The Weight of the Nation: School Lunches
America’s Ever-Increasing Waistline
94 Percent of Schools Violate USDA Regulations
Ninety-nine percent of all U.S. public schools participate in the National School Lunch program.
In the United States, food consumed at schools represents 40 percent to 50 percent of most children’s daily caloric intake.
An Agriculture Department survey indicated that 90 percent of parents foolishly believed that the food at their children’s school was healthy. That could not be further from the truth.
