    what is next no meat allowed at school lunch because the next administration is a vegetarian? Or pork is banned because you next administration is Muslim which i can easily see happening very soon in the UK. your children will be required to wear burkas to school, but you will be alright with that because your been programmed to allow the state to make those decisions for you

    where do you draw the line?
    Oh no, you might not get to eat meat on certain days of the week! The horror!

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    It isn't because of the food.

    We were traveling a few weeks ago late at night, and lacking any other place to get food pulled into a Wendy's and got a couple burgers and fries. About 4 bites later both were in the trash by both of us. They might as well have been lard spread over white bread with a heavy layer of salt on it.

    My wife believes a main reason people are becoming so overweight is because their meals are so lacking in essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients a person's body needs. So in response the mind/body keeps desperately wanting a person to eat more, more, more - not for calories but desperately seeking those essential nutrients. Once a person's body's needs are met in those regards, the constant desire to eat will diminish. Yet before her I lived almost entirely on a junk food diet.
    That makes sense. We buy the majority of our meat from a friend of mine who has a local farm. Cows, pigs and chickens pasture fed with a bare minimum of antibiotics and no added hormones. It's a little more expensive but we end up eating less meat. We didn't try to, it just worked out that way. It's more satisfying. Tastes better too.

    wow you have a very limited knowledge of the UK.


    But back to school dinners you draw the line at healthy balanced dinners. Make sure the kids have a protein, veggies etc on their plate. Drinking water instead of soda, fruit instead of candy etc. Its ironic conservatives get angry about food stamps being spent on junk food but in the school sytems its fine. lol.

    It's not as healthy as the new one. The idea is to provide better nutrition.

    There was nothing wrong with the old menu, didn't need changing. No wonder the kids hate it.

    Well, I guess it depends on whether you want better nutrition for kids or not.
