Washington Post today presents a comprehensive look at progress made with school nutrition changes.

Of course, the interesting parts for me are the several references to parent groups' role in the issue. Article tries to make the case that parent groups and parents are part of the problem, whereas I submit that parent groups and parents are playing a rightful, common-sense role in making sure that new regulations (as they often do) don't go so far as to be crazy. A pizza party, cupcakes for a birthday, and popcorn for a movie night are not the problem.

We've actually had a good debate on this same topic over on the message boards, regarding one PTA's troubles with a Donuts for Dads event. Hope you'll jump in to the discussion.
