THAT would do so much more then craptastic food foisted by a bunch of arrogant bureaucrats.

    What I don't get is someone like yourself that thinks Government SHOULD dictate how people live.
    I dont see at as the government dictating anything at all, I just see it as the government not being part of the problem.

    Its the right move, the government should limit the amount of unhelalthy choices they provide (dont know what this school is actually serving) and OF COURSE the the kids have the right to choose to bring their own stuff.

    Its like me with my mom. She is twice widowed and I help support her etc etc. You know what I NEVER buy her? Her stinkin cigarettes LOL This wont STOP her from smoking of course but i sure as hell wont HELP her harm herself.

    Also Im sure Jet is all for gym classes and recess.

    I know I am, ive even told my daughter if her school district would go to one of those BS "non touch" schools or "everybody wins" schools or Pass/Fail schools id pull her out of there faster than lightning!

    I have a different issue. I hate hearing that lots of this food was thrown away. Give it to folks who need food.
    I'm glad someone else noticed the same thing I did. If you don't want to eat the healthier choices then just bring crap from home. But don't throw perfectly good food in the garbage!

    What a bunch of spoiled, self-entitled brats.

    Our society is still free when it comes to food, you just need to stop drinking koolaid. Schools should only be offering healthy choices. If people don't want them they are free to bring their junk from home, as these families have demonstrated.

    I find you immoral for cheering on unhealthy degeneration just because it suits your political agenda. Shame on you.

    This is a good analogy. There is a difference between support/non-support and dictating/non-dictating. The government, in this case, chooses to not support unhealthy food choices. The kids can STILL make those unhealthy decisions if they want. There is no government control, here.

    This is complete BS. I have nothing against people eating healthier, but bringing them disgusting food that they will never eat is not a solution. They will just bring food from home. A better solution is to improve the food they already have.

    It is a perfect example of the law of unintended consequences.

    What makes you think it's disgusting? Here's a couple of their lunch menus:

    Oven Baked Pizza Whole Kernel Corn
    Omega Fruit Cup Plum
    Veggie Option: Black Bean Burger

    Natural Roast Turkey & Au Jus Whole Wheat Roll
    Green String Beans
    California Fresh Fruit
    Veggie Option: Garden Burger

    Chunky Beef & Vegetable Stew
    Corn Bread
    Baby Carrots
    Veggie Option: Tortellini & Butternut Squash Sauce with String Cheese

    Does anyone think those are 'disgusting'?

    Yep its not about "control" its about no longer "aiding".

    Now again I dont know what is being served but simply limiting junk is a GOOD thing not a bad thing. If the kids dont like it then by all means the can bring junk from home.

    otherwise get over it.

    there is no draconian push to make kids eat the food served in school.

    the only downside to this is the big businesses that have purchased the right to sell their product resembling food as nutritional, through purchased legislators.
    No - we do not have to just accept *whatever* they want to do.

    They are able to function - because we pay the taxes that enable them to function. They rely heavily on donations and fund raisers and parental cooperation and support to continue to function.

    Just because it's mass quantities doesn't mean it needs to taste like crap or that parents have no say in anything.

    Do you honestly believe that we don't mean much?

    Re: LAUSD Students Roundly Reject Healthier School Lunch Menu

    I have nothing wrong with the intent of giving children healthier food, but craptastic food no one wants to eat?

    And the parents are reacting, by dropping their paying for the ****. Here at home my son has a loaded card for school lunches, but he's required, by me, to pack a lunch at LEAST twice a week.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Sure beats sloppy joes, runny apple sauce, and over-cooked broccoli - what we had at least once a week when I in school. Fridays were pizza day and we usually had over-cooked chicken nuggets once a week.

    These kids need to learn a little gratitude.
