    No, the meal pictured is NOT as it has always been. Nor are there plenty of calories. Do you understand what is meant by "negative calories"? Unless there is a double slab of meat hidden in that half sandwich, there aren't enough calories there to keep an active kid going through recess.

    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.

    We feed illegal immigrants better than that. Hell, the bugs in my house eat more.

    And to confirm, yes it was from a second grade mother.

    Plus, most schools still give second graders snack time.

    High school students or really any students who play sports are their parents' responsibility to provide extra for their lunch. The school should not be subsidizing food for your kid's above average activity level, especially when it comes to high schoolers. If your kid plays sports, it is your responsibility to ensure they have enough to eat, not the school's, and certainly not the federal government. They are basing their guidelines off of what the calorie needs are of a child with an average activity level, not the super star athlete (you think food waste is high now, it would be much higher if that was what everyone was served).

    No no.... "undocumented refugees" not illegal immigrants.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Somewhere Sheriff Arpaio has seen this and is saying, "I'm not looking so bad now, eh?"

    Now that's a parent who really knows how to lay out a spread.

    Funny, our parents fed us well and we weren't over weight. It's a big mystery.

    No it's not, it just takes some common sense, which isn't on some peoples menu.

    I never said that it was "as it has always been". Maybe you should reread what was typed.

    There are plenty of calories there. You can't prove there aren't. All you have is your personal opinion on what they should be eating. Most young children get a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch almost daily (and many bring good portions home with them or simply throw some away).

    They should go through recess before lunch. But there are also things such as snack time during elementary school (in most elementary schools anyway) and parents should be providing breakfast for their children as well.

    proof or evidence or more baseless liberal ideology?

    i think i will go with baseless ideology.

    she wouldn't and doesn't feed her kids that slop elitism is great.

    all that stuff on that plate is calory neutral or calory negative not good for growing kids. more so when most of it will end up in the trash.

    Re: Study Finds Elementary Students Like New Healthier Lunches

    If a critic of the new federal guidelines wants to make a convincing case against them they should quote the language they disagree with and point out exactly what is wrong with that particular rule. All I have seen on this thread is ignorant misconceptions about nutrition, speculation and kneejerk anti-government and and anti-Obama rhetoric.

    Here, I'll even help you:

    "...In summary, the January 2011 proposed rule sought to improve lunches and breakfasts by requiring schools to:

    •Offer fruits and vegetables as two separate meal components;

    •Offer fruit daily at breakfast and lunch;

    •Offer vegetables daily at lunch, including specific vegetable subgroups weekly (dark green, orange, legumes, and other as defined in the 2005 Dietary Guidelines) and a limited quantity of starchy vegetables throughout the week;

    •Offer whole grains: half of the grains would be whole grain-rich upon implementation of the rule and all grains would be whole-grain rich two years post implementation;

    •Offer a daily meat/meat alternate at breakfast;

    •Offer fluid milk that is fat-free (unflavored and flavored) and low-fat (unflavored only);

    •Offer meals that meet specific calorie ranges for each age/grade group;

    •Reduce the sodium content of meals gradually over a 10-year period through two intermediate sodium targets at two and four years post implementation;

    •Prepare meals using food products or ingredients that contain zero grams of trans fat per serving;

    •Require students to select a fruit or a vegetable as part of the reimbursable meal;

    •Use a single food-based menu planning approach; and

    •Use narrower age/grade groups for menu planning..."

    Nutrition Standards in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast
    Programs; Final Rule http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012.../2012-1010.pdf

    Which of those rules is unreasonable or not scientifically valid?

    Do you have any evidence to support your claims that there aren't enough calories, that children can't handle milk or nuts, and that kids burn more calories eating carrots and celery than they contain?

    Or are you just making **** up?
