Plate Waste: The Factors at Work

Plate Waste: The Factors at Work

The Pew has recently released an interesting discussion curated by The Kids' Safe & Healthful Food Project which talks to those in charge of food decisions in school districts nationwide in an effort to understand and ultimately reduce plate waste. While plate waste is one way to measure performance, the Q&A brings up many factors which can influence these measures. A few of these measures include shorter lunch periods, the idea that healthful foods take longer to eat and cut vs. whole fruit to make fruits and vegetable more accessible for children. A very thoughtful read!
