John and Ali talk about a recent NY Times article on the latest school lunch controversy: In NYC a push for healthier meals has
gone overboard, say some critics, resulting in calorie counts lower than the
recommended daily allowance. In recent years, New York City government has
taken numerous steps to make public school lunches healthier, including
replacing fries with baked potato strips and introducing nonfat chocolate milk,
whole grain pasta, and salad bars. The Bloomberg administration acknowledges
they served children fewer calories than the number recommended by the United
States Department of Agriculture. Ali and John weigh in what kids really need.
