    Um, Americans in general have too little protein. ESPECIALLY kids that are growing everyday. Stuffing them full of carbs is NOT a healthy meal.

    Are there any facts to support that claim?

    ... that flies in the face of the studies I've read and everything I know about the U.S. market on meat and whole grains, but alright.

    This argument is pointless. Whether or not you're eating too many whole grains is relative to what you are eating in the rest of your meals. Studies (and market) say Americans don't eat nearly enough whole grain or dietary fiber and way too much meat.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    In addition, if the "before and after" meals that someone posted earlier are to be believed, the new meals are less carb heavy and the carbs they do have are more complex carbs.

    It would be nice if one of the whiners posted some actual nutrition information instead of "Not enough calories!", "Too many calories!", "Not enough protein!"

    Who said otherwise? This is why we eat protein sources in addition to fruits/veggies. Y'know....a balanced diet.

    ahh, now I see! You're just making crap up

    You guys are just being picayune to obfuscate the fact that the gov't went overboard with the school lunch program in cutting calories from sources that would benefit children like healthy fats, proteins and some carbs. Kids hating the radical food change and not getting enough to feel full is not a success.

    It's a benefit to alter the junk they were primarily eating and limit soda's and sweets, but a growing child's diet is not the same as an adults.

    Study Finds Elementary Students Like New Healthier Lunches - WSJ
    When the federal government implemented new school-meal regulations in 2012, a majority of elementary-school students complained about the healthier lunches, but by the end of the school year most found the food agreeable, according to survey results released Monday.
    The peer-reviewed study comes amid concerns that the regulations led schools to throw away more uneaten food and prompted some students to drop out of meal programs.
    Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago surveyed administrators at more than 500 primary schools about student reaction to the new meals in the 2012-2013 school year. They found that 70% agreed or strongly agreed that students, by the end of the school year, generally liked the new lunches, which feature more whole grains, vegetables and fruits, and lower fat levels.

    Well one study done in Obama's back yard proves it empirically. The act of throwing away perfectly good food = We like it. No arguing about that!
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I see that instead of posting some facts, you've chosen to continue making stuff up and posting it

    Post some facts that say a majority of children like those new meal guidelines?
