Kids Don’t Eat Vegetables, School Considers Surveillance Cameras

Students across the Nation have resisted new school lunch policies largely influenced by first lady Michelle Obama. A school system in Florida thinks they may have a solution to the problem: surveillance cameras.

New Federal law requires that students eat healthy produce at lunchtime. But students in Lake County Florida are refusing to eat the new and improved lunches that are offered. So school board officials are considering installing cameras in the trash cans to keep an eye on how many veggies are being thrown out.

“It’s a big issue, and it’s very hard to get our hands around it,” Todd Howard, the school board member who suggested the idea, told Local 6 in Orlando. “They have to take it, and then it ends up in the trash can, and that’s a waste of taxpayer money. It’s also not giving students the nutrition that they need.”

Parent Laurel Walsh thinks it’s the parents’ job to get kids to eat their veggies — not the government’s.

“I think it starts at home with the parents. If the kids just don’t like it because they’ve never been given it at home, they’re not going to try something new here,” she said.

School board members have said that if the cameras are installed, the faces of the students will not be seen. Only the food being thrown away will be recorded.
