I'm passionate about driving for change on the plate, accompanied with getting kids more active. I would like to encourage you to go to lunch at your children's schools and SEE for yourselves what's really on their plates and if it doesn't meet your standards, tell someone... teachers, staff, principal, superintendent, school board - all of the above. E-mail and ask what their plans are for the future to comply with the new coming standards. If you like what's on the plate, say that too! Send a note of appreciation to those involved.
