I always enjoy going out on stories, but this one was really cool.
Can you imagine getting the chance to pick out the foods your school cafeteria would serve?
Shelby County School kids got that chance. I walked in and was instantly a kid again. It was like a giant buffet, and it all looked amazing.
There was pizza, chicken sandwich patties, chicken nuggets, you know, all the items you’d expect in the lunch line, but with a healthy twist. Most everything was whole grain and reduced fat. With at least 50 vendors representing food distributors from across the country, the gymnasium was packed with kids, teachers and FOOD. As a food lover it was great to see the kids so thrilled over fruit cocktail without syrup. They let me try it, and it was wonderful. What a smart way to get kids excited to eat healthy food. A+ idea!
