Follow-up Information from March 8 Book Discussion

At the first book discussion last week at Barnes & Noble, two topics from the news came up, and participants who hadn't heard about these things wanted a little more information.

The first was pink slime hamburger meat, currently being discussed with regard to school lunches. I found this blog post that talks about the issue AND provides valuable links to additional information: http://bit.ly/zc1EJc

The other topic we discussed briefly was an article a couple of participants had read online about a school child's home packed lunch (turkey & cheese sandwich, banana, chips, apple juice) being confiscated, and the child being given a school lunch (chicken nuggets) instead, because some monitor deemed her lunch was not nutritionally sound. Here is that article, from the Carolina Journal.

I hope this additional information will be useful to the great ladies at last week's discussion!
