    Not too retarded when it's an adult with a bias surveying children. In fact, it's how you get the answers you want. Of course the trash can was filled, but let's ignore that so Michelle can have her win, right?

    There's no such mandate. Only that what we provide with tax dollars be healthy. You can choose to bring a can of grease if you so choose.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Not actually the kids opinions.
    Or that complaints and food thrown away had dropped, as we all knew would be the case.

    Study Finds Elementary Students Like New Healthier Lunches - WSJ
    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.
    The peer-reviewed study comes amid concerns that the regulations led schools to throw away more uneaten food and prompted some students to drop out of meal programs.
    Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago surveyed administrators at more than 500 primary schools about student reaction to the new meals in the 2012-2013 school year. They found that 70% agreed or strongly agreed that students, by the end of the school year, generally liked the new lunches, which feature more whole grains, vegetables and fruits, and lower fat levels.
    They must have gotten the good stuff because I had to force myself to eat school sandwhiches with what I thought at the time and still do today think was chemical meat (like our hot dogs that used to bounce up from the ground at incredible heights).

Kids are not forbidden from bringing their own. So, we're only talking about what the school provides.
    And for the kids that don't face weight issues? And since we're restricting this to only the kids who can't or don't bring their own, don't you suppose a larger percentage of those kids might be hungry? Why feed them diet food.

    I love how he argues that when in our school it was kind of the opposite where if you didn't bring lunch you were almost forced to eat unhealthy. Can these conservatives and libertarians fight for the other sides rights as well?

    All of your opinions of school food are still probably stuck in the 80's or before, granted school food probably hasn't changed a single ****ing bit it's good to have fresh not-even two years old information coming in.

    It's already been shown that's not always the case. Regardless, not a federal decision, nor is it something the feds should be involved in. The local parents and schools should work this out. Michelle should stick to her inane food commercials on the Disney channel.

    Interesting, my home state. Kids in my school didn't even get fruits or veggies to begin with, but 4 bags of cookies was certainly in the hands of a ton of kids... If kids took veggies or fruits and threw them out it could have been for a multitude of reasons including Just for fun (you'll be surprised at how we kept ourselves entertained outside of terribly premature sex).
