Back in the Dark Ages, during the Spanish Inquisition, (¿Puedo pedir prestado su lápiz, el lápiz azul?) I noticed that my fellow students always threw away their vegetables. Of course, they were cooked into mush and tasteless. But I often wondered why they tried to get us to eat stuff that obviously nobody wanted. They even examined the trash and noted that nobody ate broccoli that had been steamed to death. But they persisted. This was in the 1960’s and the schools were beginning to augment their income with vending machines. Most children noshed on chips and cookies and stopped eating the carefully balanced meals altogether.

You know what, we had a apple vending machine in our school when I was a kid. I am 52 so would be in the 70s. There was no such thing as junk food or soda machine. I know today things are different.

I also know parents who still make lunches for their kids today. Today our lives are so harried. I am so glad I grew up when I did.
