Talk about parent's responsibility, or lack thereof, that was a prime example.
    There has been one school, somewhere in Chicago, but they were banned before the new guidelines on nutrition ever came out. The principle even says it was done over 6 years ago because of junk food being brought on field trips. Most people do not agree with this. It is one thing to limit what sorts of food a kid might bring to school, another to ban all lunches from home.

    Another place where lunches from home have been banned is in preschools/head start programs. However, there have been no actual federal guideline that says they have to be banned provided, despite some schools, districts, or even states thinking otherwise. And some of them are being banned for other reasons besides base nutrition, among those being sanitation, potential allergies, no place to store them, and school liability issues. I imagine there are a lot of reasons that schools for preschool age children would not want lunches brought in. In fact, the school my son went to last year for speech had preschool classes that only lasted 3-4 hours, with two different sessions each day (one morning, one afternoon). The students only got snacks provided by the school in their classrooms.

    Considering the Moochelle comment from him I think you are right.

    However, she is seen eating unhealthy food fairly often.

    Partisan hack for which party? I am an independent. I just do not like nanny state government. I don't think the feds should have any influence on school lunches.

    A handful of incidences doesn't mean squat.

    Of course you are, that is why you use the term Moochelle multiple times in this thread.

    You do realize the government is the one ordering the school lunches?

    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.
    Those kids are being put in an environment were they feel its better. its not better, it sucked, and it used to be better in the past. We actually got fed.

    I'm sure you can cut and paste sections of Einstein's theory of general relativity, too, but like that definition, but I'm equally sure you can't comprehend it.
