Baby 'Carrots'

Are these baby "carrots" typical of school cafeteria fare?

My granddaughter gets these little bags of carrots in her school cafeteria and brings them home in her book bag. She tells me that they don't taste very good. I didn't try them. I can report, however, that the  puppy loves them!

Contrast the baby "carrots" with these beauties grown organically on Metzger Heritage Farm.

How can local farmers get their wholesome produce into the hands and mouths of local school children?

I would hope there is a dialogue going on between the school administrators, parents and cafeteria managers that would provide for the use of local produce in the school. These prepackaged convenience foods masquerading as nutritious choices must stop.
