Generation XL: Nutrition Across the School Day

America’s schools serve 15 million free lunches and 3 million reduced price lunches. Some students might eat up to ten meals at school each week, and for many students, school breakfast and lunch are the only meals they eat in a day.

When students are properly nourished, they perform better academically, miss fewer days of school and are better behaved. On the next episode of Generation XL, KCPT talks to caregivers, educators, cafeteria staff and administrators about the pivotal role they play in advocating for healthier food served at schools.

Watch Thursday, January 12, 2012 at 8pm and 10:30pm.
