    No one said anything about a nanny state. But if we spend our tax dollars, it's best to spend it not on junk, but healthy food. She merely advocates for healthy eating. It's incredible that anyone would object to that, let alone call someone names for it.

    I'm at my ideal bmi (give or take a pound) and like to have pizza and ice cream on occasion. My regular M.O. is to watch my calories and exercise regularly. Am I a hypocrite?

Parents can serve the unhealthy food, as they should be the ones making that decision. It is much better to serve the healthy food to all and have kids and parents upset about how it taste than to serve the unhealthy food, have unhealthy children and students less likely to be prepared to learn (healthier food leads to better learning), and parents that are complaining that the food is all junk food. Let the parents give the kids the junk food.
    If it ends up in the dumpster, it's not helping anyone.

    From the OP:

    When the federal government implemented new school-meal regulations in 2012, a majority of elementary-school students complained about the healthier lunches, but by the end of the school year most found the food agreeable, according to survey results released Monday.
    Reading is gud.

    In food deserts you find people who are malnurished, not underfed. Thus, the food is better.
