    Wrong again.
    It is you who apparently can not distinguish between liking something, and thinking it is or isn't healthier.
    The two are separate aspects.

Food thrown away = not too few calories. Get it?
    Once again you're serving a variety of conflicting needs. Kids who are hungry, underfed. Kids who are fat, overfed. Kids who are active, kids who are sedentary. And what does it tell you when the trash can is full and the kids were of the hungry, underfed variety. When even the underfed won't touch it with a ten foot pole, you're off the track.

    I'm less impressed with local school boards who have made such demands as giving students 50% credit for work they didn't even do. But show me the federal mandate.

    I have asked kids if they like broccoli. Kids don't tend to say they like something they don't out of fear they might be made to eat it.

    When I was a kid, no amount of my parents telling me "Onions are good for you. Try them you'll like them!" got me to like onions. If my parents failed to "indoctrinate" me (and they'd force me to eat the onions) there's 0 chance some teacher the kid probably ****ing hates is going to succeed at making them like something they don't.

    Do you think what we're talking about here is a locally funded and conceived program, really?

    You are trying to say that when you said "After being indoctrinated throughout the school year that the lunches are so much better" You meant "better" to mean "better tasting" not "better for them". Do I have that right?

    Yes, that's another can of worms altogether. I was addressing the argument that the new standards are turning everyone into Starvin Marvin.

    Your assumption that students are going underfed as a result of the new program is just that, an assumption. You're pulling that out of your ass. Your other assumption, that kids are starving because they're throwing away food they won't eat? That also came from your ass. As a matter of fact, every single one of your arguments in this thread has had that same exact origin, including (but not limited to) the notion that kids can't bring in their own lunches. Please stop bringing forth arguments from your ass, and start sourcing them from something factual (not your ass).
