And When They Get Home

When they get home, their moms will fill them up with chips and "lil" hugs. If you offer them fresh fruit and vegetables in school, they go right to the vending machines and get chips. Visit a school cafeteria one days and see how well they do with fresh fruit and vegetables. The good stuff goes right to the trash cans. Fix the home, fix the problem.
