    Again, you're all a bunch of talkers. The obesity problem is growing. if you don't want the state the intervene, the conservatives should make a civic movement to show their metal and solve this problem. but they won't because again, talkers.

    Except, IF it is a problem, it's not one government (right or left) should be involved in. You want to eat wheatgrass for lunch, bring your own.

    if
    IF
    IF
    IF

    Yes, obesity isn't a problem. You just discredit yourself when you put the IF there.

    I don't see any civic minded movement making a difference in terms of obesity that isn't in any way tied to the govt.

    Interesting- you use dishonest and insulting comments from the very beginning but it is ME who you think is this way....

    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.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    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.

    Odd train of thought... now healthier food choices are wheatgrass...

    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...

    And the irony is that those unhealthy foods are heavily subsidized by the govt. The biggest thing the govt could do to get people (all people, not just school kids) to eat healthier food would be to stop subsidizing Big Ag.
