"There's No Such Thing as a Free Lunch" - A presentation by John Cadman

  • Dipublikasikan tanggal 19 Des 2012
  • What really are the true costs of the National School Lunch Program? John sheds some light on this and the challenges in trying to mass feed 30 million school children daily in this country. Learn why this is the most popular yet flawed social welfare program in our nation's history, acting as both a public feeding program and a disposal service for surplus USDA commodities. Therein lies the key to the nation's obesity problem because the USDA calls the shots but almost exclusively supports the production of animal and processed foods, which then show up in the school lunch program. John has found a way to meet USDA guidelines and still provide vegetaian options for students.

    John Cadman is currently the Food Service Director for Kamehameha Schools Maui Campus. He served for 15 years as a Food Service Manager in both elementary and high school settings and the only one in Hawaii offering an optional vegetarian menu. He has six boys of his own, so feeding children is one thing he knows a lot about.

    Around 3:00, and 3:58, the word that sounds like "cakey" is actually "keiki," which is the Hawaiian word for "baby."

    850 calories for 1 meal is plenty! Esp based on a 2000 calorie diet, that's more than the 1/3 the guidelines set! Those high school kids have never experienced hunger, they want to make political hay bcuz the 1st lady is trying to give them guidance, but they'd rather bask in american excess, then wonder why their health is poor. Get fat & die!

    what occurs in anyone stems from ignorance, inexperience, the systems we believe, & the fear of change.

    If you can get your B12 levels normal, and monitor them with blood tests, great. But pretty much all of the vegan MDs and RDs recommend taking B12 supplements.

    Nope, sorry but B12 deficiency is an almost exclusively vegan problem. Just look at the results of the EPIC Oxford Study. 52% of vegans, 7% of vegetarians, only one omnivore were B12 deficient:
    "Serum concentrations of vitamin B12 and folate in British male omnivores, vegetarians and vegans: results from a cross-sectional analysis of the EPIC-Oxford cohort study."

    Pacholok and Stuart state vegans are at greater risk for B12 deficiency in their book. They also believe that there are many cases of B12 deficiency that are misdiagnosed as other illnesses. These statements are not contradictory.

    Check out the Wikipedia article on B12, the original treatment for B12 deficiency was to consume large amounts of raw liver. Later B12 was isolated from liver juice and eventually we learned to produce it in other ways.

    Good presentation and a lot of good points made. Some of his dishes which he showed throughout the presentation looked really tasty and the high school kids who spoke seemed nice and I wish them much success after high school.

    Looks like they eat a lot better in France and have vegetarian options.

    Perhaps you should watch more of this video because that is precisely his point. The peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were held up as bad, not good, examples.
