I don't think kids think about healthy or unhealthy.
The either like the taste or not.
If the kids are rejecting the food it is because of the taste and not because it is healthy.
The schools have to try harder to serve food that is healthy and tastes good.
I still remember pizza day. I had to go to school that day.
Just reading in another thread about a recent executive order banning the importation of some specific firearms that had been legal to bring in last week. Have no fear, the obesity and school lunch choice will soon be resolved. As soon as the government locks down health care, we will all be told what we can eat, how much of it, where we have to purchase it and from whom. After all, what we choose to do will them be directly tied to government funding. And as we all know when it comes to spending money government knows best. I see a day when there are SWAT raids against those who dare to grow their own tomatoes, and since we will all be disarmed there will not be a damned thng we can do about it.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
Maybe you missed the stories covering Chicago schools down right denying students to bring their lunches from home.
Chicago school bans homemade lunches, the latest in national food fight
I don't know about you, but I find that rather over the top when a parent can no longer decide what their child will eat for lunch.
So yes I am very happy to see some school districts tell Michelle Obama to take her health food crusade and stick it. The same Michelle that serves Sweet Potato Pie, fine wines at every White House function, Kobe beef for their guests, extravagant desserts that most salivate over that would never meet her hypocritical agenda of what she calls "healthy". Cheers!.
The big food corporation of course know this and will try anything they can to get kids used to sugar and salt. By ads and putting a lot of it in products targeted for kids.
This is of course a problem for schools. If they provide food without a lot of sugar and salt the kids used to sugar and salt will probably think it taste like crap. The other option is putting a lot of sugar and salt in the food and that's not healthy at all. Also the kids not used to alot of sugar and salt will maybee first think it almost discustingly sweet and salty. But probably soon adapt and also only want to eat food with alot of sugar and salt. That you can easily get used to eating a lot of sugar and salt, but of course also get used to not eat, but it takes a lot more time and effort escecially if it easily available.
In the future, we will all look like the folks from Wall-E.
