    Not the schools I had experience in... food was pretty horrid... not much better here in Taiwan, sadly...

    Don't know if it was a pro forma school policy or not, but not once did I ever see a child bring one...

    Really, school lunches? they know better than you or I what we should feed our children? I think this is far out of bounds.
    This is all about money!!!!!!!!! This goes all the way back, at least, to the Clinton years. No doubt it tied into Michelle Obama's efforts too. But it's all about federal funding and school lunch contractors.

    Politics from the past is still with us.

    School lunches make you a fatty.

    We need Glenn Beck on this. He could come up with an elaborate ulterior motive for the schools. They could be putting in mind altering drugs and we would never know it..

    Seriously though. My kids eat school food, and I join one of them each week for lunch, and it's crap, especially the grilled cheese.. LOL

    My wife and I talked about it, and next year we will be sending our kids to school with packed lunches. (We already paid for the entire year so why waste, right? It's the jooo in me I suppose...
