What is this going to change?
We all know that school food is ridiculously unhealthy. Even before Jamie Oliver started his campaign. School lunches go out to the lowest bidder and as a result kids usually end up eating processed and reconstituted garbage.
But what is photographing what kids eat and don't eat going to change? Are they actually going to keep tabs on what each individual student (in a school of likely hundreds), and then force each child to correct their diet? That would take untold man-hours, and the cost would be enormous.
Why can't the school just reinvest that money into providing healthier foods?
None of this adds up.

Exactley, alsi, this is a relatively poorer area, alot of these students are on foodstamps this is an assumed fact, having lived in the school district, and knowing the area.. Could this be the "proof" they need to restrict foodstamps to only "healthy" foods?
