As if school lunches weren't already looking bleak, Congress is taking it to another level.
"A new Congressional bill that looks likely to pass quickly will slow down reductions in sodium by requiring further study on long-term requirements, block whole grains by haggling over the definition, and help pizza stay on the menu by allowing two tablespoons of tomato paste on pizza to keep counting as a vegetable."
"They are making sure that two of the biggest problems in the school lunch program, pizza and french fries, are untouched."

How do you guys feel about school lunches? Do you think pizza and french fries should count as vegetables for our children?
