    And this is why you don't offer the cookie and chips on a regular basis, especially not if it is being offered as a choice rather than a treat. We know what children would prefer when it comes to eating, but, we, as adults, must ensure that they are offered foods instead that are healthy for them. There is nothing wrong with having snacks, sweets and chips or junk food, once in a while. But most of their food options should be healthier choices.

    The kid's opinion doesn't matter when it comes to whether they should have healthy food or junk food because they are kids. We are adults. We get to make the choices for them in this decision. They can make some decisions about what sort of healthy foods they would like to eat. "Do you want an apple or a banana?" "Would you like meatloaf or spaghetti?"

    Take the new options that are becoming popular at fastfood places now for kid's meals. They are offering french fries or apple slices at many places. Most of the time, as a parent, you should make that decision for them based off of what you think they should eat, not what they would prefer to eat. There are several factors you can keep in mind here, including whether you yourself are getting fries or what else they have had to eat that day or how long its been since you gave them fries or how likely it is that they will eat the apple slices. But if you let the child choose, most children would almost certainly choose the fries.

    Its free right!
    Parents are still allowed to send lunches from home that can be packed with junk food in most schools. And if they can't or they don't like that option, they are free to send their children to private school or homeschool. No one has passed any laws that say that parents must only offer their children healthy food. These guidelines are for what is offered for lunch at government run public schools.

    You forgot the pertinent fact: A Democrat suggested that we start providing healthier lunches. Therefore, anyone who is not a Democrat must, just somehow has to, find fault with the idea.

    The difference was that they were not militant about it. Kids were served mostly healthy food, however they did look forward to treats at some level. The feds should butt out.

    The problem is that I personally don't believe that the kids like the food, which indicates quite strongly that the kids are not indoctrinated (as indoctrinated people actually hold the beliefs that they get indoctrinated with).

    Well, good thing they were only offered "an apple banana or an orange" instead of much less healthy options, right?

    Making a condition for public schools to get extra money for food to feed children lunch to meet certain specific nutritional standards is absolutely not being militant about this. They don't control what the children eat 24/7. They don't control what the parents can and do send to school as an alternative to getting lunch from the school. In fact, they don't even really control what is specifically being served to children for lunch (or breakfast). Many schools were able to either keep their old lunch menus or the vast majority of their old menus with only a few changes, such as changing out for lower fat milk options, giving smaller meat portions, or changing regular spaghetti to whole wheat spaghetti.

    The feds have every right to stipulate what kinds of food the money being given to public schools by the fed for school lunches can be served. It is federal money.
