Did anyone else know that pizza sauce can be considered a vegetable in a school lunch, if there’s more than ½ cup of it?
Since pizza slices don’t have ½ cup of sauce, some companies that supply the pizzas are lobbying Congress to make any amount count. They have support from some conservatives, who don’t feel that the government has any business dictating what students eat for lunch.
We don’t want the Federal government interfering with those federally-subsidized lunches, do we?
(I wouldn’t put it past those same naysayers to represent the people who grow up and sue the government because they got health problems from eating school lunches consisting of pizza, burgers and fries.)
My head is spinning. Maybe I’ll go grab some pizza—that nutritional sauce may help clear it.
