<<If a school is going to provide food, it should do so with it's primary mission, educating children, in mind. Providing food that reduces the brain's ability to retain information both immediately due to post-prandial shunt and over the long run due to a lack of nutrients is not in keeping with a school's mission. This is not up for opinion. There is a mountain of evidence supporting the link between nutrients and learning. This is not about wanting to control people, or being a nanny state, but rather about working to fulfill the primary mission of a school in all functions of the school.


I don't see the connection between your post above and the current policies of feeding the garbage cans in school cafeterias with nutritious food.
