I believe that children are overweight not because of what they eat but because of inactivity. If people will get out their old annuals from the 40s, 50s,60s and 70s, you will not see very many overweight children.
I attended Magnolia Elementary and High School. Mrs. Jessie Miller ran the lunchroom and boy did we have some good food. Here is what I can remember of the menu: pinto beans, cornbread, fruit cobblers, pimento cheese sandwiches, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, turnip greens, vegetable soup, homemade cake, fish.
