Has anyone heard about the new bill to make pizza a vegtable in school lunches?
Yeah, Im not making this up.
According to a new FEDRAL bill, if it passes, pizza will be classified as a vegtable if it contains 2 TABLESPOONS of tomato paste.
To give you an idea, the average pizza uses about 1/8 - 1/4 of a cup of sauce.
This would allow ANY pizza (As long as it is not oil or white sauce) to be classified as a vegtable. This is absurd!! The even SADDER part is that
even though this bill says pizza can be a vegtable, it ALSO says some REALLY GOOD stuff about school lunches, such as limiting sodium and potato use
So, does the good override the bad? I dont think so!!
Childhood obeisity is a growing epidemic in the USA, and dispite efforts, it is just getting worse. A major culprit of this is factory foods, such as
frozen meals, snack chips, sodas, and other junk food. This rise in fat kids is leading to children in fourth grade having heart attacks. FOURTH
GRADE!!! (Im not saying I was skinny in fourth grade, actually I was quite fat untill I entered middle school where I realized that I could not have a
life with obeseity.) but fat enough to have a heart attack? Really? This is stupid!!! This just proves that the government does not give a rats behind
quarters about what we do or say, they just care about the money.
I would urge you to take action, but I might me stepping over T & C boundries. *Scowl*
