A very CONvoluted thought process.
Fact is CONs are fighting the implementation of healthier school lunches. CONs are refusing to fund education- (Oklahoma's Mary Fallin PRIDES herself on gutting Education) rather than train food service personnel in the school lunch program CONs want to keep the skill set at something like McDonalds on a penal scale.
Passive aggressive???? WTF, I say everything I mean in as civil a tone as I can... given the silly statements made by CONs... you and APDST are excellent examples of CONdom....
Apparently the kids don't mind, only the lazy administrators.
In interviews, school nutrition directors across the country mostly agreed that healthy changes were needed in school lunches -- long famous for daily servings of greasy fries and pizza. Kids have adapted easily to many of the changes, are getting more variety in the lunch line and are eating healthier. According to USDA, more than 90 percent of schools are meeting the standards.
But Domokos-Bays and other school nutrition directors say they would like to see some revisions. They say the standards were put in place too quickly as kids get used to new tastes.
At Alexandria's Patrick Henry Elementary last Tuesday, students said they loved their lunches and gobbled up plump strawberries. Kindergartner Jade Kennedy said she recently tried kiwi at school for the first time.
Is what you're living for today, worth dying for tomorrow?
This whole issue is IMO insane. If one is on a Free/Reduced meal plan you fall into the "beggar" group. Beggar's can't be choosers. Those that don't fall into the beggar group still have choices.
I'd say the government shouldn't be part of the problem- just to save some money only to spend on healthcare later.
cheap breaded/fatty/ high in sodium food are part of the problem- seems simple enough for the dreaded Gubmint to start being healthier...
