They seem to be swinging from one extreme to the next with political philosophies, and trying to apply them to everyday life. Just compromise by giving the kids some healthier choices that at least taste good. Meals consisting primarily of fruits and veggies simply won't get eaten.
Einstein, "science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."
There's nothing about nutritional 'philosophy' here. And I didnt see where meals were primarily fruits and vegetables.
If kids throw it away, let them go hungry. Either they'll change their behavior or they'll go hungry. Or mom and dad can provide what they will eat.
I realize that this is unfortunately probably the most healthy...even the most food period....that many kids get.
I have no problem with healthier meals at school. The problem is that a lot of kids won't eat it. They'll throw away good food --- money --- and just eat something crappy when they get home. Maybe there should be some system where if you keep throwing the majority of your food away, your parents have to send a lunch with you.
