    Re: LAUSD Students Roundly Reject Healthier School Lunch Menu

    IIRC it was public buildings that had been some of the first places which removed cigarette vending machines and banned smoking back in the day.

    If the government is doing the serving then maybe they need minimize the amount of possible side effects and potential liability from what they are selling or providing.

    Somehow I imaging that if the schools had been serving Twinkies and Ding Dongs someone would be crying that the government is wasting tax dollars on luxurious and extravagant stuff that isn't necessary to sustain life

    Maybe some parents can keep their kids in check while they are at the dinner table/home by feeding them only health diets but when the kids get sent to school with money to buy lunch those kids could get a hold of sweets that aren't allowed at home which should be unacceptable IMO, the school should be the last place the parents need to worry about their kids being mistreated diet wise or otherwise.

    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.
    And that's very subjective.

    Offering, instead, “healthy” foods that are so disgusting that the children won't eat them really doesn't seem like much of a solution.

    Have you ever had Pad Thai? It's delicious.

    As long as tax payers are paying for the meals at public schools it is fair to dictate what a public school cafeteria can and can't serve.If the kids choose to not eat it then that is their business.Boring Bob does have the right idea.Take what the kids are familiar with and make it healthy and I do not mean tossing out real food and replacing it with vegan pussy crap.

    Is Pad Thai made at a school where they go for the cheapest ingredients any good?

    "Craptastic", maybe compared to Twinkies and Ho-Ho's. Still if your going to sit here and rally against "government force" here over unhealthy lifestyle choices and then support other government force like the War on Drugs; you're a hypocrite.

    No, I haven't. If I had a good example of it, I might agree that it is very well worth eating.

    But it seems to be quite apparent from the article that the version of it included in these school lunches was not something that a large portion of the children found to be worth eating. However much you or I or anyone else might like some well-prepared version of Pad Thai, doesn't mean anything at all if the school is trying to serve a version of it to these children, that the children find unappetizing.

    It seems fair for whom to dictate this? The taxpayers themselves, some body of elected representatives who are accountable to the taxpayers, or some group of faceless bureaucrats who are not at all accountable to the taxpayers?

    Just where is the connection that you claim between paying for something, and dictating the terms of how this money is to be spent?

    Something tells me that the children who are rejecting this food are much more closely connected to the taxpayers who are paying for this food (being the children of these taxpayers) than are the officials who are dictating the content of this food.

    The tax payers and their elected representatives.

    If you are a tax payer you have every right to dictate what goes on at schools,what is served at schools and to have elected representatives do this as well.

    Something tells me that the children who are rejecting this food are much more closely connected to the taxpayers who are paying for this food (being the children of these taxpayers) than are the officials who are dictating the content of this food.
    Judging by this article it was children who helped pick out these healthy alternatives.
