School Lunch: Taking a Cue From (Improving) Cafeterias

School Lunch: Taking a Cue From (Improving) Cafeterias

Even without a TV in our household, we've managed to pick up on the fact that these days, getting healthy and natural foods to kids is at the top of many priority lists. It begins at the very top, with First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move campaign, and has been getting help along the way from folks like Jamie Oliver, Rachel Ray, and even Food, Inc.

We love seeing improvement in schools, not just for the kids, but for the overall health of the community. In fact, it's inspired us to pack even healthier lunches for work—and not just for our own health and eco-impact, but also to encourage our coworkers to do the same. (Personally, we'd love to see everyone ditch their frozen dinners for some fresh local fare!)

So far, a few folks have noticed our redoubled healthy food efforts. Not to mention, we're hearing more and more people talk about these celebrity chefs and the good they're doing for communities.

We're wondering: have you been seeing the same?
