    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.
    Nothing says she isn't. But her kids almost have to go to a private school right now, and you have no idea if they are eating there or in fact what they are eating while they are there. There are healthy options at that school.

    If her kids went to public school, perhaps she would push for the school to actually fix the menu to work better for taste while still meeting the guidelines, something that is completely possible and other schools are doing. Who knows? Maybe she would simply send their lunch, an option that is available for the vast majority of schools.

    Since when is lunch the only meal that a teenager is going to get during a day? That is the average amount that they were served before the new regulations. What happened to them being responsible for their own food that they want extra? Students don't have to go hungry, especially not in high school. They can bring more food with them from home (none of the guidelines ban this, only individual schools). They can buy extra food a la carte (again, the guidelines do not ban this). Many high school age students can even leave campus to get food.

    lets not forget those kis allergic to nuts. also it isn't even whole milk it is skim milk which is basically white water.
    they go to gym or play football or some other sport and that will not fill them up and probably make them sick.

    again i don't see obama's kids eating that.

    no they get
    BBQ sandwhiches
    roasted chicken
    ice cream
    meatball subs
    and a whole slew of other

    elitism at its finest

    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.
    Bull. That is obviously an elementary or lower lunch tray. Not too hard to figure out if you aren't blinded by partisan beliefs.

    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.

    There are plenty of calories for that single meal for the average students in each age group. Those students who need more are free to buy more or bring more from home, just as they have always been.

    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.


    I was never talking about preschool, only school ages for the meal program.
    But most kids at the ages of 7-15 yrs old, need between 1500-3000 calories a day.
    That plate is fine, if it's for a 300lb adult trying to lose weight.

    I wouldn't call her 'nowhere at all' but that's close.


    I'm sure the extraordinary is all your posts.

    As this picture proves, the new nutritional guidelines are resulting in superior school lunch meals.
