    Thanks for the link, but it isn't anything new. They revised the old program from 2004 when childhood obesity was first recognized and new USDA regulations were incorporated into the national lunch program at that time.

    Correct! It's what kids eat before school, what snacks they bring to school, and any time after school,
    along with little to no physical activity.

    One report posted a dietitian said 97 to 98% of the kids in her school were of average weight and she gets grief for the 2 to 3% of over weight.

    Nothing wrong with healthy eating but a one size fits all, leaves a mark on those who are not over weight.

    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.
    And again, you have no idea what it used to be annually, so it could easily have been the same. That $1B for over 98000 schools. That comes out to about $10K per school. Your link from earlier showed that the middle school studied threw away about $400K worth of trash before these new guidelines. Now, obviously they could easily have more students than the average school, but the point is that there has always been waste with school food. Unless you can find a study to compare waste to waste and show a significant increase, then you haven't proven anything.

    Which has what to do with that link? That link has to do with what schools are required to serve students, which despite what is being said, is only 1/2 cup of any combination of fruits and/or vegetables, and at least two other items. This means that at most, the federal program can only be blamed for 1/2 cup of food waste, and then only if the student is not eating any of the fruits or vegetables on their plate. The rest is due to the individual schools making decisions beyond the guidelines, for whatever reasons.

    educating the child is the best that could be done. It would be great if parents could be responsible and feed their children healthy meals but a lot of parents are lazy. And oddly enough it seems some parents hate the idea of their children living long healthy lives. Even more oddly is alot of people complain out the burden of obesity and diet related illness costs on our healthcare systems and yet are opposed to kids eating healthy. I guess if you oppose both you always have something to complain about. maybe thats the purpose.

    The feds should keep out of it. Those schools are state and local jurisdiction.

    Glad we can agree the waste food could be the same. Which appears to be the case from my link.
    When we get your links, studies and numbers we'll talk more considering I'm only proving current food waste.

    Thanks
