Menu of carbs won't help kids

June 26, 2008

Re "He's a tall-order chef," June 22

If the Los Angeles Unified School District thinks that macaroni and cheese, enchiladas and lasagna constitute healthy food, then its "meals" will only contribute to an already admitted epidemic of obesity in young adults.

Feeding kids a meal consisting of 70% to 80% carbohydrates is not the answer to rising obesity. It's more junk food.
