School Nutrition Association President: Garbage Cans Full of Fruits, Vegetables

Tuesday on CNN, School Nutrition Association President Julia Bauscher explained to host Carol Costello that high school students simply take the required fruit or vegetable portion of the first lady’s mandated school lunch program and throw them out.

Bauscher said to a frustrated Costello that her while association supports providing healthier food options for children, the mandates in the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act are causing a large amount of waste by forcing especially high school kids to take what they don’t want. In a natural childhood backlash to authority mass numbers of kids are simply walking a few steps to the garbage cans and throwing out the fruit.
