    Shouldn't that be left to the taxpayers? Why do you get to decide?

    Encouraging children to eat healthy is a much much better use of tax money than a lot of **** we waste money on.

    Ahem. The entire exchange was light-hearted.

    My experience is it takes time to get kids used to more healthy food but it's worth the effort. The overweight people I see in this country today compared to Americans 30 or 40 years ago is beyond belief. Let's give the first lady some credit for trying to make a change.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Not only that, but it costs no more than feeding them junk food.

    It's been stated that the new program food costs are higher, due to all the fresh fruits and vegetables.

In fact, the first one is a study for waste that was occurring prior to the new standards, which shows that a lot of food was already being wasted by children (the new standards went into effect in 2010, the research was done from 2007-2009, only the analyses of the data was done after the new standards went into effect). The second one didn't compare the waste, only selected to track how much fruit and vegetable waste there was, which means that we have no clue how that compared to waste of food from before. Perhaps they are eating more of their other food choices than before. Maybe the fruits and veggies are now the main thing being thrown away as compared to before. We don't really know, but the research from before shows that there was a lot of waste of school lunch before the new standards came about.

    The other research is actually more interesting and doesn't show anything I'm not familiar with. Yes, children have to have some incentives to eat/try new foods usually, particularly veggies and fruits. I wouldn't quite go with actual monetary bribes for eating the food but think the tokens are a good idea, especially for trying the different foods.

    As for how much, that first study you posted gives a small idea, at least for middle school students of how much was getting wasted.

    Schools have a $1,000,000,000 dollar of food waste annually with the new program that started 2012/2013,
    which hasn't been acknowledged.

    In the school year of 2012/2013, 30.7 million children participated in the lunch program, and 21.5 million of these children received free and reduced-price lunch. Leaving only 9.2 paying regular price for lunch. So who is most likely producing a large portion of this food waste? Could it be those free or reduced-price lunches? Something to think about.

    The interesting aspect was the many schools opting out, they have their priorities in the right place. Saying No to MO and will be designing their own healthy menus.

    Doesn't do much good when your not also teaching the parent how to feed the child.
