Again, sounds like the parents need to get involved and not rely on the school to get their kids the calorie intake they need.

It does not really matter who is to blame even if there was a single person to blame it is still a crappy system......i find it disturbing that this is state of American public schools...

With the price of private school, you can bet your bottom dollar that they are paying for every penny of that lunch. I must ask though, why the fascination? Who really cares what the Obama daughters eat? It seems a bit creepy that anyone would even be so interested that they would research it. Fanatical wingnuts.
2001 -- Despite a 1995 goal to reduce waiting times for primary care and specialty appointments to less than 30 days, the GAO finds that veterans still often wait more than two months for appointments.
2003 -- A commission appointed by President George W. Bush reports that as of January 2003, some 236,000 veterans had been waiting six months or more for initial or follow-up visits, "a clear indication," the commission said, "of lack of sufficient capacity or, at a minimum, a lack of adequate resources to provide the required care."
2005 -- An anonymous tip leads to revelations of "significant problems with the quality of care" for surgical patients at the VA's Salisbury, North Carolina, hospital, according to congressional testimony. One veteran who sought treatment for a toenail injury died of heart failure after doctors failed to take account of his enlarged heart, according to testimony.
2006 -- Sensitive records containing the names, Social Security numbers and birth dates of 26.5 million veterans are stolen from the home of a VA employee who did not have authority to take the materials. VA officials think the incident was a random burglary and not a targeted theft.
2007 -- Outrage erupts after documents released to CNN show some senior VA officials received bonuses of up to $33,000 despite a backlog of hundreds of thousands of benefits cases and an internal review that found numerous problems, some of them critical, at VA facilities across the nation.

ALL rich kids who go to private schools get better lunches than the public school kids. Those rich kids also have better clothes, better cars, better everything. What's your point? You want better lunches? Get rich and send your kids to private school. This is America, where everyone has a chance to make it big!

Those are the Bush II years. But of course, the problems didn't start there, the timeline goes back to the beginning of the VA.
"No, I don't think Obama is a figurehead. I think Republicans in Congress have consistently blocked legislation that would have helped Vets. Remember that appropriations start in Congress? Remember that Separation of Powers thing? Yeah."
I wouldn't call you partisan for holding any Administration responsible for what it has done; I call you partisan because what you're saying about the Obama Administration is patently untrue.
See reason? Right back at cha. Look beyond your hatred for the man Obama (and apparently, his wife) and look at the real political dynamics. The President CAN'T make laws or appropriations on his own. That is up to Congress.
