School lunch portions

August 5, 2011
Marshall Independent

To the editor:

At many levels and in many places, budgets are being cut and ways to reduce debts are being explored.

A recent public school report in the Independent noted that government regulations will increase the serving size of fruits and vegetables to one cup each. Is this wise or will it lead to more wasting of food and money?

The present policy of providing measured portions of food, regardless of what a student consumes, has already resulted in a sad picture as quantities of food become garbage in many school lunch rooms.

Children and adults are involved in wasteful practices, by requirement.

Nutritious items are prevalent in today's school lunch menus. Hopefully, the current serving sizes wil be reviewed so both money and food are used wisely and with appreciation.
