    That is teaching, not indoctrination.
    Stop and think for a moment ...You are arguing that the schools should feed kids less healthy food...
    Is that really who you want to be?
    Just to be anti-Obama?
    Really?
    Why the assumption that every kid in America is fat?

    Being someone that has two kids in Public School I am so glad my wife takes the time to pack my children a lunch each day. This is one headache I don't have to think about.

I'm also extremely uncomfortable with some recent policies that allow some schools to override parental judgement when it comes to meals.
    Then parents can send their own food with their kids.


    If it's on my dime, I believe it should be healthy. PLenty of other times and meals for the kids to eat at home. And if not, then what little healthy food is available should be taken advantage of.

    I think the goal is probably complete nutrition but again, is it the school's job to provide complete nutrition for lunches or just healthy food?

    Again, school is not the only source of food for kids. If they get little food or junk food elsewhere, at least this is a boost.

    Would it be inappropriate for me to ask you to provide some facts to back that up?
    Not to mention that he said nutrition. Nutrition and caloric intake are 2 different things.

    I understand that. Not really my point. I simply stated that, imo, the new lunches weren't really all that "healthy" even if they were a step up from the previous menu. Too many carbs.
