School nutrition has come a long way in recent decades and U.S.-grown rice plays an important part because it’s affordable, nutritious, and widely accepted. Two members of USA Rice’s K-12 Chef Advisory Board, Chef Jason Hull and RDN Bettina Applewhite, join the podcast to talk about feeding kids and instilling positive dietary habits with rice. Michael and Lesley reminisce about their school days, compare notes, and discuss the merits of ketchup as a vegetable. On Wednesdays, they wear pink.
