OK, the audio is a little off and the footage is a little grainy, but the message that these third-graders from Henry Hudson Elementary School in Rochester, N.Y., are trying to convey comes through loud and clear. It leaves me equal parts impressed with their attention to detail and disgusted with the waste created by the horrible foods provided at school. I mean really, what's the point of skimping on the budget if you wind up feeding kids food that is basically inedible?
Hats off to these kids for taking such an in-depth look at the school lunches — and talking with folks from all sides of the issue. I hope this video makes its way to the decision makers at their school. After all, is healthy food too much to ask for?
