In Texas schools, a picture's worth 1,000 calories

An elementary school in San Antonio is beginning a program of taking before and after photos of students lunch trays to determine what students are actually ingesting. The photos are supposed to be accurate enough to allow calculation of calories consumed. Each student's parents must consent before that child may participate in the program.

Progress? Insanity? Let's hear it.
