Chicago schools CEO finds fault with school breakfast menu

June 3, 2011
Many parents have objected to the nutritional quality of the food provided to children

From The Chicago Tribune: The Breakfast in the Classroom program in Chicago's public schools has found a new critic: District CEO Jean-Claude Brizard, who has questioned some menu items and directed staff to remove syrup and sweets next year. As the new district administration evaluates health and wellness initiatives, parents continue to line up against the program, citing food allergies, waste, obesity and lost class time. Parents also said their wishes to opt kids out were not being honored.
