5 billion lunches are served annually through the National School Lunch Program.

In this podcast we touch on the quality of food that your kids are actually eating at school, the macros in the food, and the terrifying statistics that follow when digested.

Obesity rates have tripled since 1980. Something needs to be done. At the current rate, 40% of girls in elementary school right now will one day be diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. About 3 out of every 4 students is either overweight or obese right now and they will retain that weight as they get older.

In addition, students who eat school lunch are more than 4 times likely to obtain significantly less information than their healthy lunch brining counterparts. They are less likely to want to do physical activity. And they downright just don’t have the same brain development as kids who are eating healthy.

I’m personally sickened by this. I’m hoping this podcast will help educate many and scare them just enough to do something at your next school meeting or force parents to help meal prep for their kids.

YOU are helping create your children’s future by the food you feed them everyday.
