Elizabeth Chaffon's insight:

This addresses the issue that schools and cafeterias are not serving heathly options for children and students but need to be.  The importance of children being given healthy options is very important because they may not be able to learn about nutrition from their parents.  If  role models or guardians of children don't show or teach children the importance of nutrition this can set them up for failure later on in life.
