Radio Archive: School Lunch Nutrition
This show originally aired on November 12, 2011
This was one of the first shows I did as part of The Wake Up Call was way back in November of 2011. I was joined by the Director of Student Nutrition Services for Hopkins Public Schools, Barb Mechura and her husband Kim to talk about the importance of healthy eating and activity is for our kids and how Hopkins Schools have made changes in their school meals program to meet those needs. We also talked about some of the challenges facing the schools and touched on how kids really will eat more vegetables if you give them the chance.
