Chicago School Workers Survey: Kids Not Eating Healthy New Options

Most children are not eating the healthful new foods introduced into Chicago Public School cafeterias, according to a survey of 436 of the system's foodservice workers, reports the Chicago Tribune. The workers are calling for a number of changes to the city's school meal program, including adding collective bargaining language that protects workers' right to talk about the food to parents and children, building working kitchens in all new schools and ceasing the replacement of fresh food with frozen or preprepared alternatives.
