Coffee Club: School Lunch Overhaul

School lunches are getting a makeover. But do you think schools should carry the responsibility of kids' nutrition?
Tuesday, Michelle Obama is hosting a discussion on school nutrition.

Mrs. Obama has been a champion for healthier options in school cafeterias.

Starting next year, stricter rules go into effect, requiring schools to serve students one fruit or vegetable, reduce sodium and serve more whole grains.

Last week, a house subcommittee moved to waive the rule, saying some schools are having trouble meeting the new expectations and there are concerns that a lot of produce will end up in the trash.

Do you think the school plays a role in your child's nutrition? Or should the responsibility fall completely on the parent?
