    Refried beans (1/2 cup)
    Jicama (1/4 cup)
    Green pepper strips (1/4 cup)
    Cantaloupe wedges (1/2 cup)
    Skim milk (8 oz)
    Mustard (9 grams)
    Reduced fat mayonnaise (1 oz)
    Low-fat ranch drip (1 oz)
    Which would you rather have:
    Choices that might be wrong.
    Dictates to ensure you live "right".
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Which doesn't mean they aren't better than what was offered before.

    Would you contend that teaching is not the job of schools then?

    The choice is easy.
    Healthier food for my kids.
    Would you rather that the dictates are un-healthy food?
    There was no choice before.

    Or even equal. I eat a fair amount of veggies but fruits can be high in sugar/calories, without adding the benefit of branched chain amino acids.

    What you've said is (1) your belief and (2) anti-status quo. In a democracy, there's no particular compulsion for any individual or organization to act on your values unless you create one by building a consensus so powerful politicians have to respect it, which you haven't. Even if you had done such a thing, rocking the status quo requires political investment, of which any political actor has a finite amount. There's a sorting algorithm to where they should rock the status quo and where they should work with, through, or around it.

    Given the overall state of education and public health in this country, there's nothing that suggests your policy is the one we should be pursuing right now.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    And high in certain vitamins. And, yes, we should be mindful of the carb content in fruit just as in any other food.

    Who said otherwise? This is why we eat protein sources in addition to fruits/veggies. Y'know....a balanced diet.
