but...I do believe there is MUCH that could be done to improve school lunches and I'm just sorry I don't have time to spend on this issue right now...still, wanted to share this article.
