Weekend Reading


Our district's resident food services consultant and lunch reformer, Julia van Loon, send in this link for the Top 10 Food Additives to Avoid. Better yet, she's actually helping our school's lunch avoid them!

La Vida Locavore is following the ugly politics behind the fight to get the Child Nutrition Act passed and with it better nutritional standards and more money for the national school lunch children which feeds 30 million kids a day. You can read this post but check the whole blog for updates by the time you get this.

Bittman's blog also covers the debate arguing we should tax soda rather than cut food stamps of all tings to pay for school lunch.

School lunch can be fixed - not just in Berkeley or Sea Cliff. Its vastly better in DC this year  thanks in part to legislation passed last year and now under attack and now thanks to Ann Cooper's lastest job - Boulder, CO.  It seems mainly to be about a desire to change on the part of the community and a lot of hard work by the folks running your lunch program.


Food Network and other cooking show devotees might want to see The Kings of Pastry at the Cinema Arts Theater in Huntington this weekend.

Are Cows the New Nukes? If you prefer to watch Mark Bittman rather than read his blog, click here.  He also covers his three basic rules of eating.


The Sea Cliff School has its craft fair is Saturday from 10-2.
