A big facet of the current debate over healthier school nutriton standards is whether kids are actually rejecting the new meals on a widespread basis. Just yesterday, as a matter of fact, I got into a Twitter debate with someone on this key question, with each of us offering conflicting data on school meal participation before and after the implementation of the new school food law.

My main takeaway: we clearly need to be outsourcing our school food to Kenya.
