    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.
    So less fruit, less veggies, and less carbs.

    That leaves meat. Do you really think kids todays are lacking meat in their diets?

    We don't, but we also allow them the choice to throw it away because we don't have the manpower to have them watched and forced to eat what is put on their plates.

    Did we ever? They've been throwing away perfectly good food for generations. And for this last one at least, I've still been paying for it, healthy or not.

    Re: Study Finds Elementary Students Like New Healthier Lunches

    Here's what I don't understand...

    The recent scuttlebutt is that there are more *starving* and *hungry* children than ever before, who aren't receiving adequate nutrition at home. Because of these poor starving children, we have been getting foodstamps out in record amounts, because everybody is so ashamed that as a nation we are starving our children.

    So...how does the increase in childhood obesity work with that dialogue? And if our children are starving and school meal programs are more important than ever to make sure they don't starve to death...then WHY are we reducing the 1. Calorie count, and 2. protein amount, in those meals?

    And could someone please direct me to a study that links OBESE CHILDREN with STARVATION?

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    So..why are we reducing caloric intake in school cafeterias at a time when (allegedly) childhood hunger is at an all-time high?

    This does not compute.

    Heh, is that the argument? They're going to throw it away anyway why not make the nascent garbage healthy?

    The point is, they haven't been throwing it away for generations, NOT anywhere to this degree.

    Study Finds Elementary Students Like New Healthier Lunches - WSJ
    When the federal government implemented new school-meal regulations in 2012, a majority of elementary-school students complained about the healthier lunches, but by the end of the school year most found the food agreeable, according to survey results released Monday.
    The peer-reviewed study comes amid concerns that the regulations led schools to throw away more uneaten food and prompted some students to drop out of meal programs.
    Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago surveyed administrators at more than 500 primary schools about student reaction to the new meals in the 2012-2013 school year. They found that 70% agreed or strongly agreed that students, by the end of the school year, generally liked the new lunches, which feature more whole grains, vegetables and fruits, and lower fat levels.
    I would like to know where the grant for that so-called study came from.
