A "Healthy" Problem

Kids don't like their government mandated daily sustenance intake. Ha. Let's see, when you make food low fat, you have to increase something else to retain flavor. Usually that is salt and sugar. But now, the government is determined that salt and sugar are also bad for you, and so subsequently removed from government school lunches.

So what is left for flavor?

Nothin. From [a href=",0,6830768.story"] You can lead a kid to broccoli but you can't make him eat [/a]

"They want us to eat healthy food, but the food has no flavor," sophomore Jacob Hernandez said as he picked at unsalted rice and beans at North-Grand High School. "Last year, they had a yellow Puerto Rican rice. But this year it's all dry, and you can tell they put a lot of stuff in there, but what's the point if there is no flavor?"

I have had my concerns that children are not developing palates in the culinary sense, it seems they do have a little bit left. But for how long?
