retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The New York Times reports on a Nickelodeon special focusing on the 10 things kids hate about school.

Number three: the food they serve there.

(Number one is “boring classes.”)

Interestingly, what kids told Nickelodeon’s Linda Ellerbee is that what they hate about school food is that it isn’t good and isn’t good for them.
KC's View:
As we’ve said before, the whole issue about what kids eat in school ought to be one with which supermarkets get involved. It seems to make good business sense, and could have long-term implications for business.

What’s fascinating about this story is that it contradicts the notion that kids just want to eat junk and fried food. Maybe we’ve underestimated the little devils.
