    Indoctrinate means: to teach (someone) to fully accept the ideas, opinions, and beliefs of a particular group and to not consider other ideas, opinions, and beliefs

    Facts are not "ideas, opinions or beliefs", they are facts. Example of a Fact: Carrots are healthier for you than hot dogs.

    If you have an opinion that is in opposition to a fact, then you are a ****ing retard and your opinion is ****ing worthless.

    EVERYONE should fully accept facts and reject opinions that try to defy the facts. that's not called indoctrination, that's called not being a ****ing retard.

    why on earth you have such a problem asking the kids of they actually like their meals is waaay beyond me... but they are the only ones that know the correct answer.

    I don't have a dog in this particular hunt, so i really don't care what you feed them or if they eat it... what i'm saying is that it's best to go to the horses mouth if you want it's answer... asking anyone else is stupid.
    When asking these kids if they liked their meal how do you ensure that they are being honest about their answer? How do you distinguish the difference between an honest No I do not like it from a I am only saying no because I want the old food back or I am only saying no because I am holding out for something better answer? Kids are smarter than we give them credit for.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. 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"

    And apparently that of all the school kids. And since you embrace her healthy choice school menus the. I'm sure you also agree that we MUST end all cash, food stamp, and EBT programs and give those families pre-packaged Mo'bama lunch specials. Right? It's healthy. Do it for the children.

    This does not compute.
    Child hunger isn't an all time high. Child obesity is at an all time high. I'm pretty familiar with healthy diets and have on a number of occasion beaten some posters senseless because they simply do not know what they are discussing. A simple healthy diet is no more expensive than going to McDonald's. However, people have been indoctrinated into thinking that healthy food is expensive. This has been done by corporations and to some extent the laissez faire mentality of many capitalists.

    The poor are the most affected by this approach. They are continually told that going to a local farmer's market is something the rich do. They are told that prepared foods are inexpensive. The reality is that prepared foods are overtaxed (which means the government gets their share) and produced with low quality ingredients (which means corporations make a killing) high in corn fructose.

    All of that ensures that they walk like sheep into the nearest big box store where they cater to the poor and make sure they get fatter. They are told that they can't afford locally produced food and then they are told that it's easier, better, faster to buy it pre-cooked when that just couldn't be further from the truth. I find it outright abhorrent how the lower class has been taught to love ****ty food with the banners of 'Murica and Freedom waving high.

    The Founding Fathers would have been disgusted if they saw the word freedom being used to turn our population into a bunch of fat ****s who couldn't defend the country if it needed them. Well, they would have been disgusted, then they would have cut the heads off the owners of Kraft, Coca-Cola, Mars & P&G.

    The best part is that it's clearly and without a doubt the beloved capitalism of old that right wingers are least likely to be blamed for obesity in this country. Kids have been conditioned through generations of constant ad bombardments to believe that 24-7 television, ordering pizza and sitting all day eating and playing video games is normal behavior for kids. There isn't a single period in human history where being inside for 10 hours a day eating and staring a single spot on the houses' wall was normal child behavior. So then who do we blame? The parents. Are you kidding?

    The parents were conditioned to do that too in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s and now the 10s by their baby boomer grandparents or parents. So how do you criticize a parenting style that wasn't an issue for at least 60 years? You don't. You cut it at the source and restrict the way ads are presented and where they can be presented or you create initiatives for companies to improve their products.

    Give tax rebates for companies who make healthier products. Reschedule advertising on children's television (for example: instead of a 24 mins show with 4 commercial breaks - have a 6 min commercial break between shows.). Lower taxes on local farmers. Create bus routes that specifically lead the poor to cheap food markets. Bring back cooking classes in schools, make them compulsory and use them as an excuse to teach healthy diets. Those are really simple options that can help the populace make better choices regarding what to eat.

    Well, no, I don't; that said, I think it would be prudent to exclude certain items from food stamp/EBT eligibility in favor of more nutritious staples.

    Here's the problem with your argument, the government was choosing the lunches beforehand. This is not the government stepping in where it doesn't belong, this is just the government making a better choice where they already had control.

    Huh...REEEEEAAAALLLLLLYYYYYYY. so...its OK to force a 'healthy school meal (that no one wants) on school chilluns, but not on recipients of food stamps, even though it s allegedly healthy and the right thing to do? Thats not at all shocking.
