  • "Due to lean budgets and time restraints, teachers may find it difficult to fit nutrition into lesson plans."

    Or, the schools can teach readin', 'riten, and 'rithmetic. They could teach spelling and composition. Since I have no kids, I haven't kept up with what teachers teach -- do kids still learn to diagram sentences? Teachers could teach chemistry, physics, history (American and world), civics and a host of other real subjects that are important. When I was in school, all I was interested in at lunch was getting full.

  • I contend that most minors and college students are going to follow the eating habits of their peers and family--ignoring general nutrition lectures.
