There is a lot of talk today about school food and healthy eating for young people. Some of you may even be familiar with Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution currently underway in some American schools. There is merit in this discussion, and parents who care about the subject have a wealth of practical information within their grasp, most of it just a click away, many among these embedded links.
Developing a philosophy of healthy eating is consistent with the well-rounded nature of any good school, and for those of us who view eating as more than a necessary, utilitarian exercise, who view what these boys participate in during the school week from 11:45-12:15 as sacramental in nature, we need to pay attention to what these guys regard as food just as much as we exercise vigilance over the rest of their lives.
Parents are welcome to drop by the Campus Center Dining Hall some time in the fall and verify if Junior is, indeed, eating healthily.
