Connor Kianpour of Great Falls writes about real world experiences in the school cafeteria and life in general.
In his first book, “Heavy: a recollection,” Great Falls author Connor Kianpour has written a lot about the role the school cafeteria played in his experience with weight gain and loss, but those experiences have nothing to do with school nutrition. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has made what the USDA is calling, “the first major changes in school meals in 15 years, . . . the new standards align school meals with the latest nutrition science and the real world circumstances of America’s schools.” Through his writing, Kianpour would like to promote a similar realignment in attitude toward the substance of a person despite what seems to be the real world’s preoccupation with image.
