At Logic we are always on the lookout for interesting grass-fed beef related news, this particular report makes us extremely (you guessed it) HAPPY! Finally, even schools are realizing the importance of utilizing grass-fed beef in children’s meals. If schools (who have very strict budgets to adhere to) can see the sense in paying a little more, for something far healthier and beneficial, maybe the rest of America will follow suit.
The South Routt school district in Colorado is a rural district with over 400 students attending the three local schools there. It is now among a growing number of Colorado districts where local, grass-fed beef is now on the school lunch menu. Although there’s no exact number of school districts that use local beef in their cafeterias, the number is clearly increasing, with an estimated dozen schools using grass-fed beef for school meals.
It’s unclear whether the discovery last spring that some school ground beef contained ground-up meat scraps treated with ammonium hydroxide has prompted districts to join the grass-fed beef movement. Regardless of the cause for this change, it is certainly a welcome one.
Switching to grass-fed beef doesn’t come without challenges for school food service departments; however, the health benefits for the children are so great, it is clearly a challenge worth taking up.
Here’s how we see it: When it comes to grass-fed beef, we know that the most off-putting part of it is the price- the fact that it costs more than other beef. However, we at Logic feel that people often forget how much money they spend on junk foods and unnecessary other luxuries, without even thinking twice. If we know that something is that much better for us, compared to something else, then shouldn’t we be willing to pay a small premium for this? We at Logic value our health more than anything, so for us, it’s a no-brainer. Why is it that we don’t seem to mind spending money on over-priced holidays, cars, shoes, clothes, nights out and junk food??? Why not spend that little extra on grass-fed beef, since we know that it can improve our health in so many different ways. If the schools can do we, shouldn’t we- seems pretty logical to us.
