    Parents can send the kids in with their own lunches.

    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.
    It's not a good idea for politics to project their ideology into all facets of our lives. Well balanced meals with the 3 food groups is still a superior model to the adult diets. Encouraging more physical ed and activities for children, will go a long ways in attaining healthy physiques.

    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.

    Since when do we let children dictate what is best for them?

    Do you have links that show such meals are the norm in these programs?

    And there have been changes to the nutritional value in those food groups. The new lunches do not diverge from what is nutritionally sound and are not some boutique or trendy agenda.

    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.

    Look at the program and make your own judgement.

    As long as they are 'healthy' foods I'm not real concerned. Again...this is not meant to be complete nutritional content for children...it's one meal of the day.

    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.
