    The largely conservative blowback is pretty much based on that one fact alone and it's overwhelmingly evident because there is no reason whatsoever to argue against healthier food in schools unless it was politically motivated

    There's absolutely no rational way you can argue against it.
    Or it could be that the program is a misguided failure.

    Except it isn't a failure. There is no evidence that children are really eating that much less (or really any less) food than in the past. There is no evidence that children are more unhappy with their food choices in school than they were before. Many people are basing their opinion of this off of the opinions of high schoolers (who are known to be resistant to changes and healthy food) and administrators who really are just making general assumptions. Even if some kids are more unhappy with their food choices than before, it doesn't mean that all are, nor does it mean that more children aren't happier with their healthier food choices. I guarantee some children are happier.

    Wrong.

    1. It is further Gov encroachment where they do not belong, especially as your child's health, or what they eat is none of the govs business.

    And even as it were ...
    2. The food was already healthy.

    3. Healthy food doesn't have to taste bad.
    First of all, you just proved his point since "further government encroachment" would still be a politically motivated reason to oppose healthier school lunches. Plus, this is the government's business since it is the government paying for the school lunch program or at providing additional funding for it in this case, that makes it their business.

    Second, no most school lunches were not already healthy. And no, healthy food doesn't have to taste bad, but when it does it is a problem with the local administrations not trying to make the food taste good or at least better.

    No I didn't.
    He said it was because of a name. As in opposing it simply because the name is Obama.
    And that is false.
    No one is opposing it because it comes from someone named Obama.
    Saying that opposition is based on someones last name is nothing but a foolish comment and absurdly wrong.


    Secondly he said; "There's absolutely no rational way you can argue against it." It being the changes.
    Which is also wrong as shown.

    So all you are doing is talking nonsense. A biased nonsense at that.

    Bs. That doesn't make it their business. They force that and the only way to stop it is to stand up to it.
    The gov could simply provide per pupil cost and let the school and the local parents figure it out.
    But that just ignores their overreach to begin with. They shouldn't be involved at all.

    Yeah they were, they fell within the gov guidelines and the food groups.
    And they were far more nutritious on a whole, as they were being eaten instead of tossed.

    Oh, no, they're not opposing changes to the sixty plus year old school lunch program because someone named Obama is behind it, no. It's because someone who is a Democrat is behind it.

    So, the logic goes, if the school administrators say that the kids like the new lunches, then they're either:
    brainwashed, or
    lying because they, too, are Democrats, or possibly
    just don't know any better because as we all know, anything suggested by democrats is bad.

    Even good nutrition is bad. The kids would be better off eating Republican Freedom Fries and vegetable catsup than the stuff that Democrats like.

    It's a failure. Too many school lunches are ending up in the trash. It's a bribe to begin with.

    Actually, there are plenty of people who are opposing it simply because it is supported by Obama, either the President or his wife. I can't say if you are or not. I don't know. But opposing it because you believe it is beyond the scope of the government's power to determine what should be served for lunch in the schools when the government is providing the money for those lunches for those government run schools is opposing it for political reasons, even if not the specific political concern in question in the earlier post.

    Just because they fell within government guidelines does not mean that the food was healthy. Also, again, there is very little evidence that all the food, or even good portions of the healthy food is being thrown away, or large percentages of the students are throwing out the food. The "evidence" is anecdotal.

    You can't prove that "too many school lunches are ending up in the trash". In fact, you can't prove that it is more lunches/food than before, especially for the younger grades. All the evidence right now is anecdotal.
