ABSTRACT
The author reflects on school nutrition in the U.S. He mentions Katie Wilson, the incoming president of the School Nutrition Association, and praises her for her passion for school foodservice and her willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve the goals she sees as vital to the success of school nutrition programs around the country. He claims that the issue of school nutrition is contentious. He argues that it affects more than cafeteria service in schools, because many schools' wellness policies also address food that is served in events.
