STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Los Angeles County Unified School District’s lunch menu is undergoing a makeover.

David Binkle, the district’s Deputy Director of Food Services and chef by trade and Chef Mark Baida, visited KCAL 9 on Wednesday afternoon to talk about the new “I’m In” healthy school menu.

The campaign is aimed at fighting childhood obesity. The district will be releasing a new menu, as well as a wellness plan, to help students live healthier lifestyles.

The program also encourages attendance and staying in school.

    Smoke and mirrors. The district fought so hard against Jamie Oliver and stated that changing the menu would cost unbudgeted millions. So we are to believe the menu and nutritional direction of LAUSD has suddenly done a 180 ? I don’t think so. After this school year, “I’m In” will either fade away or be reffered to as a failed experiment. We should just stop spending taxpayer money for ANY subsidised school food and force the parents into taking care of their own kids.

    Let’s make sure the anchor baby’s are fed well so the parents will have more money from there welfare checks for crack.

    We have to nourish our future criminals.
