It doesn't matter that Congress has declared pizza as a vegetable for school lunches, if it has two tablespoons of ketchup spread over a slice.
Obviously, ketchup is NOT a vegetable. It's a condiment that's high in sodium and the bulk of its calories come from sugar. There's no doubt that we all enjoy having it on our food, but this decision is still shocking and outrageous. It compromises the nutritional standards for our children and is a slap in the face for the fight against obesity.
As local business, what we can do is remind our customers and readers that it's ever more important to ensure that your own children are eating right, even if others who should, do not.
