Today on Your Call: Are school lunches getting healthier?



On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about what kids are eating in school. With 31 million children participating in the National School Lunch program, advocates across the country are working to get healthier food in the cafeteria and many innovative school garden and lunch programs originated in Northern California. So what makes a healthy school lunch program?  Join us at 10am Pacific or post a comment here. And once schools serve healthy food, how do they get kids to eat it?  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
