Actually, sweet potatoe pancakes sound good... prune burgers? For most kids, I don't think their digestion could take so much fiber in one meal.. my son likes prunes though, so, some kids might like them.. mixed with beef? Hmmm.. that sounds gross to me.
I hope they don't rely too heavily, as insinuated in the article, on kid's tastebuds.. many of which have been tainted by overly sweet sodas and too sweet beverages like KoolAid and overly processed foods. They need nutrition and sounds like this could help the kids as well as the crop growers.. and if I had to endure mystery meat oozing with orange grease... getting more veggies in their diet may do them a world of good, nutritionally.
Personally, I'd like to see less meat and high fat crap in school lunches and healthier choices for kids anyway. I suppose my son will be brown bagging it until they figure things out in his school.. last time I checked a menu (online a month or so ago), it didn't look that different than when I was in school and I remember the crap they fed us then... course that was also the time that.. Reagan, I think it was, declared ketchup was a vegetable... ~*~sigh~*~
