    However the school lunches have never been the reason for childhood obesity. Too much soda pop and too many trips for fast food are the problem. It's the parent's responsibility, not the schools. The flotus is not going to make any difference at all in regards to childhood obesity. And it is not any of her business.

    Eating short ribs occasionally doesn't make you a hypocrite.Eating unhealthy food occasionally doesn't make you a hypocrite.

    "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"

    It should be the local district PTAs determining the lunch menus for their school district. The feds and state should have no say whatsoever. The district has a budget for school lunches and they are familiar with working with the PTA.

    So how does this ^^^^^ work with the concept that it's better to reduce the calories in the only meals (allegedly) that children may be receiving at all?

    Hint...it doesn't. Polar opposite views, held by the same admin. Embraced interchangeably as suits them to secure more money and place further restrictions upon the citizenry.

    Hunger a growing problem in America, USDA reports
    Because a change of about 7 calories (and that is only the average of what was offered before, not actually taken by students) is so going to make that much of a difference for those children who only eat lunch at school? 7 whole calories is not going to be the difference between full and hungry, well fed and starvation.

    Kids push back on new school lunch

    A large national study showed that under the old standards, high school students were offered an average of 857 calories a day, and they were taking only about 787 calories on average, Wootan says. So the current maximum of 850 calories is right on track, she says.
    Plus, this doesn't include breakfast, which is also added by many schools, along with after school snacks for those students who have to spend more time at the school after school (this program happened at our school in San Diego). So that would just about cover it. I doubt many parents have much trouble feeding their children another 500 calories or so for dinner. If they are having that big of a problem with it, maybe they need to get assistance or figure something out. If that doesn't work, then perhaps someone else should be raising those children to ensure they get fed.

    The hungriest children are absolutely going to eat everything on their plate, if they know that is the only food they will get the whole day.

    That isn't how it is now. How much power do you imagine the PTA has in such a decision?

    I said quite clearly I thought that's how it should be. And actually the PTAs do have quite a lot of input with the school boards and the districts.

    You are just showing that you do not understand what you quote.
    The topic is about "like".
    It is indoctrination.

    They are. But since you agree with it it is all fine and dandy with you.
    Either you oppose a nanny State or you don't.

    And? I never said it wasn't. But it is the definition.

    Wrong. The images stand as is. You suggesting that they may be fake is unsupportable and w/o evidence to even suggest such, is an idiotic argument.
    Nor do I have to provide a menu for the purposes they were used for.

    Re: Study Finds Elementary Students Like New Healthier Lunches

    Nobody wants to address my question.

    Which is...

    If we are beefing up these programs because hunger is such a huge issue...

    #1, why do we need more money to feed them less food, and
    #2, why do we feed fewer calories, if kids aren't eating when they go home?

    Does that make sense?

    nope, it doesn't. Hunger is not the same as excess caloric intake. It's one or the other, not both.

    These programs are funded under the umbrella of 'feeding the hungry'. If we are serving the hungriest children, then why are we REDUCING CALORIES?

    As the thread progressed from the above post, we have seen everything you said just isn't true.
