    Tuesday- Cheese pizza, salad, apple
    Wednesday- Soft taco, corn, banana
    Thursay- Cheese quesadilla, cherry tomatoes, kiwi
    Friday - Grilled chilli lime chicken, brown rice, red beans, oranges


    With the exception of Friday, I don't see any issue why most kids, my own included, wouldn't eat most of those items. Unless of course their parents don't parent and let the child decide what is right to eat. My daughter will usually whine that she doesn't like something, and it's most likely something she ate and liked before, so she either eats it or doesn't and gets no snacks. I will make her try new things and if she doesn't like it fine, but she won't know if she does or doesn't like it without trying.
    My own child's lunch menu when he starts next week.

    Monday - Deep Dish Pepperoni Pizza, Tuna salad w/ crackers, Trix Yogurt cup, carrots, broccoli, peaches, seasonal fruit
    Tuesday - Deli Turkey with cheese sub, Chicken nuggets w/ roll, romaine salad, whipped potatoes w/ gravy, pineapple, seasonal fruit
    Wednesday - Corndog, Manager's choice, yogurt parfait w/pears, green peas, baked potato, strawberry cup, seasonal fruit, 100% orange juice
    Thursday - Beef & broccoli w/rice, Cheese dunkers w/marinara sauce, corn, stir fry veggies, apple sauce, seasonal fruit
    Friday - Chicken filet sandwich, Southwest quesadilla w/salsa, PB&J swirl box, sweet potato chunks w/maple glaze, refried beans, peaches

    I honestly don't know what the issue is.

    The issue is obvious, isn't it?

    The new lunch guidelines were supported by a Democrat. Therefore, the lunch menu is a liberal lunch menu, and therefore evil and intended to indoctrinate children into leftism.

    No inconsistency on my part I think the voters/parents should make the decision. I am only giving my opinion of what the composition of the meals should be. You do understand the difference between opinion and demand, don't you?

    That menu brings up another point. I don't think the schools should be serving any meal but lunch. Let the parents feed them breakfast before they head off to school.

    Why serve any meal?

    What's so special about lunch?

    I kind of hope you can work that one out on your own. They are not at home during lunch period. Breakfast is a waste of taxpayer money. When I was a kid, they did not offer breakfast at the public schools. We somehow survived. I'ts called "breakfast at home before you head to school". What's next? Send social workers to their homes to tuck them in at night?

    They aren't home during lunch period, but they can bring a lunch with them to school. Why should the taxpayers provide lunch for the little freeloaders at all?

    They didn't have breakfast when I was in school either. The school lunch was only subsidized to the point that the cafeteria was given surplus agricultural products. As a result, the lunch served at school was pretty good, little regulated, and cost about the same as a burger, fries and a soft drink at the local burger place.

    On the other hand, unskilled and semi skilled work payed a whole lot more than it does now. Maybe it's time for the government to quit subsidizing low wage employers.

    I will just repeat that I am okay with the public schools serving lunch. Breakfast is a vast waste of taxpayer money. I'll leave it at that.

    Have you ever heard of Maslow's hierarchy of needs?

    Now Michelle Obama Has Caused America’s ‘Best Cafeteria Cookie’ To Be Outlawed

    An eruption of aggravation about what American schoolchildren can no longer eat in school cafeterias is never far away in the Obama era. Now, thanks to federal intervention that first lady Michelle has made her signature issue, students in all 11 taxpayer-funded public schools in Elyria, Ohio…
