School Systems Struggle With Lunchroom Costs

wouldn't sell them." Because of the size of the school district, she said, the companies complied.

All the meal changes occurred under the noses of the kids, who apparently were none the wiser.

"No, I don't tell them. Why would I? And they don't notice," Chong said, laughing. "We haven't advertised it -- because if they knew it was better for them, they wouldn't eat it."

And that's a problem for the future, she said. Kids aren't learning how to eat healthy at home so schools are feeling pressure to step up and teach them about nutrition -- if only the funding were there.

"It's part of the educational process to teach these kids about healthy eating, which is the weakest link because we don't have the funding or the staff for nutrition education," Chong said. "The concern about obesity is not within a majority of the parents. It's a concern with community leaders and health experts. If it were a parental concern, you'd see parents practicing better nutrition within their own households."
