What, you aren't able to send them to school with lunch? Hell if pink cookies are that damned important to your child's diet, send some with them to eat with lunch.

Good lord!

I guess that was an attempt at being a smart-ass?

People are angry because people are complaining about government taking away a 40 year tradition.

It's more government over-reach, and people are defending it!

This is reason #294867 why I home-school my son.

A healthy diet for kids should not eat more than 16grams of sugar a day, too bad educating people on eating healthy is considered a nazy or socialist agenda. How many billions would america save on healthcare every year if people got educated on eating right,

But i understand its more fun to blame obama.

Wait, why are conservative children in socialist public schools to begin with? Didn't the almighty Ron Paul decree "thou shalt home school thy children"

Why aren't they in at least private school? That way you don't have to deal with the evils of socialist public schools with their "science" and other non conservative learning.

What do you mean, "overreach"? It's a government school! It's THEIR school. Why shouldn't they say how it's run?

That's like Cliven Bundy complaining because the government has been letting him graze his cattle of federal land all this time and then they took back what was rightfully theirs.

The government has been paying for kids to eat sugar- and butter- (and CRISCO- for Christ's sake) laden cookies all these years and now, they see what damage it's doing to the kids, so they took it away.

They don't owe the public pink cookies!

There has to be a middle ground. Somewhere between fatty and disgusting as hell.

Can't someone find it?? Geez.


I agree. You have a great point about food waste, and this is one step in making a change. If kids aren't eating the lunches, let's do something about it, but pink cookies in NOT the answer.

I recommend the parents find it. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that you can't prepare fresh nutritious food for hundreds if not thousands of people in a partitioned side of the school auditorium. There has to be an option because the school has taken custody of the children (probably unwisely) and the parents have willingly surrendered them without taking even the slightest precautions to be sure their children will actually be OK there, so they do what they can, which means taking bids for affordable frozen processed foods within certain specifications. It is an emergency measure to avoid the dilemma of kids having to either starve or be illiterate (and it ties into larger issues of economics, family values, politics, etc but lets face it, if we were gonna fix this system for our kids sake it would be done by now, so lets keep this down to brass tacks... or school pizza crust, which would be the next most solid and tiny item).

I know better than to have kids- because I can't do any of the things necessary to protect them from a world this badly messed up. See how that works conservatives? What would I have to be able to do? I'd have to be able to home school them, meet their real needs instead of buying bargain basement substitutes for what they need, and chaperone them to other more appropriate venues to gain social skills. In other words I'd have to work no more than 40 favorably scheduled hours for at least $25/hr with the support of a mother who could make a small income either form home or on my days off and provide the majority of the care time- or some such similar arrangement. I'd have to have something approaching abundance.

Instead I don't always eat when I want to- not that I couldn't, it's not that bad- but I've got my priorities and I can stand to lose a little weight better than a growing child can. So you know what I do. Well that's too graphic to explain. Lets just say that my love life doesn't cause children.

I figured it out, most mammals just act that way instinctively, and the average American parent...

But lets go, yay school lunches, they're absolutely vital if we want America to do its part towards pushing global population over 10 billion in my lifetime by enabling people to have kids and not be responsible for raising them, and the only way that kind of population boom isn't going to blow up in our faces is if a lot of those people grow up to be bedridden by obesity and die young.

Schools weren't forcing the kids to eat the cookie. They were offering it. Government in their infinite wisdom decreed that the school should not offer it.

Parents used to teach their kids eating practices. But not to worry anymore. Government has stepped in.

I'd send my child to a public school if they taught anything worth a tinkers damn anymore. But they don't. So I won't.

You should feel good, however.

This IS the government you wanted.

I for one will not be happy until public schools only serve their children a thin gruel-like nutrient paste; colorless of course, as to not offend anyone.

Alright, pink cookies for all the kiddies. But only if they come with a warning label/bow.



I suppose the lack of a mouth on the warning label means that not only shouldn't you eat this, but you can't!

Obama didn't do this. His wife may have with her school lunch changes....but who cares? Its junk food....why is anyone concerned that it won't be on the school menu anymore?

I think Vagabond pointed out that the school lunchroom is an environment where you children are upsold without your supervision....and we are worried about a cookie?

My take: the schools suck in general in any given area in the US. We all know it. Matter of fact, many of us are the voters that allow them to suck, and can claim our own complicity in their lack of performance.

The pink cookie....that is like that left hand out there waving around distracting you. Meanwhile, you are still being punched in the face. Quit worrying about the cookie.

But you are the one that thinks pink cookies are an entitlement.

I'm so confused by right rage sometimes.

Wow Some more Totally and Fully Bull $h! _t from our wonderful Government, eh?
If they would mind their own business, no not the "hey I just saw where we can steal some more of the taxpayers money" side, but the side of their own business of taking care of the people here in the U S of A.

“That being said, I wish there was a way we could make those cookies available on special occasions,” she said. “Everybody deserves the equivalent of a piece of birthday cake once in a while.”


Would this be the same discussion if the article was about Obama removing birthday cakes from school lunch menus?

I get the feeling it would be the same discussion if Obama removed brocolli from the menu. LOL

I also get the feeling that "federal guidelines" tied to funding are meant to keep us bickering over local issues instead of national issues.
