Bringing food quality to the tables of the school canteen and respecting the environment, raise awareness among students and their families on issues of healthy eating, support to rural and small producers, and do all this in a coordinated manner are the objectives main.  

In this way, Catalonia has been incorporating organic food in school canteens. Moreover, this involves an educational purpose: the children learn a model of healthy food and supporting local producers.

"Banning transgenic crops and foods is paramount and essential to ensure healthy eating in schools and our homes," said from the Bureau, which has been presented publicly as part of April and passed for Food Sovereignty.

What an inspiring article!!! I don't have any kids yet, but when I do I have thought a lot about home schooling, and one of the biggest reasons for this is that I don't want my children to be eating a bunch of crap (the way I did!!!) in school cafeterias! It is absolutely infuriating that children are nearly force-fed some of the least nutritionally valuable food around!

One of the best things that the humanity could do is changing the way of education to teach the children to protect the environment and enjoy a healthy diet and lifestyle. Children is the future of all the mankind and if we make them consciousness, we can make the difference.
