What are we feeding our children?

There is a new show ABC has now called "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution." And just watching the first episode blew me away. I am sure as Americans we understand that we do not eat the way we should. In this show Jamie goes to the unhealthiest city in America to try and get them to revolutionize the way they eat and he is going after schools. Just seeing what these kids eat every day at school blows me away!!! I know health care is on the minds of everyone right now, but what about school lunches? In the show the kids had pizza, fruit and chocolate or strawberry milk for breakfast and chicken nuggets and mashed potatoes made out of "mashed potato pearls" for lunch. Health care wouldn't be a big issue if we were feeding our bodies with healthy foods instead of junk. I am literally in shock of it all still and it makes me not want to ever let my child eat a school lunch. I can't wait to see what the rest of this season is going to bring. I just really hope that this show will inspire DC to make this a priority for our children as well.
