TX Surveys School Lunches

Elementary schools in San Antonio, Texas, are taking pictures of what children eat for lunch.

A new project unveiled earlier this week at five elementary schools in San Antonio, Texas, is trying to figure out exactly what schoolchildren eat. The $2 million project, which is the first of its kind in the nation and is being funded by the US Department of Agriculture, will use high-tech cameras to photograph what children put on their trays, as well as what they leave behind. Digital imaging technology will then analyze the photos to see how many calories each child ate, down to a half-eaten pear. The goal of the research is to see not only what children are eating (and how much), but to get parents more involved in their children’s eating habits.
