    Re: Study Finds Elementary Students Like New Healthier Lunches

    I haven't read one supporter of the new lunch meal guidelines that'll admit it might be slightly overboard?

    There's nothing wrong with improving the diets of a bunch of over weight, sedentary kids but there's a common sense, middle ground, without torturing them with bunny rabbit food. But god forbid anyone critize precious Michelle and her looney initiative extremes.

    What is overboard about the new guidelines?

    We are free. Free to choose between Coke and Pepsi. What a great country!

    In many neighborhoods it is easier to find and buy illegal drugs than fresh fruit and vegetables.

    The limit is not 750, it is 850 for high school students, teenagers, which they found is pretty close to the average amount of calories that they were being served prior to the guidelines changing. Plus,

    No one "outlawed" meatball subs or ice cream for school children. In fact, my child last year had several days where they had junk food during class. Plus, some schools even have ice cream as an "a la carte" item, as it has always been. Students have always had to pay extra (at least every school I've ever known) for things like ice cream. I can prove this.

    Oh and some get meatball subs for lunch as well.

    Maybe you should actually look at what is allowed rather than simply reacting to some things being said on the internet. Meatball subs nor ice cream are banned from schools. Ice cream in public schools has almost never been available as included in the regular meal price, and has pretty much always been for most schools an a la carte option, as it still is in many schools.
    So if she thinks that kids need to eat healthier how about she tends to her own kids first. yes lunch rooms cannot serve those things as they violate the amount of protien and other restrictions that she thinks other kids should be on.

    no that is not how elitism works.

    she would never feed her kids the slop that she is making other kids eat.

    ice cream falls outside the to much calories for the meals.

    no 750-850 calories is not enough for a person burning over 1000.

    not to mention there are plenty of studies that say hungry students don't learn was well or concentrate as good.

    Many kindergarteners can't eat more than that, preschoolers even less. That is a healthy amount for many elementary school age children. It's insane to believe that what you posted isn't good enough for elementary age kids. And I'm willing to bet that is closer to preschool lunch.

    That is in fact more than what is recommended (and I know from experience) that most Kindergarteners and preschoolers will eat at a lunch if you can get them to eat the fruits and vegetables (if they are hungry, they will eat them). It all depends on the child.

    Healthy Meal Planner: How Much Does My Kid Need to Eat?

    When I sent my son to school just about a month ago with his lunches, he normally came back with half a sandwich, no matter which one I sent because a whole sandwich was too much for him to eat. And he didn't have that much extra. With a lunch like this, he would barely be able to eat it even if he liked vegetables. But if he's hungry, he'll eventually eat it. Plus, if teachers introduce different fruits and vegetables to the class as part of classroom learning activities (the Kinders in Cali taste tested various fruits and later various specific apple types to graph who liked which ones), they would likely encourage kids to like even more types of foods. Younger kids are generally eager to please adults, and recognize that eating what adults want you to eat (or at least trying to) pleases us.

    Once you get hooked on facts you'll move on to science and even thinking. The next thing you know you'll start accepting scientific theories about evolution and climate change. That kind of dangerous thinking can lead to questioning religion and other traditional ideas.

    You know, kids are supposed to grow, right? There aren't enough calories for one. For another, though I hate that it's true, most of the kids today seemingly cannot handle real milk like that. The nuts are very hard to digest. The carrots and celery are diet foods for a reason, takes more calories to chew than are gotten from them. And even prisoners get a whole sandwich.

    that looks like a high school lunch or middle school.
    most of that will be thrown into the garbage which is what is worse.


    we pack our kids lunches and they never complain about being hungry. i would be ticked off if i knew i was spending money on that.
