    It's not the only problem, but it certainly helps for the kids to be eating a healthier diet. I don't know about you, but if I eat healthier it makes me more likely to have the energy to be more active.

    But let the parents make that decision, Government should not be deciding what I do or do not get to eat.

    The parents can make that decision. They can pack a lunch for their kid.

    You are missing the point.

    What's the point? The government shouldn't change a government program to provide healthier food?

    The government shouldn't take away the food without thinking about the consequences first. Why not ask the kids and parents? Why are they making arbitrary decisions? They should have known it wasn't going to work by watching "Food Revolution" a few yars ago, don't remember the chef's name but it didn't work.
