    Why is it a bad thing "indoctrinating" kids that healthy food is better?

    you didn't have to tell me all that. All you had to do was say "Yes, it would be inappropriate to provide some facts'

    Healthier?
    See above Pic.


    Indoctrination is not a Government's job.
    Or would you prefer that the Gov indoctrinate everybody to socialist ideals? Or how about liberal ideals?
    Or maybe you want Gov to indoctrinate to Conservative ideals?


    So again, we need less Gov control and less Gov influence.

    Hey, you ask. We were beasts compared to today' s lazy little nerds. We road bikes, swam, played ball and ran every day in the heat. I had a six pack at 16yrs old and was a monster of an athlete consuming huge quantities of calories.

    ... government was already controlling the content of the school lunch. They run the schools.

    That is not the issue here.
    The schools are and have been subsidizing the lunches for kids who need the program... there is nothing new about that.
    The issue isn't should the schools feed the kids .
    The issue is should the schools feed the kids healthy food or junk food.
    You come down on the side of favoring junk food just to be contrary to anything Obama.
    You say **** the health of the kids just to make some stupid political points.
    Shame on you.
