    Re: White House to put up to 5,000 salad bars in schools

    I've got no care if you want to replace the "junk" in School Lunch for "healthier" things.

    I do have an issue however if you're just throwing more money at it, ADDING "healthier" stuff that is unlikely to be used and likely to be a large waste of money while leaving the "junk" in place.

    Here's a wild thought...why don't we actually address what's being suggested in this thread, which is not replacing any of the bad stuff but simply throwing more money at the whole situation pointlessly.

    Really, who in the world in this thread is arguing against possibly swapping out Soda, Fried Food, and Pizza for more healthy alternatives? None that I've seen. I've seen people having issue with ADDING something to the options which would cost money and likely have little to no positive affect.

    by looking at that story above, one must admit we are running headlong towards a medical crisis caused primarily by poor diet
    so, i am not refusing to address that major problem with enormous health and financial implications for our nation

    but when seeing how ill-conceived this salad bar "solution" appears to be, out of sync with the school systems and the FDA, with nothing to indicate that it will in any address the diet problem our kids (and their parents) have, this roll out of salad bars in school cafeterias seems to be little more than applying lipstick on a pig
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

If so, how can you condone taxpayer-funded school lunches that include any sort of unhealthy fast foods? You should be just as outraged as they were in the Soda-buying thread. Should we be surprised that you're not?
    Never even saw it. You should not make such assumptions.

    Don't see what the one has to do with the other, anyway. You're going on and on about the kids of people bitching about something without having any idea what their kids actually do.

    Here's a wild thought... why don't we completely eliminate throwing taxpayer money away on crap food for school lunches and give kids ONLY healthy choices?

    Who do you think would actually be against that (at least in principle; some may argue over exact implementation)?

    So, let's hear your opinion: Should people receiving food stamps be permitted to purchase a couple of sodas for their kids each month, or not?

    I'm afraid you're terribly confused. I'm "going on" about ADULTS complaining (for example, in the Soda-buying thread) that their tax dollars are providing the means for poor families to purchase the occasional soda for their kids, when THEY don't have any information about the overall diet the kids in those poor families are actually consuming.

    The rightwingers in this thread certainly aren't having hissy fits over "bad" food choices, the way they did in the Soda-buying thread. I wonder why that is?

    Hardly. You simply made an assumption based on . . . well, nothing of substance.

    Don't care.

I'm "going on" about ADULTS complaining (for example, in the Soda-buying thread) that their tax dollars are providing the means for poor families to purchase the occasional soda for their kids, when THEY don't have any idea how well (or badly) the kids in those poor families actually eat.
    I don't think so:

God forbid their chunktastic rug-rats eat a 100% healthy meal from time to time.

    Maybe they're just out to piss you off. You, personally.

    If this is what you believe, then you're undoubtedly wandering around out where the buses don't run. Buh-bye and have a nice evening.
