Default U.S. schools adding fresh food without busting budgets

Working in a school I found this article so great. I think it's wonderful that schools are trying to bring in more fresh fruit and veggies!

I saw Jamie Olivers documentary on the lunch's kids end up eating. I hated school lunch even at the young age of 8 or 9 I remember thinking god this looks nasty, or wow that burger does not look edible. My parents own a deli, and so I always had a knowledge of food!

It's wonderful that schools are adding more fruits and vegetables, especially if they remove junk food and pop. Wouldn't it be great if the fruits and vegetables were organic? Even if they aren't, it's a step in the right direction.

I doubt the produce is organic. Schools are in a tough position since the budget is so strict; I think it averages between $1-2 per pupil, so it's hard to feed them healthy food but I'm glad they are doing it!

Default Celebrate Green Week with NBCUniversal

Educating the youth on the environmental issues that face us in this new age is one of the most important steps in fostering a greener community.

Right now, NBCUniversal is making a commitment to sustainability across the entire company. Their "Green is Universal" initiative is focused on bringing an environmental perspective to everything NBCUniversal does, informing and entertaining their audiences while driving more sustainable practices into their own operations.

Check out this video (courtesy of NBC4) about eco-friendly lessons for children.

I'm helping NBCUniversal spread the word about their "Green is Universal" campaign, so let me know if anyone has questions.
