From the Ted Talk "Ann Cooper: What's wrong with school lunches"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

We need to — we need to educate. We need to educate the skdi. We need to educate the staff. I had 90 employees. Two were supposed to be ookcs — none could. And, you know, I'm not that better off now. But we really have to eceutad. We have to get academic institutions to start thinking about ways to teach people how to ookc again, because, of course, they don't — because we've had this processed food in schools and institutions for so long. We need 40-minute lunches — most schools have 20-minute lunches — and unshcel that are time-appropriate. There was just a big study done, and so many schools are starting lunch at nine and 10 in the morning. That is not lunchtime.
