  • Andrew Martinek,

    Actually the article I was reading about junk food and how the students won't eat other healthier stuff was mentioning that the lunch preparers were experimenting with making the "junk food", stuff like pizza, nachos, burgers, healthier, by using lower fat meats and cheeses & such. I think that's a good idea.
